Front Squat Max

Front Squat Max
"Today is our second ever online competition with PDX Weightlifting in Protland Oregon. Last time we did Cleans and came out as losers (someone has to lose right?) but this time, i am confident we can out squat them! We are going to do the scoring a bit different so things should come out a bit more even but everyone is invited (and required if you show up) to compete. We are not only a family but a team and we gotta compete together!!
Luckily if you can’t make it in the afternoon we have our morning weightlifting program starting today as well. It is the first of its kind in the area and should be loads of fun! I know someone out there is crazy enough to get up early to throw around some weights right?" Dutch

"Some people create with words or with music or with a brush and paints. I like to make something beautiful when I run. I like to make people stop and say, 'I've never seen anyone run like that before.' It's more than just a race, it's a style. It's doing something better than anyone else. It's being creative." Pre

Paleo...It's what works?

The past couple of month I have really cleaned up my diet, getting ready for the competition season. Kat and I eat nothing but Paleo with Ice cream every now and again ;-). It takes a person time to dial into their nutrition..hell, sometimes years and years. This is what works best for me and I compete at my best eating this way.  Real Food does not come in a package and is not processed or refined.. Is this simple enough for you? Real food consists of meat, fruits and vegetables, and nuts and seeds. Anything beyond that is not real and is not helping you become healthy.
I have, what I believe, are good reasons why not to eat most processed foods and would love to share those with you. All you have to do is ask. ask?
