Holy shit... Oregon has oly platforms in the form of their "O". That is pretty sweet!
As for Michigan, no HIT and no balancing on bosu balls, please. They should hire The Mountain That Rides.

Nice to see someone with compassion, Dudeness. Agree or disagree with how he handled his duties, this is still a person with a family, including young kids, who just lost his job right before the holidays. Some of the comments in the other threads about Hunter made me ashamed of certain members of our fan base. I don't care how poorly you think someone performed, typing something like, "he should rape himself with a steak knife" is classless.

Thank you! I was logging on just because I hadn't seen anyone mention them yet. Kuhnhenn is my favorite brewery and DRIPA is my favorite beer of all time.

Not so fast...

|1 year 21 weeks ago||Thank you. If you think it||
Thank you. If you think it may be a bit before you get a half rack, I have a pair of squat stands that I don't plan on taking with me to my new place. They're not the greatest things in the world, but they work. You can have them if you want to come pick them up. I'd rather give them away to a cash strapped student that loves to lift than haggle with someone on Craigslist.

Here's an in-progress pic of one of the rooms in my new space, which shows why I'm selling my power rack.

It works out for both of us then. I don't think I could have sold my beloved power rack to a Crossfitter.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||I'm a guy. My "long shot||
I'm a guy. My "long shot marketing ploy" has gotten me 133 clients in 13 months while training through a polar vortex in an unheated garage with zero advertising other than word-of-mouth. It's gone well enough that my wife and I purchased a 3800 square foot building in downtown Plymouth in order to expand. It's really not a ploy at all... if you can show women that heavy strength training can help them look and feel great and they can learn and participate in such endeavors without every douche bag under the sun telling them how to fix their form, then they'll partake. Results are everything. A lot of my girls are stronger than most guys. See below:
I can and have trained guys and would consider training them again if I thought I needed to, but this is my market. My new place, like my garage, will be women only, other than myself and my other trainer that I contract. I also have three young daughters and I want them to grow up knowing that you can be a girl and be a total badass and that it's not only OK, but admirable.
For now, this is my "side job", but I'm hoping that before long, I'll be able to abandon my Michigan engineering degree and quit that crap.

Of course. See my response to the previous post.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Unless you're one of the||
Unless you're one of the handful of women who posts here, it's irrelevant, as I don't train men. Unless, of course, you're simply asking out of curiosity. I do small groups of six and my cheapest package ends up at $10 per session.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Thanks. That's not my only||
Thanks. That's not my only pice of maize and blue equipment. Here's my yoke. Spray painted this one myself.

Unfortunately, no. The only bar I might consider giving up, you wouldn't want. The rest are my babies.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Haha! It's not very||
Haha! It's not very sneakable. Plus I already have an "in" with the athletic department. I train two of the baseball coaches' wives.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||While I'm sure Jeremy is||
While I'm sure Jeremy is strong, the likelihood of him being able to squat 600-700 is very, very slim. The raw world record (without wraps) for what would be his weight class is 672 and the American record is 578.5.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||That high school coach who||
That high school coach who never punts, always onsides kicks and always goes for two.
Or the guy from Princeton who runs fifteen QB's at a time.
Or Tom Herman (for head coach).

LMAO! That would be so perfect!

Here's a pretty good video from a cancer survivor that details the wasted efforts of a lot of cancer fundraising.

I agree. Darkhorse is one of my faves. As far as Michigan goes, Kuhnhenn is my #1 with DRIPA being my all time favorite beer, then probably a tie for #2 between Darkhorse and Founders. Bells and Jolly Pumpkin after that, but Bells has dropped for me after the last two years of Hopslam batches went down hill.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||I'm also the father of three||
I'm also the father of three daughters and while mine are much younger (almost 2, 5,and 7), I'm tring to start them out right. I now have a two year running tradition where I skip the first part of my older daughters' dance recital at the Power Center and take my youngest around to be photographed at various campus landmarks. I plan to do this every year and present a gigantic photo board to her as a gift when she gets accepted into U of M.

21 months, 4 and 6, so yeah, a little creepy, but hey, it's the internet. Plus he followed it by saying my kids are cool, so it's all good.

I worked on three pointer celebrations with my daughters this afternoon. Two out of three are ready.
