Height: 6"3 or so.
Chest: 44 inches
Those are the only measurements i really look forward to changing. Goals are just to get more lean. Lose some of the body weight, get bigger arms, legs, and shrink the waist a bit. I took some pics to seen any changes before and after and what not. Should be interesting and i should seem some changes.

Nothing beats just hanging out with the family. Relaxing and enjoying their company. Sharing stories and having endless laughs. Keep these memories close and never let them slip away no matter what! Merry Christmas!

I finished my leg drive until my shoulders were slightly over the bar but i was vertical. The bar path was close and i was literally pulled under the bar. By the time i realized i was half way up on my clean and was not using my legs at all! I was completely surprised! I am extremely grateful for the coaches i have that train me and put me in the best possible position to make me successful!

Any athlete knows what mental endurance in a sport takes and how hard it is to reach a breaking point during a match, game, race, etc. When your faced with a challenge that you are not 100% positive you will win. Will you still try? Be physically strong is one thing but mentally strong is a different story. Strive to be the greatest make that only other opponent YOU. YOUR the only competition and enemy you will battle with throughout your life. Conquer it now before its to late.

Although i do have bad days its what you do after those bad days that make a difference. I am thankful for all of the opportunity's i have been given.

For Olympic lifting you have to have strong lats, core, shoulders, and back. Those are the other main factors besides the obvious leg strength needed. So my coach wrote a workout for me to strengthen those areas i need to be stronger at. Feels good to be in the gym twice a day.

It reminds me of how the London riots started. People "protesting" and then a large majority of them made it violent. And the police not wanting to look bad did nothing. The end result.. millions of dollars in damages and thankfully no one hurt. Just waiting for this to play out. What will the police do in the end?

This is a intense video showing students of UC Davis getting pepper sprayed. Make you wonder what else is going on that isn't getting as much attention as it should. What do you think? Should there be more press on the "Occupy movement?" Or should this get swept under the rug as well as the treatment of these protesters. Everyone has a right to be heard what do you think?

You were hired for a reason. Or the girl is dating you for a reason. Because YOU are good at what YOU do. So be confident and ALWAYS keep learning or staying ahead of the game. This will even solidify your confidence not only in your self but in other people also.
For weightlifters its almost a MUST to have a certain "swagger" about you. You don't walk up to the platform doubting your self scared that you can't make the next lift. Your looking down, demeaning the weight, making it do what YOU want to do. I even go as far as visualizing me already completing the lift. Standing victorious as everyone else is cheering and congratulating me on how easy it was or how cool it looked.
If your confident enough and have the right tools and experience. You will perform to the best of you ability.

As you can see by my facial expressions i was so happy that i made the lifts i did. I have corrected a lot of technical problems i had in my last competition. So that was a huge part of my success, without the coaching i have received so far i would not have made it even close to any of these lifts. I also have been working and training hard to achieve these goals. Enjoy the video!

I just wanted to share this. If the future looks like this its going to be crazy expensive. And i don't think this would happen anytime soon. I mean have Microsoft looked out their windows? Do they see how this economy is looking? I mean its cool as a idea its downright sexy " mean being a geek." If i had all that technology in my house i wouldn't leave it lol. What do you think?
Give everyone what they want answers. Make a purpose that everyone can agree on. Fight for a logical cause that will actually be successful. My belief is that they cannot Occupy forever. They need a more effective approach then just sitting there and "making there presence known". Just my 2 cents.

This is me in training doing some Front squats with a Jerk. This was my last set and as the video said i was laughing because i was extremely sore. I don't know why i laugh when i am in pain but still works out for the best lol. That day was extremely fun and glad that the workout had the perfect amount of intensity and some new workouts that i haven't done in awhile.

Well i had training in the morning then a 4 and a half hour Java Programming class. Thankfully as if the soda machine Gods new i was going to be taking that class this semester, had a vending machine that dispenses Rock Stars. Although i am extremely tolerant against these drinks because i drink them like soda. They still give me a little kick and they taste good to me :D.
I probably need to move to coffee soon. And recommendations would be helpful! Except black coffee it taste like a battery to me.. and yes... i licked a battery before..

Just try to keep your life drama free as possible. Look at the people you hang around with if you are not the person always causing drama. Sometimes fixing others peoples problems all the time is wearing you out and making you irritable. Just food for thought take care!

Circuit training is very effective in burning calories. If your dedicated to weight loss i recommend it. Although it is not the cure all of type of exercises. There must be a good mixture of exercises in there such as upper, lower, abs and leg exercises. Just make sure that everything is done safety and correctly. Because if you don't and they are just hard to perform and your doing them incorrectly they will not benefit you as much.
Pros: Fat loss, gain lean muscle, build muscle, calorie burner
Cons: Very fatiguing, could cause injury, extremely difficult, need a lot of motivation.
Overall i think is the most positive thing you could do and should do while in the gym or even if you have some at home. VERY important thing is to lift CORRECTLY or else it will either damage your joints, not be as effective, or even hurt you. If your lifting for the first time try and find someone who knows what they are doing. Because sometimes having someone watch you is the best thing you can do. You do not have to have a personal trainer but someone who can help and teach you the right moments. For girls its a HUGE MYTH you will not look like a MAN or have really broad shoulders. It has almost impossible with weight training alone to be "bulky" "look like a man" and so on. Men like women who look athletic or in somewhat decent shape.
Pros: Gain muscle, Lose fat, look skinny, look athletic. more confidence
Cons: If no proper training could injure your self, seek guidance, bring a buddy, time consuming.
These are only my opinions and i understand everyone is different. Me personally i do Olympic Weightlifting as you all know by now lol. I like it the best since it is a full body workout literally. Let me know what works the best for you. Or hopefully you can try some of the training i listed just take a step to get healthy it will be a great journey for you!

to take every cent and every dime,
to steal what was never his,
this was his chance to make it big,
to make new friends and be really cool,
to be the toughest kid in school,
he stuck the gun to the clerk and said,
"Put the money in the bag or you will be hurt!",
the clerk with fear in his eyes nodded his head,
for the fear of anything else he would be dead,
but he has been through this one time to many,
and vowed he would never be robbed of any dime or penny,
he took a gun hidden underneath the counter,
there was a storm of steel and led,
the clerk was injured but the kid was dead,
never to make it big,
because of the choices he made as a kid.

The taste of success is a addicting one. It will only make me work and train harder to be able to far exceed my goals and expectations. In no way i will let this get to my head. I am never satisfied in just being "good" i want to work hard to be perfect. I mean my first big goal is to win a gold medal at collegiate nationals. It starts some where why not start now?

This happened yesterday it was my Grandmas 81st birthday! She looks completely healthy and full of life! This was great seeing all of my family. We all have been through a rough time with my Grandpa with cancer and all of the other stresses of life. But other then that we are a tight knit family that always sticks together no matter what the tough times and or drama that comes our way. Thought you guys might like a short video :) enjoy!

But the important thing I think women should take from that is that the men have confidence not only in themselves but in their relationship. Do not and I repeat do not take this as a sign of unfaithfulness. Trust me there will be other signs for this and they won't be pretty. I think overall jealousy can be a ugly thing. Jealousy can be mistaken for clingynes. Which some girls like and guys do to. But jealousy is a negative aspect of any relationship and should be avoided if you can. Most of the time it's the person who is jealous that has an insecurity, so it is up to the other person to help them overcome it. Let me know what you think :).

Later that week he came back smiling while we were in our line before we went into the classroom. For some reason i walked right up to him because i am fed up with him bothering me. So i walked up and said, " You are going to leave me alone, everyone knows what you did to me! No one even likes you! So stop bothering and leave me the hell alone!" When i was little "hell" was a bad word lol and everyone looked at me like i punched the kid.
Fast forward 7 years later...
When i was walking home from football practice i heard someone call my name. I turned around and it was Josh. He stood at about 5"6 and then i stood about 6"1 and i smiled and said, "Hey long time no see!" We talked for a little bit and went are separate ways. The last thing i thought after i walked away was i am glad i wasn't a bully when i was little or i would have been short all my life.

This also could possibly the competition that i qualify for collegiate nationals. * my last total was about 10kg away from the qualifying total* This is also a very emotional too because i promised by grandpa who has cancer that i would take him to see me perform at nationals. I am so looking forward to tell them the news and setting a date that we all can look forward to. Win or lose he will defiantly have that lasting memory of the trip we both took to nationals.

But on the other hand some people have the unfortunate occasion of remembering all of mistakes of the past. From that one decision that changed their life to the other choice that might have closed 10 doors and opened one. The only mistake you can do from remembering the past negative choices you made is to dwell on them. To bring those negative emotions back into your mind and let it affect the people around you. Although you do sometimes need to vent on things but they should never impact your present relationships or they might soon also become apart of your past.
Live in the present the past is over for a reason, if you think of a negative moment in the past its another moment you lose in the present.

The other mental obstacle was my grandpa which is diagnosed with cancer. Before I was going to leave for my workout I had a text from my dad telling mehe was at the hospital with my grandpa. My heart sank as I thought how much pain he must be in. It was only two weeks ago when he saw me compete in my first competition. After that i told him i was going to take him to collegiate nationals with me next year when I qualify.
I made the decision to countinue with my training that day although on every lift I was having a battle with my mind struggling to control my emotions. During the last part of my workout I realized that I could countinue with these negative thoughts or use it to my advantage. I then made it my goal that my grandpa was going to see me perform at collegiate nationals and I was going to train as hard as I could so he can see my improvement. I finished that day with a new squat PR 150kg=330 pounds.
No matter what hardships you might face with outside of the weight room or training. You have to push yourself to finish your workout. There will be a point where you might be mentally drained it will be up to you to decide if you were strong both mentally and physically to continute. This is just my opinion I understand everyone has a breaking point. But wanted to share my experience to just say its possible to push even if you have a bad day.
Thank you for reading. Focus on your goals and stay both mentally and physically strong during training and in life. You can be your best coach and your worst enemy.
I just want to close with I am open to comments suggestions or anything of the sort. I will try to make it a habit of posting regularly. About training, school, and exciting events. Have a couple I need to post in my next...err post..lol. Thanks for whoever reads this! And I hope you have a great day/night!
