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

To see this in-person is both inspiring and depressing at the same Time...
Uh I out weigh him by at least 10 Kg's and I am excited about doing 1/2 plus bw snatches let alone almost 2 times bw. Wow! I have figured out anytime I need motivation it is only as far away as YouTube. Amazing some of the lifts on there.
