College Football Player Victor C. hit a strong Clean & Jerk Personal Record this morning with 135 kilos (297 lbs) and then followed it up with 6 sets of 2 reps in the Back Squat with 160 kilos done in less then 4.5 seconds per set. Not bad. Keep it up Big Vic. Strength + Speed = Athletic Power
Performance One Wrestler Christiaan Allen of Highland HS went undefeated at the Blackford Duals. He pinned or had a major decision every opponent. Grant Hubber of Mountain View HS went 6-1 and beat a 2 time State Champion in the process. Not bad gentlemen. Both of them were in the gym the next day working on Strength & Power. Athletes with goals and determination to achieve those goals = Champions!
Performance One Wrestler’s Christiaan Allen of Highland HS & Grant Hubber of Mt. View HS are wrestling in the Blackford Duals at ASU today. Highland went 2 and 1 on the first day Wednesday December 28th. Thursday December 29th they will enter the winners bracket and see what happens. Go support the guys and the event. The competition is in honor of fallen ASU Wrestler Steven Blackford. Steve lost his life in a car crash several years ago. Steve was my teammate in College. He had a great passion for wrestling and even a greater passion for life. I am honored to having known Steve even if it was for such a short time. Go Devils!

Sun Always Closed Go spend time with your Family and God!
In this time period when most people want to take it easy the committed athlete will make sacrifices to reach their goals. Because in the end the journey to greatness will be tough and arduous. Those whom strive for life long dreams of the Olympics will push themselves when others won’t. As a Coach I have sacrificed time with my family, connections with friends, and spent an enormous amount of money to see my athletes reach their goals. Because in the end their goals then become my goals. No regrets. What I had I gave, what I kept I lost forever!
Fullback Vic C. Hit an easy 365 lb Bench Press on Tuesday for a PR and then Hit another PR on the Incline on Thursday with 325 lbs. Not bad on his way to 405 Bench by the summer.

In this phase of training for the Nationals most of our athletes are working on muscular endurance. We push the volume and train at a higher intensity level then we did this time out going into the American Open Championships. You must constantly strive to push the envelope on what you have done before. The next phase of training going into the Nationals will see most of our athletes pushing for lower volume and even higher intensities of training. The order and combinations of exercises and manipulation of intensity is the true secret to training weightlifters. I should say drug free athletes.
Yesterday we had 12 different Schools represented in our Athletic Strength & Conditioning Training Sessions throughout the day. That may be a record for us. We our truly blessed to have the opportunity to work with so many talented young athletes. Building the future of athletics in Arizona one big lift at a time.
