    By Brandon Lilly | In Training | on September 28, 2013

    While at the gym the other day I was talking with several of the guys about this, and that, and we were just going on about different aspects of our training. A little bit later one of my teammates (Kenny Mason) approached me, and asked what motivated me. He made clear that it was not […]

  • The Dance

    By Paul Carter | In Training | on September 10, 2013

    I hate country music. I’d rather fight off a gym full of spider monkeys equipped with samurai swords than listen to country. I understand that many people enjoy it, but many people enjoy a great deal of things that make no sense to me. I’m sure I enjoy something that would make the masses cringe. Like cottage cheese and peanut […]

  • Patience and Belief

    By Paul Carter | In Training | on July 15, 2013

    “The two hardest tests on the spiritual road are the patience to wait for the right moment and the courage not to be disappointed with what we encounter.” ― Paulo Coelho When I started lifting weights at fourteen years old I could barely bench press the bar.  By “the bar” I mean the empty bar.

  • Fight Club

    By Brandon Lilly | In Powerlifting | on July 3, 2013

    One of my favorite books of all-time (yes it was a book before a movie), and also favorite movies is “Fight Club”.
