>From Luke Tashie: “Add this to the 255 pr snatch, 2:00 pr on DT and a 330 pr clean this week. Good stuff Rudy…”
Luke Tashie – 305# Push Press:
>I’d like to say congratulations to my oldest client (I don’t mean age wise, but he is pretty ancient), former Outlaw coach, and now owner of Mt. Vernon CrossFit, Sean Dunston; for being invited to compete for Team USA at the Pan Am Powerlifting Championships.
Sean did his first Deadlifts with me over seven years ago and maxed out for the first time at 185#. This year at USAPL Nationals he missed his final Squat attempt to break the national record with a lift of 217.5kg (479#) @ 83kg BW. Needless to say, dude has gotten a little stronger. As far as I know, Sean will be our first National team member in a sport/discipline.
Congrats, buddy. Guess that “old man strength” is working out pretty well.

*Notes: Do not allow for any extraneous attempts/warm-up lifts. Work quickly to a heavy load, then make 3-5 maximal attempts.
