Default Lifting in the Woods...

Had a chance to train in scenic upstate NY this past weekend. My coach rented a cabin by the lake for the week and one of the guys built a platform in our picnic area.

Coming from a city that has virtually no gyms left to train O-lifts -- let alone space to train outdoors -- it was a real blast and I couldn't ask for anything more...lots of meat, beer, tasteless jokes, swimming, and nice snatches.

Here are some photos.

Some notables: my teammate John setting a C&J "PR on the mountain" (not shown, but I got his 100kg attempt), LBH lifter Eric Briglia (62kg schoolage natl. champ), and special guest Pete Madow, who close-grip power snatched 100kg for a triple

What's my point? Nothing really...I'm still stuck at the office and needed a distraction.

Don't know what's weirder; the fact that you guys did that or that I'm envious...
