Meet 10-4-13

After a long 2 weeks of training at the OTC we had a competition, it was an official sanctioned meet. Snatch I went 143,148 miss, 148 make, 151 miss so 148. So a 2kg pr.

C&J went 173,176. 180 made clean didn't attemp jerk due to dizziness , then took 180 again and same thing happened!

So overall I beat all the 85s in the snatch with 148! And totaled a PR of 324!!!! 7kg pr.

Two Weeks at Olympic Training Center



I was invited out to train at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO. The OTC is said to be one of the nicest training centers in the world. 

I will be here from Sept 23-Oct 6, and will have a full 2 weeks with the head coach of USA Weightlifting, Zygmunt Smalcerz. I am grateful for the opportunity to be evaluated and learn from the best.

Well from here on out I will try to post as much as possible about my experience here and what I have learned etc.

PS. The food here is awesome and we get to eat as many times as we want!!!!!
