TSC La Jolla at Revolution Fitness

First of all I have to give a big shout out to Mike LoBue (head track and field strength coach and Jumps coach for San Diego State University). Mike and his lovely wife Brooke always bring a huge group of SDSU athletes and fitness nuts to join in on the TSC torture. The TSC would not be the same with out Mike and Brooke's help. And for that Yoana and I are very appreciative of all they do. Mike and guys rock!

It was fun to have Erik Blekeberg and Charlie Reid back again. These guys are true veterans of the TSC (even though they are only 22 and 23 years old) and always are the life of the party. CHEK Level 4 Robert Yang also came out to compete. Max Shank, at only 20 years old, absolutely kicked butt in his first TSC. Watch out RKC community, Max is taking the August RKC at UCLA and he will tame the BEAST, no problem!

It was a great group as usual with many first timers particiapating in the TSC. What a frickin awesome event as it truly brings out the human spirit in all of us! Congratulations to all of you who competed.

It's always motivating to see what people do during these TSC comps. You gotta do one...although the 5 min snatch test is brutal!
