The Evil One(s) visits the Rifstonian Institute.


So honored to have Pavel and Brett stop by my humble garage gym this afternoon and get some serious training in before the start of the festivities this weekend. Got to work with Brett on his squat and bench teshnik and Pavel with his deadlift. SO much fun to work with guys this serious about their training. Serious detailed examination and analysis of every nuance of every part of the lifts. Looks to be a great weekend of training and learning already.

If you added all the hair from the three heads, you would still be left with no hair. Muscle and smiles, yes, but no hair.

Greetings from the nation's ice-box! Hope you guys have a great time this weekend.

Brett needs to squat more.

Agreed. I just took the dog out to pee, and it was horrible! People who live here are totally insane.

I wanted to say about the hairs but Aaron took it first.

Kind of surprised I've never seen you three in a same picture.

Lot to say, but one of the best pictures I've seen.
