First Things First...

The New issue of Powerlifting USA is on the stands, that is the issue marked March 2009 is in town at Mayfair Mags on Broadway in Vancouver...The issue is a good one as always...and since I nudged the store to bring in 12 copies a month...I always try to alert Vancouver lifters when the new one's here...get it !

Tom Manno terrific bench presser is in town for a fitness friend Jody Cranston tipped me off about it...
Tom hit 700 at a masters age group lifter (50?) here he warms up for a WABDL meet
with the Great Mike Womack ( 942 world record bench) at left--
Jim Presley (high 600 bencher) "Mr. Arms" center
--And Seattle Super Coach Joe Head spotting at end.
I took this picture at a Worlds a few years back.

Tom was showing his line of supplements in Vancouver this weekend...I'm sorry I didn't make it down ...ya know...Jody (powershape blog link is at side here at my site)
