Let the GAINS begin
Thanks to Mark, the owner at Back to the Basics in Towson, MD, for welcoming everyone from the Dumbarton Barbell Club who found themselves displaced in 2016
Let the GAINS begin
It's official. Most of the Dumbarton Barbell Club that were displaced in 2016 have joined Back to the Basics in Towson, MD. I am coaching there on weekends and weekday evenings. Sign up for a One on One Coaching session to get the best tips for your Olympic Lifts.
Motivation + Habit = Success
Motivation is what gets you started
Habit is what keeps you going
It's finally official. We were told a few weeks ago that the gym was closing on June 13, 2016, and it did.
Your workouts should last no more than an hour, which includes warm up. Research shows that your testosterone increases naturally once you begin working out and decreases after 45 minutes. So lifting over 45 minutes will in effect produce less testosterone and more cortisol, which increases body fat storage, not our intent. So do yourself a favor and keep your workouts short and productive. Be strong.
Michael Choi is hosting a contest next Sunday at:
2504 Oakville St.

Lifting begins at 8am...see you then
It brings me no joy to tell the weightlifting community about the passing of Glenn Souders, our MD LWC President from 1980 - 1990. I remember Glenn as the middle weight record holder in the snatch, the local meet promoter and all round nice guy. Glenn retired 12 years ago at the age of 53. He would still workout with his training partner Mike Foley until Wednesday morning. Each workout began on his stationary bike before working out. That was the last thing he did. RIP my friend.

The gym was going to close for school renovations on April 1, 2016, however, the date has changed yet again. So until further notice, we are not announcing the closing of the gym because it may not happen. Come train at the gym that you have loved for years.
