Pictures from this weekend at: http://jessev01.shutterfly.com/

A good amount of people from outside our group check out the site and are familiar with what we are doing. They expect a lot of you when they see you workout.

A couple of lessons learned from this weekend:

1.)Competition is critical in bringing out the intensity. It is really difficult to match the that on your own. Not impossible, just harder.

2.) Standards matter. They were brutal with the standards at the qualifier. It leveled the competition though. It showed me where I have been cutting corners.

3.) We came to the consesus that we shouldn't hit the ground after the workout unless your body gives out on you. "What if they are still shooting?"

The horizontal racks to hold the bumper plates should have arrived by now. If so, the rest of the bumper plates will get moved in today or tomorrow. Same goes for the remaining 45lb bars.
The spotting straps should be in soon as well.
