As I promised in the comments of Jack Reape’s last article, here are the results of my first meet.
In the week before it I just did some light Speed work as Jack suggested.
I am 20 years old and from Aachen, Germany.
I weighhed in with 66,2kg ~145lbs @ about 65" height(sorry, I am not quite familiar with american measurements, so I can’t give it in feet)
That shocked me, because the weekend before on empty stomach I was not quite 64kg.
As it was my first meet and first touched a Bar with weights on it 10moths ago, I didn’t use a shirt.
My first attempt was 75kg ~ 165lbs
seccond one was 187lbs flew up, unfortunately red lighted because the pause on my chest was too short.
Last one was 87.5kgs ~ 192,5lbs
I smoked this, too, and i’ am sure i could have done 90. but too late.
With this weight I got place four of four competitors in my weight/age class.
the guy on 3rd place lifted the same weight, but unfortunatelly he was 200grams lighter than me. Should have gone to the toilet a little earlieer, huh.
Here is the link to the video of my last attempt, please critique me:
