Road to the 2015 American Open: Week 6, Day 4 and Week 7, Day 1 and 2

Training is going great! My knees are a little tight, but that’s the only issue right now. I wasn’t able to get my fifth day of training in last week due to a road trip down to New Mexico for a presentation that I was fortunate enough to give. I may only get four days[…]

A Weightlifter Consumes a Strength Coach
