Possibly a comeback? What?
First of all I want to congratulate all of the Team EFS folks that competed this weekend. Shelby Starnes who won his IFBB pro card, Julia Ladewski, for hitting a big squat PR and posting up a great total at her meet and Mick Manley and Marshall Johnson who hit some huge numbers and PR's as well. Itís really cool and a huge honor to be in the same company as all these great people.
This past Saturday I was helping out at a small amateur highland games competition. I got to see some old friends and as always made some new ones. Afterwards I was enjoying a cigar at home (as seen by the photo, it was classy and sophisticated) and got to thinking. Even though Iím retired and still not recovered from the knee injury that I sustained last June seeing everyone out there enjoying themselves competing really gave me the urge to get out there and toss a few. I want to give my knee one more year to continue to get stronger and maybe, just maybe test it out and do a couple masters games next season. I have sat on the sidelines long enough, itís time to take my talents back where they belong . . . besides, I look way too good in a kilt to be sitting around on my ass.
Sunday training was my usually mobility work and cardio, meaning: I did snatches from a low start position off the floor and cut my grass. Those 20 sets of 2 snatches really loosen me up and make me feel smooth and mobile, I feel itís a lot better than the usual mobility work I see most people doing around here.
Todayís training was just light and fast. I didnít want to flat bench or do anything heavy in hopes that my shoulder will heal up better. I just went for a good pump. It blows to have to back off but sometimes ya just gotta do it.
