USAPL 2013 Raw Nationals Meet Report

USAPL 2013 Raw Nationals Meet Report

Aug 2, 2013

Another year of Raw Nationals is in the books. If you weren’t there and weren’t watching the live stream (Seriously? Why not?), you definitley missed out. The crowds were good.  The venue was great overall.  The warm up room was huge, the hotel staff was very nice and helpful and there were plenty of restaurants near by.  And if you stayed in the...

2013 USAPL Raw Nationals- Taking off the Training Wheels

2013 USAPL Raw Nationals- Taking off the Training Wheels

Jul 24, 2013

The week before I left was pretty busy.  Getting the last couple of work assignments done before being out of the office for a couple of days, going to a conference, laundry, getting the house ready for the friend that was going to house sit and keep the furry minions out of trouble (hopefully), making sure said furry minions were ready to be left, getting a...

Week 18 Training – The End

Week 18 Training – The End

Jul 15, 2013

So here we are.  The last week of training before Nationals.  This makes me a little anxious because it means there’s no more time.  No more time to work out whatever weird form stuff might come back and bite me in the butt.  No more time to really clean up my diet and eat better.  No more time to lose a couple pounds.  No more time to start walking more...

MENTAL MONSTER

This isn’t very long but I write things how I like to read. I try to get straight to the point. I’m going to tell you how I became a Mental Monster. I hope it works for you. When approaching anything in life, you have to be confident. If you dont believe in yourself,then how can you expect to succeed. Others may doubt you or even put you down but if...

Week 17 Training – Anatomy, Adversity and Slaying the Boogeyman

Week 17 Training – Anatomy, Adversity and Slaying the Boogeyman

Jul 9, 2013

Monday This week started with my last massage therapy and chiro appointments before Nats.  The chiro appointment went fine.  My SI joints are now back where they belong for at least the next couple of weeks.  My massage therapy appointment was a bit more dramatic. “Mother of GAWD!!  What the hell is that?” “It’s your sciatic...

2 weeks out from Raw Nats and new trick for this damn heat!

So the heat started last week and it hasn’t stopped. 94,89,100,98. Just none stop.  As an athlete this is killer unless you train in it all the time. I started drinking more water and bananas  to help but it was a no go. So I started with the Vitamin waters. This was a little better but still not quite there. I posted up what was happening to me on my...

Week 16 Training – Clumsiness and Bad Math Skills

Week 16 Training – Clumsiness and Bad Math Skills

Jul 1, 2013

So here we are.  Three weeks out from USAPL Raw Nationals.  I know some of you are saying “Wait, it’s only 2 weeks” and it kind of is.  But I’m supposed to lift on Sunday so we’re calling it 3. This is about the time that I start thinking about all the random ways I could get injured on a daily basis that would keep me from...

Week 5 day 1 Raw Nats Training

OK it’s getting close to game time. This is always the time where I kick it into high gear. Pushing my body and mind beyond the breaking point. After years of training, you  reach a level of self awareness that is unmatched. Knowing exactly how far to go without going to far. Yes anything can happen at anytime but essentially  you can push yourself to...

Week 14 Training – Because Not Every Week Can Be a Good One

So if you train for any amount of time, you realize (probably sooner rather than later) that not every week is going to be your week.  Aside from the general soreness and the 1RM fiasco from a couple weeks ago, things have been going really good.  Looks like I was overdue for one of those not so good weeks…….. Tuesday: Tuesday started with...

Raw Nationals Training Week 4 Day 1

I knew today I needed to go up pretty heavy but didn’t want to completely max out. I want to save the Max for the meet. There is no point in risking anything this close to the big show. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy because of last nights sleep. Tossed and turned all night. I just couldn’t get comfortable. Foam rolled and actually fell...
