Seattle Camp Complete! This past three days has been one of the better camps I have been involved with and one of the more fun ones for sure. I told the attendees before they left that they likely had the greatest potential of any camp. It’s true. I think the results of this camp could be huge in their competition careers.
We spent the first part of the day working on gymnastics with Elisabeth Akinwale. She is super competent and a heck of a teacher. I can barely kick into a handstand much less walk teach AND around in one like she does. Thus I spent that session doing what I do best… lifting and sitting.
Overall, the camp seemed to be really well staffed and the attendees came ready to get after it. Some of the greatest lessons we saw immediately applied was weight distribution in the foot during the Snatch and Clean, maintaining tension throughout the butterfly pullup and the muscleup, and an understanding that every lift or movement completed should be completed to apply directly to everything else. However, now that is all said and done and the dusted has settled I am ready to be back home. I love traveling and doing these camps but gosh I am ready to hold my wife. Megan got a new addition to the family and I can’t wait to see her and our new dog, Carolina. House full of girls!
Great work this weekend Seattle Campers. I pray that each of you took lots home that will benefit your training and your understanding of Outlaw. I pray that I represented Christ well for each of you. I got a good reality check today that I plan to write on tomorrow. Outlaw is great and fitness is important. However, I was reminded today that there is much greater work to do. Our bodies and our fitness will eventually fade and fail. Christ will not. Till next time…
Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”—yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.n(James 4:13-14 ESV)
