Congrats to Katelin Gildersleeve and David Fox for great races today at the largest 2-day regatta in the world. Drawing over 225,000 visitors to Boston, and contributing over $72 million to the local economy, the Head of the Charles is sort of a big deal. 
Katelin won the Women's Youth Single and David bested some big name crews for Boston University in the prestigious Men's Championship Eights. 
I can take no credit for either athlete's success. I simply witnessed these two outwork everyone else. If you are eating and sleeping enough, the only other variable that matters is how hard you work. There's no shortcut. You can argue what is optimal or efficient, but it just comes down to hard work in the end.

These pads...
I bought these pads to deadlift off of as some of my athletes are pulling heavy enough off the floor for sound and vibration to be a concern. 
The trouble is that they change so much about the pull that we don't use them. 
First, your deadlift becomes a rack pull because the bar starts significantly higher off the floor. 
Second, the first few inches of the lift feel light as the foam rebounds. You are several inches off the floor before you get the full weight.
I'd consider it for Olympic lifts, but it isn't worth the negatives for the deadlift.

Our next "I'm going to learn you a lesson" is on the S/R/A Cycle. 
Once a week, I spend 5-10 minutes telling my athletes something I think they should know. The folks at @barbell_logic posted a great video on this topic yesterday. I covered that topic with the team earlier this year and it was the wordiest lesson I have ever given. Apologies for the small font. If you want this in a more consumable format, start following Barbell Logic on YouTube and read the articles on StartingStrength.com. 
As always, get your info from me only until you can get it for yourself.

Once a week, I take 5-10 minutes out of practice to introduce the athletes to an important topic. I call the series "I'm going to learn you a lesson" and Nutrition was the first one we did this year. 
As this is not a nutrition or biology course, I skipped over things like "glycogen is the stored form of glucose".

2k test first session followed by erg golf (18*1:00) second session. I threw in some squats and presses before practice because that's what needed to be done today.

Just leaning into another weekday workout with the most talented high school rowers in the country. Squats, presses, deadlifts, ergs, and even two yahoos on the bikes.

Congrats to @t.ylerkruger for a milestone squat of 225/5/3 today! Water day for some, a 2k PR for one, and plenty of weights.
