Nice work! My favorite part about it is how well you strain. Most women would have given up in the middle of the first lift because it was “hard” and they “couldn’t do it…” That’s BULLSHIT! you should do very well at your meet! Agree about the jerking though… you should have tension on the bar and try to “bend” the bar before you actually start to lift it. Then, once you have tension on the bar and are trying to bend it, you pull your heels through the floor and the weight, theoretically =D, should fly up! =D Easier said than done!
The requirement to strain is the best part! The “I dont know if this is possible but I want to see!” part. I love that.
Meanwhile, thank you for that version of the elbows and bar. I apprciate the different ways people think of it. Digging the heels I don’t think about nearly enough, I think more about my quads and butt.
Thanks for the critique![/quote]
Yeah different perspectives of how people interpret the lift and what they think before they do it are always interesting. I pull conventional myself and I probably don’t think about my quads ENOUGH… ahh well… always room for improvement I guess! =D What’s your opener at the meet? Do you have your 2nd and 3rd attempts planned or do you just decide them right then and there?
