Wow, that’s awesome Koing. Sounds like you have some serious experience under your belt. You must have to do quite a bit of travelling to be able to compete that frequently.
I trained a bit here and there with variations of the O-lifts in high school and college when I still was involved in team sports. However, it has only really been over the past two years or so that I have really worked at become proficient in the Olympic style variations of the lifts.
I have never really worked with a coach on my technique, and so my progress has probably been a little slower than some may achieve. Regardless, I have so much fun while trying to improve my abilities in the lifts, and it is likely that I will seek out the guidence of an experienced coach in the near future to really hone my skills.
Anyway, I am very passionate about weightlifting and training in general as well. I thrive off of the challenge the lifts bring.
Best of luck tomorrow! Be sure to let me know how it goes. I would love talk shop with you more in depth in the future.
