It is Friday evening here in the US and that means it is time for some data analysis. This lovely graph shows the body weights of the competitors plotted against their totals for the recent Fall Classic. In the name of metrication, all of these values are in kilograms. It would not come as a surprise that totals generally increase with increasing body weight, but body weight is certainly not the sole variable at play. •
The trendlines shown here for the men and women are logarithmic. Is that the correct equation class for these trendlines? It might or might not be. We included the R-squared values, too, for those that know what they are and care about such things. If you would like to play with the data from the Fall Classic, you can do so, too. The results document has a link to a spreadsheet containing the data. All of that is available at our site linked in the bio. Knock yourselves out. Or don't. 😀
Have a wonderful weekend.

Petra (@petra_smitkova) smiles to herself as she puts the bar back in the rack after a successful squat attempt. Surely, she was also amused by our efforts to make sure all the tables were correct in the Fall Classic results.
Some of the data supplied to us by Atlanta had incorrect totals. The women's results were not affected, but nine men in Atlanta moved up in the standings. Their third deadlift attempts were not counted in their final score. All fixed now. Fortunately, this did not affect any overall or weight class winners, or anyone above 31st place in the overall men's results. If you placed below 31st overall for the men and were not competing in Atlanta, you may have moved down a notch in the placings, or you may be in the same place depending upon the vagaries of the corrections. Whatever the case, as far as we can tell, the correct results are published on the website (link in bio). Fingers crossed.
Also, there are just seven spots remaining for Nationals. If you would like to sign up, you should do so in the near future.
He’s not my cup of tea, but I feel like he genuinely wants to improve US Soccer. But in interviews he doesn’t seem to have any answers. His interview with the Inverted Triangle Podcast left me underwhelmed. He sort of danced around the questions, making him come off as incompetent.

310lb (Kevin being a smart ass) and 330 lb respectively.
When I start pushing the upper limits of my squat, little deviations in my technique make a big difference.
My focus is always:
-VISUALIZATION of the lift.
-ROUTINE. I walk out and set up the same whether I’m squatting 95lb or 300lb.
-DEPTH. Not too much. Not too little.
-EVALUATION. How did the lift feel. Have someone else watch it or video it. What could I do better?
Thank you @leah.and.life for evaluating my videos and programming and Ted for the day to day reassurance/coaching and harassment ;).

After ageing like a fine wine, the 2017 USSF Fall Classic results are available on the USSF website. Link in bio. It is a feast for those that like lots of tables of data. Congratulations to all of the competitors. Enjoy all of the numbers.
Saying Gulati orchestrated a plan to destroy the NASL is very bold... Wynalda has expressed his deep disliking for Sunil and the USSF in most interviews I’ve come across. He tends to describe Sunil’s leadership style as “divide and conquer”. Says Sunil is part of the US soccer culture that needs to change. So far he’s the only one pinning Sunil in a negative light.
Eric Wynalda gave a very insightful interview with Total Soccer Show a few days ago. He bluntly gave his views on the current and past federation, thoughts on Sunil Gulati, experiences as a player, and explained a bit of his platform as a running USSF Presidential Candidate.
