T Nation

Been a Long Time, Plus First Weightlifting Comp


I am not new to the T Nation forums, I joined a hell of a long time ago now but I haven't signed in for years to discuss on the forums but still read the content on the site regularly.

I started training 13 / 14 years old and I'm now 26. I spent a few years just getting bigger and hitting all the t shirt exercises.. :slight_smile: then went into strongman competitions for a year or two and now I have finally got into olympic lifting in the past six months and recently did my first meet, Northern Ireland Championship, where I took first place in my Category with a 90 kg snatch and 127 kg clean and jerk. Not massive numbers, but the 105 kg class isn't really filled out over here so I got gold with those numbers.

Anyways I will share some videos from the competition and training and hope to learn a lot from other members on here as there isn't many places to go and discuss the olympic lifts so i will be on here more often to check out what the rest of the world is doing.

Stay strong.




127 kg clean and jerk from first competition this November
