Ok so the results are out, we know who the best of the best are, but what about the rest, are they not worth mentioning? What about the stories withing the story, what about our own Carry Warner,for example she never did Deadlift 185#, not even once, before the games, she did it 25 times.
What about Stavros Kalogirou, he ripped every single one of his calluses of both hands and still kept going on the pull-ups bar, slipping on his own blood.
Yes it was great to see OPT in action or Jolie, but I had more fun watching the rest grinding it out and achieve P.R.s
the look on their faces as they finished the work. Every one gave 110%, and I think they all got something back, some personal accomplishment, some training tips,some ideas, for sure some great memories, to bring back to their boxes and start building on it for the next year’s games.
I for once already can’t wait.

Doing this one simple thing made people loose TWICE as much weight as dieters who didn’t do it. Can you guess what it is?
“The study involved people from four U.S. cities: Portland, Oregon; Baltimore, Maryland; Durham, North Carolina; and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Their average weight loss was about 13 pounds (6 kg). But those ________________ six or seven days a week lost about 18 pounds (8 kg) compared to 9 pounds (4 kg) for those not _____________________..
The average age of people in the study was 55.”
