Default First weightlifting Competition

Last weekend,National Team competition,competed as a 77kg lifter,5 out of 6 lifts,50-55x-57kg snatch and 70-77-82kg clean and jerk,a 2 kilo pr from training.No videos from the snatch but it went ok,probably could have done 60-65kg on the snatch and 90kg on the jerk but let's see next month,i'll compete on the Masters Nationals.
Remember,no coach,just some tips,books and dvds.

Well done Helder!!!!

Love it.

PRs at comps are awesome. Especially when you thought you had more in the tank. From the vids, I agree with you.

All the best,
Arden
