Actually the guy who won the push press contest last weekend was downing those seemingly nonstop (before, during, and after the comp.). I guess he's been in-the-know for a while.

He refers to it as 'Vitamin R.'

Photos from this year's outing...

We held a small meet at the campsite this time around (hence the lifting suits). We somehow managed to get 3 hours of lifting in between downpours.

I set a PR by eating 4 hamburgers and a hotdog during the warmups.

The best part was after the competition, when we all jumped into the lake wearing our singlets. Refreshing.

Man what a fantastic outing. Everytime I am up at our lake place I think about having some kind of lifting event up there.
