Why I love sports...

 

(I know, it's a selfish plug, but it is a great underdog story!)

 

Earlier in the year, the Cal baseball team received the news that the university was cutting 108 year old baseball program due to budget restrictions. As a former Cal baseball player, I was heartbroken. I could only imagine what the current players were going through. They never gave up hope. They raised almost $15 million to reinstate the program, which they successfully accomplished. 

Unfortunately, in the process, a few star players transfered to other schools. They lost out on a big recruiting class. Just like any great underdog story, none of this seemed to matter. No one told them they weren't supposed to win. They pulled off a victory tonight, and as a result, are advancing to the College World Series!!!!

It was so much fun being there tonight! GO BEARS!!!

Workout for Tomorrow:

 

This week is Snatch week....everyday we will do some type of snatch


 

We will be performing the Hang Squat Snatch. This is a useful tool to learn how to get under the bar. In addition, many of you get messed up when starting from the floor....tomorrow we will start higher to hopefully get a few of you to understand the 2nd and 3rd pulls. More on that tomorrow!

Hang Squat Snatch  95#'s

This should be a fast intense workout!
