I will be gone from Monday through Wednesday this week, but hope to catch up with everyone by Thursday or Friday. Weightlifting practice resumes this Saturday at 10 am. Anyone wishing to compete in the Blue Ridge Open on May 22nd, please contact me or Jason Davidson (http://www.raleighweightliftingclub.org) to work on your lifts.
Those of you looking to lose bodyfat, include a 30-45 minute medium intensity steady state cardio session 3-5 times per week at least 4 hours before or after your workout. This can be a bike ride, fast walk, jog, treadmill at an incline, etc.
