Those poor plates…

We have an epidemic lately of 10# & 15# plates splitting in half, so we’re kicking off the new SAVE THE BUMPERS awareness campaign, immediately.
I KNOW taking weight overhead gets heavy. But from now on, no matter how fatigued you are, when your barbell is loaded with only 10# or 15# bumper plates, please escort it back to the ground.
Do not drop it from overhead and leave that poor bumper plate to fend for itself against the mean ole hard floor.
Then your coach has to take the pieces of that poor plate and put them in Lis’s office. And then Lis comes in and stumbles over it, almost breaking her neck, only to realize yet another of her beloved bumper plates has gone to an early grave.
Bless their little bumper hearts.

Congrats to Marvin who got his muscle up Wednesday night after a mere five minutes of prep with Coach Raul. Get it!
