Default Historical footage: one of my first olympic lifting sessions...

Do you think that your lifting sucks? Do you feel that nobody does it worse? I can assure you no matter how bad you do, somebody (me) did worse when he started lifting on his own years ago. Not that I do much better today...

What follows is a display of extremely bad technique, constant coping with backpain and high temperatures (~40 degree celsius) and ultra unsophisticated equipment. In a way it's also entertaining to see myself struggling with my then PRs in the snatch (25kg.0) and clean and jerk (30.0kg). Man did I suck... horrible, I mean really horrible... So watch parts of one of my first sessions, Sunday morning, 10. Aug 2003:
