Background: I work at OSU as a graduate teaching associate and lift at Ludus Magnus. I am a raw lifter who competes in the 105lb weight classes, and am currently prepping for my next meet (when grad school finally gives me a weekend off) . Currently, I am in the process of trying to accomplish my lofty lifting goals,survive graduate school, and teach undergraduates about what I really love, TRAINING..

** amazingly, I was very quick in the eccentric. This has not always been the case coming out of the eccentric block (mesocycle). I attribute it to my idea to contrast each speed set with an eccentric with a fast set... But that's just my hypothesis...

No pictures from today's training. Instead, I'll leave you with the message I left on Matt Wenning's white board the other morning. I'm assuming Sheena left the lovely heart and message to "bee yourself." I added the appropriate addendum hahah (in header).
