I have been working on a highlight video for Coach Mike the past few weeks. This has been a tough project because I had to clip and edit a lot of videos as well shoot some new footage. The video will be posted here in a couple of days. Stay tuned.

Since this blog is essentially my training log I will sometimes post videos of my technique work so that I can look back and see how far I have come. Here are some clips of me doing 4 sets of 2 block cleans from mid thigh w/275#. I never really spent too much time doing block work in the past but am now seeing the benefits of them.,,they are making me work on dropping faster underneath the bar, which will help once the weight get close to my max. 

Coach Mike getting stronger mentally and physically by doing the 20 rep squats @300# after his regular squat routine.
