Strength and Power Cycle 3 Week 2

You'd think with the number of pictures I have of Vaidy squatting that that's the only thing he does. It's just that he looks good when he squats. Here's an easy 225 warmup of him as the weightlifting camp was just getting started.
As always, Jordan did a great job leading the weightlifting camp this weekend. It's amazing how a little technique practice will turn your old max into your opener (and it still looks pretty!)

Jordan and I love having these events on the weekend, we'll run them as often as there is interest. If you missed out on this one and want us to schedule some more please let us know. Everyone always looks better when they leave one of these.

As an added bonus I got to rant about nutrition for 45 minutes - so that's always a good day.
