Any inspiration lifting videos you watch when you need to get psyched?

Craziest and/or stupidest thing you ever did while working out?

Worst injury?

Advice to noobs?

I usually don't get to watch videos before I train but if I do I watch one of someone strong doing my main lift for that day. If I am going to deadlift I watch someone hit a big deadlift.

Craziest and/or stupidest thing you ever did while working out?
Craziest is probably doing about 50 sets for legs and puking halfway through and then finishing it. I think I did like every squat variation I could think of and every other crazy lift.
Stupidest would be deadlifting with bad form and hurting my lower back.

Worst injury?
Most painful would be pulling a heavy deadlift wrong and having a constant pain in my back that made it hard to walk or breathe for days. Most annoying over time is my right shoulder from bench pressing.

Advice to noobs?
Find a good program that helps you get stronger on the important lifts. Eat enough and don't sweat the little things. If you are new you are going to grow assuming you squat, dl, bench, oh press, and hit the back good. I am not saying don't train arms or calves, but don't make them the priority. Consistency is important. Don't make a schedule for 5 days a week if you are going to miss days it is better to do 3 or 4 and show up ready each time.

If you could challenge anyone to a competition, who would you pick and what lift would you choose?

I would pick a random gym idiot pumping out curls and grunting while wearing jeans and sunglasses. Then I would challenge them to a squat competition and show them exactly how weak they really are lol.

What are some of the things you learned from your recent competition? Not only from how you did but from watching what others did and how the meet was run? What would you change about how the meet was run if you were the director?

I learned if you think you are deep enough in the Squat get deeper lol. I also, learned do not warm up too early because after my last warmup set I had about 10-15 minutes until my first attempt way too long of rest for me. If I ran the meet it would have started on time that is for sure. It was supposed to start lifting at 10:15 and did not until about 11:30. Also, I would have had the white light/red light system not the thumbs up/down because other than the head judge I never even saw the thumbs down from the side judges.

Good info. I'll be sure we don't make those same mistakes at our meet in October.
