I'm taking ATP Mechanix, and can verify the pre-workout makes me actually want to work out. Just take it 20 mins before you start. Outside of ATP only creatine and coffee has done it for me.

Re: Please re-think the new Camera Policy.

If I read it correctly this is a new policy for this year and it would pretty much rule out 200mm and 300mm lenses. I shot pretty much exclusively with a budget 200mm last year. If you want to see...

You are correct, I had it wrong. I loaded it frame by frame, and the bar did not hit the weights first.

Best time of year for a competition..

Hi guys!
If you had December through May to host a small competition, when would you do it? I can think of some good times, but with the open, holidays, and regionals it could get tricky.
