Training, Week Of 5/6/2013

Note 1: You will notice that on Tuesdays and Saturdays there are now two groups – strength and technique. If you are not absolutely certain of which group you should be in, talk to me!

Note 2: The next meet I am planning for is the Tommy Kono, on August 17 in Sacramento. I would like as many of you to lift there as possible. Please let me know sooner rather than later if you can make it or not.
