Coming fresh off of our biggest month ever, reaching over 1,000,000 of you worldwide, we bring you a fresh show filled with new guests. In Quadrant 1 we welcome Nate Naidas from Perfect Pull Sports Performance to help us figure out how Danny Nichols from the Phoenix Rise pulled off his amazing clean and jerks in the eleventh race TWICE to make the playoffs down in Miami, FL. We also talk about dysfunction growing in one of the NPGL teams, and we give quick recaps of both matches.
In Quadrant 2 we welcome Janice McLean, referee for the NPGL. She was in Miami during that epic match and amazing finish. Janice also discusses with us what it takes to become a referee for the NPGL. (hint: it’s effing haaaaaard!) These referees are professionals all in themselves and being a ref is a thankless job, we all know it.
In Quadrant 3 we welcome Danny Nichols from the Phoenix Rise. He gives us insight on what it was like to be in the action in Miami after winning the race, the discussions after the challenge flag was upheld, and what it was like after winning the final race 11 to make the playoffs. Here’s something crazy, Danny couldn’t walk for about an hour after his crazy clean and jerks, his muscles just seized up. We ask him where his “fire” comes from that drives him like a bull out on the GRID floor and where he came from.
We can’t wait for Anaheim California as the playoffs have now taken shape. Who do you guys think will take home the Pinnacle trophy? Sound off on our social media pages, we want to hear what you have to say.
