    Default Wanna Bet?

    by Bill Starr

    "For a competitive athlete to continuously improve in any sport, he must test himself against others on a regular basis. Not just at contests, but in training sessions as well...The small weight room had a record board where the top lifts in all the classes were recorded plus one column for the best overall lifter according to the Hoffman formula. The bets were for cartons of milk, which could be purchased from a vending machine in the lobby of the Y for a dime."

    Thanks for the article.

    Looks like something got left out of the last paragraph on page 2: "At one session my jerks were really clicking, I eq ualed my best, 325, and was happy with that, Sid wasn’t. He encouraged me to go after nough for one night. My heart was still in my throat on my drive home."

    Yes, as usual, skipping the final check and trusting that checked a + checked b = c does not work.

    Fixed as of now. If you downloaded the article before now, get it again.
