I am encouraged now…
Now I want to try olympic lifting. I have to find a coach first but I was shocked seeing little guys like myself lifting nearly 3 times their weight. How do they do it? How do they stay so small? And how long would it probably take to reach that level of weightlifting (if you have the genetics)?[/quote]
They lift that much weight because they are training there asses off. They stay small, because they don’t eat enough to grow… how long would it probably take… well they are in the olympics… You can’t olympic lift for a few years, and hope to be lifting as much in your weight class as the athletes who have been training since they were children.
EDIT: Lol in the time it took me to type my post someone else responded before me saying almost the exact same thing… ah well.
