AWPC World Powerlifting Competition
BOOK OF THE WEEK
By Gary Mack with David Casstevens
I can’t even recall how many times I have tried Visualization without success. This time, I read this book over and over and I spent a month or so daily visualizing throughout the day every aspect of what I was going to do at the AWPC World’s from my warmup lifts through my three competitive attempts.
This book was written for athletes, but I think you can apply it just as well to other situations.
In Mind Gym, noted sports psychology consultant Gary Mack explains how your mind influences your performance on the field or on the court as much as your physical skill does, if not more so. Through forty accessible lessons and inspirational anecdotes from prominent athletes–many of whom he has worked with–you will learn the same techniques and exercises Mack uses to help elite athletes build mental “muscle.” Mind Gym will give you the “head edge” over the competition.

MOVIE OF THE WEEK
I tried to watch a number of movies this week, but they were all so bad that I ended up making this film the movie of the week. In my defense, I was trapped in an airplane and had already seen any sort of worthwhile movie they had to offer.
As for this movie, I think the title says it all. Unless you really like Sam Elliot, I would pass on this one too.
The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then Bigfoot (2018)
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
All Shook Up
ART OF THE WEEK
This is definitely a classic photo. Although I have never been to the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum, I understand you can purchase the picture there.
The President and The King
EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
(Jan. 8, 1935 – Aug. 16, 1977)
I think the following video does an excellent job of letting you know about Elvis, The King Of Rock N’ Roll.
THIS WEEK’S JOKE
It is important to eat right and here is an opportunity for you see see Elvis actually making is fried peanut butter and banana sandwich.
Queen wrote Crazy Little Thing Called Love as a tribute song to Elvis.
Elvis liked the song so much he recorded it with Freddie Mercury right there in the studio.
It is so hard for me to believe, but there are people out there with the attitude that if you lend them money, it means you don’t need it back.
