Emphatic 3rd attempt make by @4derrick in a sweet singlet. #americanopen #ao2013
The elite men at the #polevaultsummit should be taking notes on the #singlets in @USA_weightlifting. #sostylish.
Me: do they make those pants in men’s sizes?
@pastradul: no. They’re large women’s pants.
Either he likes em tight or there are some large ladies out there. #stylish

Really subtle floor mat, @iamthetoge.
Last night I crashed in the home of the 2012 #americanopen m69k champion, tonight I stayed in a #crossfitgames athletes’ place. In the company of greatness! (Please let some of it transfer into me!)
So many thanks to the friends who open their doors and homes to traveling athletes!
A little #recap from the #americanopen!
I went 2/6 making only my opening attempt in each lift. That was 65kilos for the #snatch and 85kilos for the #cleanandjerk. Both were under my #PRs. I’ll post video of the misses later… I was well under the numbers I qualified with, but I learned a lot about what it means to be in the mix in #weightlifting meet! Lots of waiting/timing lifts and the fire/frustration of missing big lifts!
Big congrats to Candice Ruiz who won our section and thanks to Teresa for posting the picture of introductions and @oreillycolm for the sweet video of my lifts. He flew #thousands of miles just to take #iPad videos of me and to sometimes change the weights on my warm up bar.
And thanks as always to my coach @spencergarnold for helping through a tough meet! He competes tomorrow as well and I know it was a lot for him to spend time on me! #appreciate!
Good luck to everyone else competing this weekend including #TeamOutlaw!

Update and #tbt! My lifting time has been pushed earlier by 7.5hrs! I now lift in the 63C session at 10:30am! You can catch the live feed here: http://www.teamusa.org/usa-weightlifting/LIVE
Thanks to @hookgrip for the pics from the 2012#AmericanOpen. Can’t wait to see what magic he captures this year!
I had a great prep day today… Made it to Dallas before the ice storm, got in a shakeout and quick lift session at @cfdeep. Great dinner with @spencergarnold, @meganiarnold, and @sb_phillips!
Time to get to bed and rest up before weigh-ins at 8:30AM! I hope my tan has developed by then!
We all prepare for competition with different strategies.
@spencergarnold #americanopen #weightcut #faketan same thing right?
At least someone in this family is maintaining their color. Sun goddess #CoraGirl. (at crossfit central downtown)
Blended fruit as a meal.
Pretty sure I had a #JambaJuice after every summer water polo practice in high school. #sugarhigh #postworkoutcarbs #wheremyproteinma? (at Gate 18)
Grandma and grandpa got a new DVD player. We stocked them up with a few movies to get them started. Lonesome Dove and Casablanca drew the most approval. #robertduval #ingridbergman #classics #westerns #guns #periodpieces #movies #downtonabbey (at Cold Brook Road)
