Day one of the 2019 Canadian Senior Championships have wrapped up! . . It was a big day for @thedavesavage2 and @cierramm! I'm beaming with pride over the both of them right now. Dave overcame many obstacles to be here, and lifted his heart out. Today has been years in the making for Dave. Remember what I was talking about yesterday about people putting themselves on the line for a vision? He did that today. But, today has also been years in the making for Cierra. . . This was her first Nationals as a coach, which means.... That's right! We've now got two Competition Development Certified coaches at the club! One is rare. Two? Unheard of. The #justlifttakeover continues! Congratulations are due her way as this is the highest level of certification one can obtain in Canada as a Weightlifting coach, and is especially difficult to complete. . . @erikost20 and @rich.davidson did us proud, too! Erik totaled 290 at last year's event. This year? 310. 😳. 20kg in a year, at his level, is crazy! This nabbed him the Bronze in a very competitive session. Rich? He just came ready to conquer today. He's now a 2x National Champion, coming from behind with an incredible Clean and Jerk of 195kg! He totaled 15kg higher than he did last year, smashing a third attempt in dramatic fashion that eluded him just a few weeks ago in Guatemala! . . We're not done yet, however! Tomorrow it's the women's turn to shine! #teamontario🔥 😡🔥
The 2019 edition of the Canadian Senior Championships kick off tomorrow! This one is going to see many of our athletes competing. Tomorrow @thedavesavage2, @erikost20, and @rich.davidson will be representing our Men. On Sunday @_quinngyn, @oly.lifting.gal, and @julialiftsbig will be representing our Women. This time of the year is always special for me. Some folks have the winter holidays, but me? I have Nationals. . . It's the time of year I get all sentimental about how hard everyone has worked, the suffering they've endured, the discipline they've enshrined, and the risk they're taking putting themselves out there. For many who'll be participating tomorrow the last year or more has been spent ferociously working to obtain the entry total needed to grant them access to this event. Imagine? Enduring countless hours of hard training all for a few minutes to prove your worth on the platform. . . I respect everyone who puts their hands on the bar. However, there's a special place in my heart for those who are willing to devote themselves to the neverending process of mastering themselves to lift at this level. A devotion to excellence; the character it both exposes and builds along the way is what I love about sport. Tomorrow isn't just a competition. . . It's a celebration of the heights people can reach when they put their Wills to the test, and force themselves to be more than they were the day before. To all of the athletes lifting tomorrow... Good luck/Bonne Chance! You're what make this sport an honor to be a part of!
It's Victoria Day this Monday, the 20th. We'll be open from 10am - 1pm, running with an Open Gym format. Come and get some lifting in with all your training pals!
Normally by this time of year everyone is beat to shit and begging for the offseason. But, for whatever reason, the club has been had a whole lot of big lifts go down in the last few weeks! Here are some highlights. Athletes featured include: @rich.davidson, @julialiftsbig, @oly.lifting.gal, @mark.m.a, and @moormanlifter. . Honestly, I have no idea why this is happening. Three of the folks be noted here have nationals at the end of the week, but another two don't. Must be something special about the programs. 😁 . Nah, in all seriousness, programs matter... A lot. However, a program is only as good as the effort the athlete puts in. Our team members have been putting in work, and it shows!
Just do it. Nike got it right. How many times have you approached a heavy bar and felt like your mind was drowning in cues? I know that was one of the first things I had to navigate as a new lifter: when to think and when to do. ⠀ 🔹🔹🔹⠀ If you're coached (or self-coached) it's important to organize your state of mind to best apply the feedback you're getting. Most of us get technical advice shortly after the last set we did. So, when do we apply those observations? Definitely not once the bar's in our hands, that's for sure! Here's what I do:⠀ 🔹🔹🔹⠀ ✔️ Listen to my coach's comments. If the lift was recorded I review it in the context of the feedback I just got. ⠀ . ✔️ Make sure I actually understand the cue and what's happening. Don't be afraid to ask your coach if you don't understand their cue either! I promise you your coach isn't going to be irritated. Remember: their job is to get you better! . ✔️While I'm resting I think about the cue. I try to imagine what it feels like, what it looks like, and how I'm going to apply it. Note that I said: while I'm resting. This is crucial. You're not going to be able to apply your cues mid-lift. When you're lifting your brain's busy processing the needs of the movement. For instance, imagine trying to figure out your taxes in your head while mountain biking down a rocky hill. You're probably gonna have a bad time, right? Lifting is no different.⠀ . ✔️Approach the bar, clear your head, and just lift. It's that simple. That's why we practice, so that your body knows what to do. Accept the fact that you're not going to get everything right, and just do your best. Just think about what you want to do⠀ 🔹🔹🔹⠀ There's method to everything, even thinking! The next time you approach a bar clear your head, get set, and go!⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
You train long enough and eventually you get to experience technical breakthroughs in your lifting. @mediocrelifter had one of those days last night where everything finally clicked, and he smoked some numbers that had previously been taunting him. ⠀ 🔹🔹🔹⠀ First up is his Snatch. 100kg has eluded him for the better part of a year. Last night? We didn't even attempt 100. He went 95-98-102(PR)-104(PR). ⠀ 🔹🔹🔹⠀ That first 130 I'm showing here? He couldn't pull the bar; the bar pulled him. But not last night! I decided after his Snatching that I wanted to apply the same cue to his Cleans. I was not expecting another record. I just wanted to work technique. However, after working up in some doubles it was clear that he had a very strong max in him yet to come. So we went up! I thought small jump; go from 125 to 128. Nope. Nick made up his mind and crushed 130 on the first try. ⠀ 🔹🔹🔹⠀ So what was the cue I gave him? Rip the bar off of the floor. You see, normally we want control up to just below the knee with the major acceleration initiating as the bar passes it. Not everyone can do this, though (I'm one of them), and have enough speed to effectively propel the bar upwards. They need to build acceleration as soon as possible. I don't often teach this technique because people tend to move too quickly and lose position. Evidently it's not a bad idea for Nick, however.⠀ 🔹🔹🔹⠀ I've gotta say... I'm really proud of this guy (and you can probably tell in my reactions!). He's worked diligently and without complaint (mostly 🤗) for two seasons now. Nothing makes me happier as a coach than seeing someone put their heart into the game and come out with a win. ⠀ 🔹🔹🔹⠀ Get ready Nick. Your ticket to ride the gain train has been punched!
Address your imbalances by... Being imbalanced? Some of my favorite exercises for building symmetrical strength are via lifts that you're probably familiar with... Just loaded asymmetrically! . ✔️Offset DB/KB Rows - grab yourself a pair of KBs or DBs that have anywhere from a 5-10kg difference, get set as you normally would and row! . ✔️ One-Arm Lateral KB Swing - set your feet apart so that they're diagonal and swing away from you. These are fantastic for keeping your hips/SI/low-back healthy. As lifters we work almost exclusively in a vertical plane of movement. Don't neglect rotation (like I did last year!) and end up broken. Rotating is a normal part of human movement and should be trained. . ✔️Offset Romanian Deadlift - load a bar with a 5-10kg plate on one side and leave the other empty. Execute the lift as you normally would an RDL and listen to your obliques cry in confusion. Don't be surprised if one side feels twice as heavy as the other. As you can see I'm struggling to move evenly here... Even though I can Deadlift 320kg more than this.... . ❗The way you get the most out of these exercises is by trying to perform them as though you were doing their usual variants. Keep your core tight, and resist the uneven load. Your core and glutes will feel a very new stimulus! Give these a try and let me know what you think!
Nerves. Anxiety. That sinking feeling in your chest. We all get that dreaded sensation in the time preceding an important event we need to perform at, be it lifting or, say, a hard conversation. How do we avoid that feeling? Simple. We don't. 🔹🔹🔹 When I was a lifter I'd feel those nerves just like everyone else. When I became a coach, however, it was different. I started feeling them before every single session in a day! What can I say? I'm empathetic. I care about how everyone does. The frequency of that feeling quickly taught me something, though.... 🔹🔹🔹 Nervousness, anxiety, apprehension... These are just words we attach to a feeling that is otherwise nebulous before we identify it. Before you name that sensation it's just excitement. It only becomes anxiety once you begin to describe and define it as such. 🔹🔹🔹 Over time I've learned to simply define this feeling as vigilance. I've got a job to do that requires that my mind and body be synchronized. My athletes need me to be able to communicate the day's strategy, to time their warm-up, and make tactical decisions under pressure as the event unfolds. In that case there'd be something wrong with me if I wasn't amped up! 🔹🔹🔹 Embrace that energy because the more you fight it the more it's going to transform itself into anxiety or fear. Your senses are heightened so that you can be a lifting machine. That Fight or Flight response will be present whether you like it or not. Choose Fight. This is the key that differentiates the gym athlete from the competition athlete. Which one do you wanna be?
Pan Ams 2019 were a blast! #teamcanada crushed it, taking home a collection of Bronze medals! Here are some highlights: 🔹🔹🔹 @m_charron28 and @kristelngarlem had some of the most intense sessions that I have ever witnessed. The battling in the W64 and W76 classes exemplified just how exciting this sport can truly be, where single kilos matter. The difference between Gold, Silver, and Bronze were defined by strong tactics in attempt selection, and limit performances by the athletes. Honestly, among the top five in both of these categories there were no losers. Everyone lifted like they wanted to win. 🔹🔹🔹 @boady_champ, @m_charron28, @rachelleblancbazinet, and @talidarsigny qualified for The Pan American Games this July! Canada will be sending an exceptional team of lifters to Lima! 🔹🔹🔹 For my fellow #teamontario folks our athletes put on a strong showing! @lifeinkg set an international PR in her Clean and Jerk with 97kg! @boady_champ is back in business, putting on a great performance with 169/201. Our club's own, @rich.davidson, came through in his first international competition! I couldn't be prouder of this guy right now as we've had our eyes set on this meet since we began working together. 🔹🔹🔹 I want to thank my fellow coaches @firstpull, @ijs_89, @dalassantavy, and @yvandarsigny for being so great to work with. It's always a privilege to be a part of the coaching team and to work with such exceptional individuals at these events. Lastly, I also want to thank the athletes for putting in the months of work that they do for just a few minutes on the platform. The men and women of this team all put in an extraordinary effort to represent our nation at these events. They deserve nothing but praise. See all of you soon in Quebec!
With Nationals being just a few weeks away I thought that this was a good time to write about peaking! If you're training for this meet, then, it's probably one of, if not your major peak of the year. And when you're a few weeks out? How do I say this... Your feelings are valid... but probably stupid. Before you call me out allow me to elaborate! 😁 🔹🔹🔹 ☑️16 Weeks Out: I'm so pumped for this competition! I'm gonna lift all the weights and put up my best total ever! ☑️8 Weeks Out: I'm getting excited! I'm deep in my training cycle, and I feel like I'm getting stronger. ☑️4 Weeks Out: Maaaaan... I don't even know if I care anymore. My body's wrecked. The bar's an asshole, and everything hurts... Do I really wanna do this? 🔹🔹🔹 Sound familiar? Nationals or not, every big training cycle I've ever put an athlete through also includes a free trip to the Valley of Sorrow. The further out the athlete is the fresher they feel. The more distant the competition the more room the imagination has to be ambitious... Except the longer you train the more fatigued you get. The weights get heavier. The workouts become more draining while your mind is increasingly worn. The pressure? That's just been snowballing every week. Put that all together and you have a recipe for a war within. Here's what you need to remember.... You're supposed to feel this way! 🔹🔹🔹 Training is about adaptation. Remember how ominous Natural Selection and survival of the fittest sounded in High School biology? Seriously, without getting too deep into Seyle's theory of General Adaptation Syndrome you should know that there's literally a phase called the alarm stage. Doesn't sound warm and fuzzy, does it? Take a guess as to what stage you're in 3-4 weeks out? 🤗 🔹🔹🔹 Be passionate about the long-term, but ambivalent about what's in front of you. If you're a competitor, then, you've been here before. I know, I know... This time is different. No it's not! That's your ego being desperate. You had to be excellent at this to qualify in the first place! You're still awesome. You just don't feel it right now, and that's okay. That's what Coach is here to remind you of!

First in the Snatch🥇 and third 🥉 in Europe as a W81kg for @anna_van_bellinghen today. Not too bad! We had an extremely competitive session, easily one of the most competitive I've ever been a part of. 🔹🔹🔹🔹 Snatches went great, seeing Anna go 3/3, finishing at 103kg. If she had a fourth attempt I'm sure 105kg was there. 🔹🔹🔹🔹 Clean and Jerk? We didn't have the day we wanted, but that's Weightlifting. Anna made her opener at 119kg, but missed 121kg twice (which may have secured us Gold). We knew going into this that the Jerk was a sore spot. However, all that means is we still have something to work on! 🔹🔹🔹🔹 In the end? This is Anna's best result in international competition. And.... European Champion in the Snatch for 2019! Can't be disappointed in that! 🔹🔹🔹🔹 I'd like to thank @tomgoegebuer for allowing me to work along side him as well as the Belgian Weightlifting Federation for having me. Thanks to @brusselsweightlifting for trusting me with their boss, and @genotrittweger for handling all of my travel arrangements (which were a nightmare!). Next up: Guatemala!
Why do Block work? We do a lot of variations in our training, and lifting from blocks is one of our favorite ways to vary a lift. Here's why: ✔️ You can work on building speed/power in a specific position. Some people are strong, but lack the ability to effectively accelerate the bar between the knee and power positions. Start someone from a dead stop where they're slow, and they'll learn to be faster! ✔️ Fatigue. For more advanced (read: efficient) athletes frequent training from the floor or hang can beat up the low back. Blocks allow us to shorten the range of motion, reducing the work that the lower back musculature needs to perform to keep the bar in the right spot. This allows us to put more bars over our heads without taking on more stress than we need to. Likewise, you can do a lot more heavy Pulls with a reduced range of motion than you could from the floor or hang without impacting recovery too much. ✔️ Similar to our first point, blocks can be used to teach or strengthen a specific segment of the lift. Some folks can't even set their backs well off of the floor when they start lifting. Blocks can provide a progressive means of teaching the Snatch and Clean. ✔️ Novelty. Like I said earlier, we vary our lifts a lot, especially in preparation phases. This serves to keep training fresh, adaptive stimuli novel, mitigates overuse risks, and allows our athletes to constantly make progress in their lifts. I know, I know... Conjugate approaches are no longer en vogue, but our results speak for themselves!
Three National Champions (M105, M105+, and W90) in the same spot! 🔹🔹🔹🔹 Our pal, @mikebencsik, came all the way from BC to Ottawa this past week to meet with our Minister of Sports, Kirsty Duncan, to discuss the needs of Canada's athletes from the perspective of a Weightlifter. Of course he had to pop by to get some lifting in! 🔹🔹🔹🔹 Last night was a great session. You know what happens when you get a bunch of excited lifters/meatheads together, right? What was supposed to be a light day for him turned into an impromptu max out session. Mike did a Clean and Jerk complex with 180kg for a 3kg PR! It just goes to show how important having the right environment is to pushing past your limits. 🔹🔹🔹🔹 It's always a pleasure having athletes like Mike pop by the club, and it's even cooler having friends from around the nation that push one another to be their best. We'll see you soon in Quebec at Nationals, Mike!
After I got back from Vegas I knew that I wanted my training to be about movement, and skill rather than weight. I hit my goals. So, last night, I officially joined our Oly 1 class! 🔹🔹🔹🔹 Everyone I told about this in advance thought it was funny. I suppose when you're an internationally-qualified coach of the sport, and have had 300kg on your back that joining an intro class does seem funny. Laughs aside, I don't know if I've ever enjoyed Olympic Weightlifting like I did last night! I know. That sounds ridiculous given that we cater to mostly recreational lifters, but listen... 🔹🔹🔹🔹 I took the NCCP seminar back in 2009 with zero Snatch/Clean and Jerk experience because I wanted to learn the lifts. I realized immediately that a seminar wasn't gonna cut it; I had to train. I joined the club the seminar was held at, and before my first workout ever began I was asked if I wanted to compete at a meet in the next six weeks. You might as well say that was the beginning of my career. 🔹🔹🔹🔹 The point is that, despite helping many people learn the lifts for fun I've never actually experienced them that way myself. I was either training to compete and meet my coach's expectations or, on the flip side, training hard to be a better coach myself. I've only ever lifted to hit benchmarks, to put up elite numbers, or to get a sense of what I'd have to put our athletes through to be competitive at the highest levels. I'm not sure if I ever gave myself the opportunity to just be, to enjoy feeling the movements for what they are. 🔹🔹🔹🔹 For the last decade lifting has only ever been a mission for me, and it's honestly a shame because I actually can't remember the last time I had fun in sport the way I did last night. As a coach I've seen numerous people become frustrated chasing numbers, expecting that they should be at a certain point in their development when they're not. There's no timeline. The irony of it all is that without external pressure I probably lifted with the best technique I ever had. 🔹🔹🔹🔹 You wanna get good? Allow yourself to have fun! I'm pumped to keep taking these classes!
Yesterday was the Ontario Senior Provincial Championships, and boy, what a day it was! JustLift athletes took 6 Gold 🥇, 2 Silver🥈, and 3 Bronze 🥉medals! On top of that we won the Ontario Seniors Team Champions award for this past season! 🏆🏆🏆🏆 This is a huge turning point for the club. We've worked hard steadily for more than half a decade in an effort to develop the best Weightlifters we can. It's an indescribable feeling to see the team's development result in so many medals and an award such as the team trophy! There was a time that I could only imagine our athletes reaching this height... And yet here we are! 🏆🏆🏆🏆 No one ever did anything great by themselves, and this outcome exemplifies that maxim. This might be a sport that rewards individual performances, but it takes a team effort to produce success. With that in mind I'd like to thank... Well, everyone! 🏆🏆🏆🏆 I want to thank both the past and present members of our club. I want to thank the @onweightlifting association for providing us a means to practice our sport. I want to thank all of the coaches and athletes that make up the #onweightlifting community. I want to thank all of the volunteers who put in countless hours to ensuring that these events are possible. I want to thank our coaches @cierramm, @moormanlifter, @julialiftsbig for their assistance in leading the team to its finest moment yet. And, finally, I want to thank each athlete on our team for having confidence in us. Your loyalty is what allows us to not just be good, but to aspire to be great. Everyone at the club from the beginners to recreational all the way to the High Performance team have been a part of this. This is just the beginning!
#tbt to last year's Ontario Provincial Championships with my favorite team! Last year we had a team of 6 athletes competing. This year? We have 14! Since we're two days out from 2019's edition I thought I'd reflect on my beginnings. 🔹🔹🔹🔹 The first provincial championship we ever went to as Team JustLift was in 2013. It was my first meet as a coach. I was hungry to prove myself, however, the truth was that I only had a faint idea of what I was doing. I'd been to small meets as a lifter, refereed a bit, and organized 2012's Provincial Championships (organized meaning @moiralassen saved me from looking like an idiot). I'd never coached a competition or, for that matter, even really developed an athlete. At the time I only really knew two things: 🔹🔹🔹🔹 1️⃣ This sport is hard enough to learn never mind being competitive at it. Athletes deserve the best coaching possible. 2️⃣ Being a part of this sport, as a coach, meant more to me than anything I'd ever done previously in my life. 🔹🔹🔹🔹 For these reasons I knew that I had to be the best I could be. That I could never stop learning, refining, or playing a part in developing the sport locally. I knew what the athletes were getting into, the struggles they'd face because, in part, they mirrored my own as a coach. Every year that we go into this competition I remind myself that this may very well be the most meaningful period of my life. That unwillingness to let people down comes from knowing that, for at least some of our competitors, the same is true of their athletic careers; that it matters. 🔹🔹🔹🔹 I'll be honest. I'm not sure what I'm trying to say. But I know who I want to reach. To all the struggling athletes and coaches out there? Keep striving. Dive headfirst into the pandemonium of your pursuit. The truth is that there's no victory without strife. No accomplishment without failure. No reward without risk. Sometimes it's not what you can gain, but what you can lose. Being a decorated coach? That kind of matters to me. Letting the athletes down? Never. Finding the element at stake that mattered most is why I keep pushing. Find yours. It just might change your life! #iamjustlift
Snatches, Cleans, and Pulls from a deficit are among my favorite classic lift variations for more advanced athletes. In fact, I think deficit work is an extremely undervalued means of building the lifts. Here's why. 🔹🔹🔹🔹 They increase the length of the first pull. As a coach one of the primary reasons I see athletes miss heavy Snatches/Cleans is due to the timing change once they're past the 90% range. If the lifter is reasonably efficient relative to their absolute strength, then, the timing of the second pull changes slightly simply because it takes longer to bring the bar to the power position. Deficit variations prepare the athlete to be patient and stay over the bar rather than panicking and pulling early. 🔹🔹🔹🔹 Deficit work can assist the athlete in becoming stronger off of the floor. Because the bar starts at a greater vertical distance relative to the hip it is harder to move the bar off. This position biases the quads in particular, the exact muscles we need to develop for heavy attempts. You know what else that builds? Confidence. The easier a bar feels off of the floor the better. 🔹🔹🔹🔹 As a learning tool deficit work teaches the athlete how to deliberately push through the legs. I've said it before, but it's worth repeating. I think it's more effective to teach the lifts as a push rather than a pull. While it's not actually this simple biomechanically, it's useful to think of the pulling muscles (lats, low back, etc.) as mostly being there to keep the bar in the right spot when executing the lifts. 🔹🔹🔹🔹 A few caveats: ☑️If your start position isn't consistent yet, then, this exercise has the possibility of worsening the issue. ☑️They require the athlete to have adequate amounts of ankle/hip mobility. Otherwise their start position won't resemble their competition lift setup closely enough. ☑️Your deficit doesn't need to be anymore than 1-2. Any higher than that and it becomes a different lift. 🔹🔹🔹🔹 Give these a try! If you've got questions about how to program them or need help troubleshooting please leave a comment!
We've been working at a distance with @erikost20 for about 9 months now. Watch the first clip, then, swipe left and view the second. The weight's the same, but what a difference he's made to his lifting! Just look at his Snatches now, and what they were a year ago! It took addressing a number of issues to get to this point. 🔹🔹🔹🔹 ☑️Improving his mobility in the upper-back and ankles. ☑️Technique fixes for both his Snatch and Clean. ☑️Increasing his leg strength. We took his Back Squat from 210 to 230kg, and his Front Squat from 180 to 200kg in just a few months. 🔹🔹🔹🔹 At last year's National Championships he totaled 292kg. In 8 months he put 18kg on his total, finishing with 310kg at this past year's Winterlift. But, this wasn't all on our part. Training at a distance requires a lot of discipline and grit on the athlete's side. 🔹🔹🔹🔹 Erik has never been anything less than diligent about providing us with feedback on his training, what weights he's hit, what he had trouble with, and so on. He also knows when to back off, when to push, and when to grind. We got to this point through good communication, realistic goal setting, and the discipline to stay the course. Because of this we're now able to choose his exercises and weights intelligently each workout. We have a broad understanding of how he responds to training as well as what strategies work best for him. 🔹🔹🔹🔹 Given what we've accomplished in less than a year we're absolutely stoked at to see what he's capable of as we continue! Big things are in-store for this guy, so keep your eye on him! #justlifttakeover #iamjustlift
We time our development with the season. As Ontario's Weightlifting season is quickly approaching its end it's time for our athletes to realize some of the fruits of their labor. Our recent heavy sessions have been absolutely electric! Here's just a handful of the big lifts the team has been putting together. 🔹🔹🔹 First up is @mark.m.a. After finally getting him healthy, strong in the right places, and cleaning up his technique he's only just begun to unlock his potential. Here's a 120kg Snatch that's been a long time coming.! 🔹🔹🔹 @scaredlittleboi has also recently ditched the injury train. 9 months ago a 60kg Back Squat was a tall order. Now he's Snatching in the 100s regularly! 🔹🔹🔹 Big Rig @rich.davidson has been having a helluva season, having recently doubled his openers from last year's National Championship. Big things are in-store for this guy... Like last Saturday's 250kg Front Squat. 😳 🔹🔹🔹 @oly.lifting.gal is still the champ for guts when it comes to getting under a heavy bar. She Cleaned 100kg from Blocks last Friday... after six previous workouts. 🔹🔹🔹 @julialiftsbig continues to lift... well, big. Earlier last week I told her that I thought she could Clean 115kg from the knee... So she did... and then did 120kg! 🔹🔹🔹 Finally, we've got @samanthakane_94. Last Friday she had the sort of night we've been working all season for. She beat her previous Clean and Jerk record by 6kg with this 99kg Clean and Jerk!
We've been having a blast hosting this week's Women's Training Camp in preparation for the Ontario Provincial Championships! It's been a fantastic experience for @julialiftsbig, @cierramm, and @oly.lifting.gal and myself getting to work with so many people that we regularly see in competition. Maybe we need to do more of these in the future!? 😁 #Repost @alphaabbie (@get_repost) ・・・ When you get train in the presence of greatness you can see the possibilities unfold.
