Randall Strossen has been writing the monthly sports psychology column for IRONMAN magazine since 1988, and his seminar, "Winning Ways: How To Succeed in the Gym and Out," is set for 6:30 p.m. on Friday - if you're in a rut or just looking for better results, be sure to catch this seminar.
Next, at 7:30, Nicholas Cullen-Carroll, Josh Aguirre and Sage Burgener will demonstrate the snatch and the clean and jerk, as coaches Pat Cullen-Carroll and Mike Burgener explain how Olympic-style weightlifting can give high school athletes a competitive advantage. If you are new to the snatch, and the clean and jerk, or wonder how to make them work in your school, come here for some answers.
Now it's time to make way for the big guys: Wrapping things up, at 8:15, Odd Haugen and Josh Bryant will talk about strongman and give a demonstration. Odd will be competing in the strongman event at the FitExpo, and Josh Bryant, Odd's training partner, will be competing in the powerliftering contest - lifting raw!
