You know this sport is beautiful.
It really is. Yesterday squat day for me, it was tough. I am getting ready for the USAPL National Masters. My training partner is out of town. I had an APF/WPO judge, a spotter who lifts in the INSA, another USAPL, and another retired lifter who was a former APF champion. They all helped, and encouraged me. Even comforted me over the passing away of my sister last week.
Today bench day same type of thing. The help and encouragement of the powerlifters is great to see. We all helped one another even though the group was getting ready for 3 different meets.
No poor sportsmanship, no back biting, no slamming of orgs. Just exemplified what sports is all about. Hey I am 55 and guys 20 years and more younger than me are helping this old guy and I help them. Man if the so called pro sports would only learn.
