We had a great time. Kiara wants to do the Pittsburgh open in December.

She made me promise to buy her a Werksan Women's Bar once she can clean and jerk 100 pounds. I couldn't say no.

All the best,

Nice numbers.

That is awesome about her wanting a women's bar! I wish I could get the kids to want stuff like that! heh

Thanks Allen,
It was both humbling and exhilirating at the same time. I loved it.

After she competed, she went to the warm up room and put some Hi-tech plates on a woman's bar and clean and jerked it several times - which was actually more than she lifted in contest. When she finally figured out how much was on the bar, she told me, "see, I told you I could have lifted more."

I had so much fun.

All the best, Arden

Arden my most sincere congratulations to both of you, especially for your daughter.

The fact that she got up there on the platform and lifted in a comp is just outstanding. I really don't think it will be too long before you have to buy that Werksan bar.

Jr has been kind of on again off again about gymnastics this year. I was really afraid with the success he was having at football that he wouldn't continue. Well Tuesday night he told my wife that he wasn't going to quit and that he was really enjoying gym. Yeah Him.

So I get home tonight from St. Louis and my son and I are in the garage. Not even sure how or why but there we were hanging out in the garage. He says can you video me doing that thing with the bar where you lay down. I said sure but I don't really know what you are talking about. He says that thing you do with Laney and me, like the guy does on all the videos.

Ah Ha I say a TGU. Yep he says. I said do you want to use your KB he says no I am going to use my bar just like Mr Adam. His bar is a 5 KG Pendlay Bar. So we reviewed the move with a staff and talked about what to do if the bar came loose and he said I am ready. Here is the result.

We also played with my new Rolling Thunder handle. That is pretty darn cool. He lifted a 16 KG KB with it which impressed me. I strapped some chain around 2 45 LB PLates and gave it a ride with each hand. I really should have bought a loading pin. Guess I will order that tomorrow.
