• August?

    Didn’t it seem like Summer lasted forever when you were a kid?
    Well, don’t let Summer get away from you. Get to the beach.
    Murph Beach.

    It’s open.
    Use it.

    Grab a lawn chair, a cooler and some sunblock and go outside and get JACKED.

    We think we have the plate storage situation worked out to prevent the junkie maggots form stealing them. And yes, we are pretty sure we know who did it and even are getting their pictures.
    Catching them is a different story.

    Anyway, if you want to go to the beach, it’s easy.

    Stop at the Front Desk, give them your driver’s license and we will give you the key to the weight storage.
    When you’re done, just lock them all up and bring the key back.

    Make sure you tag us if you post any Murph Beach training footage/pics.
    Murph Beach is also a location on the Instagrams and Facebooks. Use it!

    Lot’s more to read below.
    Please read, share and act on the information here.
    Now let’s vamo a la playa.
    (That’s all I remember from high school Spanish).
    Vinceri vel Mori

    A soft, easy life is not worth living, if it impairs the fibre of brain and heart and muscle. We must dare to be great; and we must realize that greatness is the fruit of toil and sacrifice and high courage… For us is the life of action, of strenuous performance of duty; let us live in the harness, striving mightily; let us rather run the risk of wearing out than rusting out.”
    Theodore Roosevelt

    The Kraken Files Goal Based Training

    Steph is blowing shit up again this month.
    The funny thing is that besides the fact that this is a really good article, Kevin and I discussed many of the same topics recently and agree 100% much of this.
    We were discussing a semi famous Internet coach who bashes lots of people and claims that lifters can only do the classic lifts while saying further that variations and accommodating resistance do not work. He is simply showing is ignorance but people believe this bullshit.

    Anyway, here is Stephs’ brilliant rant:


    Too often online I see people making reference to the absurdity of using certain equipment (omg, how dare anyone call themselves an athlete and use a Smith machine, or post leg press vids…..resistance bands for deadlifts?!
    How silly!

    Member Minutes:

    The Member Minutes section is the place to let us tell the world about how AWESOME TPS members are. I can’t do this unless you tell me about your accomplishments. When TPS first started, I knew EVERY member and I knew what was going on. We have GROWN and, sadly, I don’t know every member. The interweb can fix this. Shoot me an email and let me know about your latest event, whether it is an upcoming event or something you have completed—5K’s, triathlons, powerlifting, or anything sports-related. We want to let the world know. Now, on to this month’s accomplishments:

    Danielle Bond just killed it!
    On July 22nd, former TPS coach, and current Team TPS lifter, Danielle Bond competed in her first USAPL meet.

    Check out the Member Minutes Page to see how she did.
