    Steve – We miss you too! Get that knee better.

    Great workout. I worked with 205lbs for the DL workout. Really enjoyed spending half the class on skill work.

    dude, Steve, one-legged DL’s – where were you!?

    Used ~320lbs and the fat bar for the DLs. Had taken my shoes off for the Dls, and felt a few of the claburpulees in my ankle, but not too bad. Skill work was fun, especially the Salty-Dan-Brose-back-flops-off-the-parallettes that ensued. And congrats to Jonathan on the Muscle-Up.

    That was a beast of a workout! I used 354# for the deadlift. It felt good…good-and-heavy. 🙂

    I enjoyed doing the skill work even though I suck on most, if not all, of them. Miles to go before I sleep (as I always say)! lol

    @Steve O.: You are missed in class. Like Sara said, do what you need to do in order to rehabilitate your knee. Hopefully, you have your allergies under control as well.

    Powerlifting note: If anyone is interested in checking out the results of the powerlifting competition I recently attended, look here: http://www.usbf.net/strengthsports/results032710.pdf.

    As some of you already know, the Balance Gym members who competed were Andrew Douglas (Jim’s client), Jim Bathurst, and yours truly. There are two more competitions for 2010: July 24 and December 4. It’s the same format as the March 27 meet (bench, deadlift, and power curl), and it’s in the same location (Dumbarton Middle School in Towson, MD). I think that a few of you are ready for this competition. If you are interested, I would be happy to send you the link to an entry form.

    CFDC’s own ODB…is really enjoying the current weather.

    Steve hope you are on the mend – in the meantime focus on what you can do. I remember working out at one box in LA twice with a guy with a broken ankle but he continued to work what he could. Its an opportunity to focus on other areas. We miss you too man.
