Here's my competition footage for those that are interested. My wife didn't get to the meet soon enough for the Snatches which is fine because my kids wouldn't have lasted through the whole competition if she had. After my first CJ they were more interested in the tractor parked in back. I wish I would have had my wife film Caleb Ward's lifts.

First CJ at 115. That is my 3 year old standing in the front.

Second CJ at 120. Thats Glenn in the black shirt off to the right hand side of the shot.

Third CJ at 125.

First two Jerks I think I had a little too much weight on the back foot evidenced by me kind of going backwards during recovery. Not really sure what happened on the third clean.

With a lighter weight I may have been able to recover the grip upon recovery but 125 was a PR attempt for me. So kind of heavy to pull a recovery like that. I have done 120 several times in practice before. One of these days I may need to quit going for 125 and just try 121 for a change.

I like hitting the 2's and 7's in between the 5kg jumps, personally.

Nice comp lifts, Brian!

Good idea. I remember way back when my max clean and jerk was 90 and I kept going for -- and missing -- 95 for a really, really long time. Sheer stubborness on my part. Well, one day I got forced to take 93, made it. Then made 97. 100 followed less than a month later. They make those 1.25 training plates for a reason

Nice comp. lifts, btw!
