I have been blessed to learn from some of the best. Just to name a few, Jesse Kellum, August Clark, Garry Frank, Scot Mendelson(F-I-T), Jack Reape(one of the best squatters That don't get any recognition), Santa Barbara Barbell Crew, Jeff McVicker, Brent Mikesell. Even Ed Coan
and Louie Simmons let me pick theyre brains.
I have some that I have been coaching that will raise some eyebrows very soon. So, look for the Nemesis crew. They arent hard to spot. Cuz, they are usually the loudest in the room. Lol
Looking forward to a good year.
