We are having a National Team training camp in Colorado Springs From June 5-12. Our next step in preparing for Worlds in October. On June 12, the WTF will be announcing what system we will be using at the competition. People ask me...Tony, how do you feel about this ? What system do you think is the best? Well, like The Rock use to say " IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU THINK, JABRONI!"

It's true, it doesn't matter what you or I think. Just figure out whichever system they choose... All of these so-called "inconveniences" apply equally to one's opponent. Imagine if they raised the net a few inches on a tennis court. It would be just as high on both sides. No? There really are no excuses, we really need to adapt. The late Keith Krotish, a good friend of mine, once told me that the human body is the most adaptive organism there is. we adapt to drought, famine, pregnancy and so on... Bottom line It is what it is... If you're good you're good... Suck it up buttercup ... Train hard. Be ready for anything and adapt!!!

3 Rounds for Time:
-15-10-5 reps
-315# Deadlift
-Sprint 20 Yards
-Pull Ups.

The sprint stays the same each round, but the deadlift and pull ups go 15 in rounds 1, 10 in round 2, 5 in round 3.

Just Adapt
