powerlifting dbrougher I am the most remedial client of @nptihouston ! It’s taken me something like two years to apply Dave’s coaching but damn I think I’ve got it! I got 250 tonight twice, first time on my own in the gym. And pretty good technique I think. It feels good to make progress and it’s great to be strong! Thank you, Dave!!

Rich Kelly Working Through Injuries and Staying Mentally Strong

Sat, 01/06/2018 - 17:54 -- Richard Kelly

If my lifting in 2017 was a song it would be called “Rollercoaster”. Many ups and downs on the platform while making the choice not to freaking scream and give up but to enjoy the ride by staying mentally stronger than ever. Being a Master M-3 220 pound lifter this was my year of fighting through injuries. I started the year healthy but bombed on a 418 Single Ply bench at a UAPL meet in January, but finished the year strong and healthy with a 440 Single Ply bench at a USPF meet in November.

From Asthma To Athlete: Eddie Irvin

powerliftingThe walls around me closing in, the room seems to lose its light as I struggle to fill my lungs with air, then the wheezing kicks in and alerts my mother that it's happening again. I was a mere 9 months old when “Dr Hunter” the pediatrician told my mother that I had asthma. I don't remember a time from my childhood when my mother was not thinking, adapting or preparing for my next asthma attack. From having an allegian specialist come in and clear the house of my common triggers, washing the curtains once a week in a special detergent, buying a allegian

October 21, 1942 ~ May 14, 2017 (age 74) Hatfield Quotes: "Dr Fred Hatfield was the first strength guru to talk about many subjects that others take credit for today. Practiced everything he preached. Fearless in his pursuit of knowledge and peace of mind heart and soul!!" - Ed Coan "Fred Hatfield was a good friend of mine. Over the last couple of years I enjoyed our friendly jabbing back and forth with him. I often got on his case for throwing words out there that only a few ppl understood. Good bye old buddy. See you at the chalk box somewhere down the road." -Larry Pacifico

A Legend Passes: Dr. Fred Hatfield

Sun, 05/14/2017 - 21:42 -- admin
A post from Josh Bryant: "This the hardest post I ever posted on facebook. My mentor in lifting and life, Dr. Fred Hatfield, has passed away unexpectedly. As you know Fred is one of the best of lifters of all-time, the best sports scientist of all-time but that means nothing compared to what a great person he was. Any success I have had I owe to Fred. Fred is one of my best friends. Fred lived life to the fullest everyday and was the happiest he had ever been with his true love Gloria.
