Yeah, it's pretty amazing to see some of the weights thrown around by people who aren't necessarily built like a brick sh-thouse.

Here's a 77kg class lifter from NJ, Mike Tirrito, snatching 130kg...

...and he only outweighs me by a few pounds!

There's another local lifter, Peter Musa, whom I recently saw snatching 100 and CJ'ing 123 at a bodyweight of under 69kgs (he's around 14 or 15 years old, btw).

To see this in-person is both inspiring and depressing at the same time...
