This meet is a benefit for Camp Quality, a camp for children with cancer.  All of our proceeds go to them.  With the help of all our generous sponsors, but particularly Metabolic Technologies and Optimum Nutrition, we gave Camp Quality our largest check to date, $7000.  That brings our total to over $34,000.

My training is going well.  I have been hitting the big bar lifts pretty hard and have continually been setting PRs in them.  I am hoping to attempt a couple different world records in the neck lift in the near future.  Stay tuned for that!  I am also planning on hitting a powerlifting meet or two before the end of the year. 

As it is summer, this is the time I have to get lots of work done on the farm, as I am out of school.  This work includes cutting and hauling brush, mending or building fence, work on the structures, or scooping poop out of the barn.  It is often grueling work, but stuff that has to be done, often on excessively hot days.  I can’t let this get in the way of my training, and that is where HMB comes in.  It allows me to push my body to the limit on the farm, and still recover in time to hit PR workouts.  After which, I refuel with Optimum Nutrition's (ON) Platinum Hydrowhey.  Thanks to HMB and ON for keeping my training on the right track!  Until next time.
