I Don't Always Workout, But When I Do...

A lot of good points to focus on with the push press today.  One of them was staying in contact with the bar through the dip and drive, and making sure to not "beat the bar to the dip" position, causing the bar to crash on you.  Chase demonstrates that really well here, along with keeping the bar back through the dip and drive.

Bend It Like Johnny!

Some serious deadlifting went on today, PR's all over the place!  Nice job everyone, keep up the good work, more PR's to come!
 At 5 tonight we were noticing the amount of bend or flex in the bar right off the ground compared to later in the lift.  We got the best shot of that with Johnny here.  Couple nice shots with Doug and Sparky as well (click the photo).
