This week Joe is joined by Walt Neubauer.  Walt is part of the ECG leadership team, the head coach of the Wilmington Weightlifting Club, and has his sights set on qualifying for the 2019 Masters World Championships.   Beard maintenance, squat jerks, and the benefits of taking on your first meet are the topics of the session.  The general recommendations, as you would expect are to get out there and try sooner rather than later.  Give this show a listen for the finer points and why competing has so much more to offer than not!
