    If you're lucky, there are people who come along that you meet once and it seems like youíve known them all your life. Mike and Donna Manning along with JB and Cathy Brown are one of these people. Coming back to Melbourne cemented H2C as the Florida location for our seminars. Their continued support of Starting Strength and their established position at LongDoggers makes it easy to look forward to our next visit. They also happen to have one of the coolest dogs, Bosko, on the planet. Thanks so very much guys! Best of luck next weekend at your meet Mike, let us know how things go.

    This weekend highlighted the fact that even though we no longer run these seminars through Crossfit, we continue to meet some of the most amazing people who own or train out of Crossfit gyms. Michelle, who qualified as an alternate for the upcoming Regionalís for the Crossfit games realized that increased strength is going to help her improve on many of her bodyweight exercises should she have the opportunity to compete. She also is considering hitting a local weightlifting meet and is already feeling better bringing her bodyweight back to what she was as a college Volleyball player and staying away from a starvation diet. She gave me an update tonight that her first novice training session today went well!! That, along with her talent at riding the Dervish makes her one, cool, chick!

    As Iíve stated before, itís always a pleasure to see familiar faces and have folks in the group whoíve previously attended the Basic Barbell Seminar. We were able to see Staceyís MUCH improved coaching style and benefit from ACís experience as a competitive Power lifter and coach of an impressive barbell crew at Georgia Southern. They were both considerably stronger in their understanding and teachings of the methods we used all weekend than their first seminars they attended and they happen to be two very good dudes who you should call if you are in the Knoxville or Statesboro area and in need of good coaching.

    There were also some who were very new to barbell training and clearly much stronger than they thought they were (Damion) and can clearly benefit from the program even if theyíve missed out by training effectively in their 20ís and 30ís (I probably shouldnít name names-Dan-so Iíll try not to.) Iím looking forward to reading comments from yous guys and weíd love to see some pictures. As always, keep us posted on your lifting and coaching progress along with any meets you have coming up. We know AC will be hitting Junior Nationals this summer, who else has upcoming events?

    First, I want to thank Mike, Donna, JB and Cathy for hosting the seminar. Their hospitality and friendliness made for an awesome visit. Theyíve got their shit together, as well. If Iím ever in Florida again, I wonít hesitate paying them a visit. Great folk, good facility.

    I want to thank Rip, Stef, Juli and Brian for first-rate instruction and feedback on our coaching. This marks the second time that Iíve trained with Rip and his crew, and I count them among my friends.

    The Starting Strength Seminar is an improvement over what was an already superior seminar. I took the Basic Barbell seminar under Rip in í08, and the expanded format, which includes an even more in-depth biomechanical analysis of the lifts, increased platform time and an expanded lecture on programming, is well worth the experience for those of you who took Ripís Crossfit certification and might still be wondering ďIs it worth it?Ē It is. Whether your desire is to improve your lifting or learn to become a better coach, there is no better seminar out there. Iíve taken a number of ďpersonal trainerĒ certifications over the years, and Iíve learned more from Ripís seminars than from any of those. This, folks, is how itís done. Come ready to question and to learn.

    Instruction like this deserves your support.

    Cheers,
    Stacey

    P.S. Thanks for the kind words, Juli. You and Stef are excellent mentors.
