Good stuff Vamoose! So why are you going all the way to Minnesota for the TSC? Aren't there any gyms closer to your area that will be hosting one? I know that many Crossfit facilities usually host em.

I've got a few friends that are graduating this semester and moving to the Minneapolis area where the event is hosted. There's one a couple hours closer in Wisconsin, but being raised a Chicago sports fan I try to stay out of that state as much as possible. The middle of Michigan's Upper Peninsula is essentially the middle of nowhere.
"Do not make the mistake of limiting your practices to any one set of lifts...Practice everything...single and double-handed lifts, snatching and swinging, jerking and pressing, lying down with weights, supporting weights, lifting weights while laid on the back, ring weights, human weights, and, if possible, double-handed lifts to the knee, and harness lifts, also holding the bell aloft and bringing a weight after with the disengaged hand." ~ Arthur Saxon
