Well motorbikes, riding them, talking about them, looking at them.

And student night down the pub, only time I can afford to go out is when the drinks only cost a quid! :D

Agreed. Especially #6. I have my 4-year old sit in my lap and she loves it when the petards blow up a building. She also enjoys ship battles.. :)

Haha. No, I wish. My clean and jerk/press is very good for my weight class, but my snatch isn't as competitive as it needs to be to compete beyond a state/provincial level (insert jokes here). There are also a lot of issues with anabolic/androgenic steroid use, growth hormone, insulin, etc, as well as short ester hormones and modern performance enhancers that aren't detectable with today's security measures. It's not exactly a level playing field and I have no interest in sacrificing my health, family, reputation, and career getting involved in such things. There are also other technology issues like powerlifting suits (a thick material created specifically for a lifter) which can improve a lift by a number of kilos.

Too see Olympic lifting, search it on youtube. Basically though, all Olympic lifts start with the weight on the floor and end up over your heard. Power lifting consists of 3 measurable lifts -- the deadlift, benchpress, and squat.

I've got a couple old powerlifting videos that I could post. Nothing crazy, but might interest some people a little.

Other than hanging out with the family, which is really a requirement and not an activity, I enjoy martial arts. Not that I'm very good, but its a great way to relieve stress. It's the one place I can go where yelling, kicking, punching, and getting hit is not only acceptable, it's encouraged.

Believe it or not, I also enjoy my work.



EDIT: By the way Drew, perhaps if you stopped lifting weights so much, your snatch would be competitive. 8)

When my 4-month old sits in my lap, she loves watching buildings blow up. Of course, when she's on my lap, they're all my buildings that blow up. :(
