Bearer of Bad News

By Marcus | In Competition, Events and Announcements, Psychology | on October 28, 2010

Although Ruth may claim otherwise, I hate to be the bearer of bad news. Today I have to tell those of you that planned on competing in the next NLP Invitational that the slots have filled up and they have started waiting lists for those interested. Yes, in less than a week they had so much demand they filled all 200 available slots. For those of you that are so inclined, get on the waiting lists as soon as possible since they plan to pull from there on a first-come, first-served basis.

As for the rest of you, are there competitions or other contests you plan to enter? We will be seeing Ruth, Sean and Avelyne compete in an Olympic meet this weekend and last month most of you were exposed to that level of scrutiny on form for the first time. Does the prospect of performing those lifts against others in your weight class grab your interest? We’ve posted a couple of times now about goal setting and I’d like to get a formal list in the gym so we trainers can help you on your way. Some of you listed goals on Sean’s post (below), how much closer are you now? Have you achieved them already and if so, what’s your next step?

    Yay! I should have waited 20 min for the email that said I’ve been wait listed. I’m going to sacrifice a small woodland animal and start going to church to get us all in the competition.

    Depending on your objective I think Bad Beer Pong Play = Good for Beer Pong Player
