Back in Town

Returned from a week's vacation visiting my folks in Wisconsin today. Ended up taking yesterday off from GS practice, but I did pay a visit to my RKC friend Derek Toshner's gym in Fond du Lac and took a class. I am now beginning to develop the delayed soreness. It was a good time and I had fun catching up with Derek afterwards over dinner. This guy is a monster, cut in the Andrew Durniat mold, and could be a super star GS athlete if he ever decided to give it a go. He has put up some incredible snatch numbers with both the 24 and 32kg bells doing the SSST. Below is a clip of his 32kg attempt - 207 reps in 10 minutes. Granted he would only get one hand switch and would have to work technique for a while, but the conditioning is phenomenal.

Awesome clip Matt! I've always thought that there are a lot of potential GS guys out there. They just don't do the GS training & sport.
