Edmond Avetisyan  GB weightlifter (94kg) πŸ‹ πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸ‡¦πŸ‡²

Lil man is growing up fast. ❀

Some plyometric exercises post heavy weightlifting. It definitely helps to add some explosive power which translates to my weightlifting. Also improves my recovery between sessions. After squats my legs feel heavy, this promotes blood flow and actually making my legs feel fresh again. However, I make sure not to do too much as it can also have the opposite effect and negatively impact my lifting. For those who want to jump higher, be more explosive check out @semtex_systems or message my bro @benthebounce two time Olympian.

Putting on the Lion and throwing yourself under 195kg. Thanks for the photos @underthebarwl

My lifts from the games. 150-154 (snatch) and 190-195 (cleanandjerk). I just lost my balance on the 154 and the 195 was actually a better clean than the 190, however, it was a massive grind which took too much energy to stand. It also slipped off my chest at the top which killed the lift for me, i simply had no air to execute the jerk. P.s. in the last 8 weeks of training with Andy Callard I only missed one jerk, i'm confident once my leg strength increases i can finally bring down the 200, which is my ultimate goal.

4th at my first commonwealth games!! I lifted a personal best total of 340kg! Not sure where to start but this has been the best experience I have ever had as an athlete, the home crowd, the cheer, the noise. I was beat by some of the best lifters in the world and had an extremely tough category; to put into perspective my total would have won me a medal in 3 previous games. So i'm gutted not to win but that's fine, my teammates took 6 medals including gold πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Ž
I'd also like to thank my coaches @sawyer.dave @strengthcoachsm and Andy Callard, for supporting me every step of the way, couldn't have asked for a better team. Special thanks has to be given to Andy Callard, who's the head coach of @europaweightlifting for allowing me to train with him and stay at his house for the last 8 weeks which has helped tremendously. Not to forget my home gym @mygym_bristol for their constant love and support and of course i can't forget where i started @Empire under Andy Sutor. Finally love and respect to my competitors, all great people if you take the time to get to know them 😊 @forresterosei @boady_champ

Didn't know which one to pick so I went for all 😎 All the hard work in training has been complete. Now it's time to recover and give it everything on Sunday. πŸ‘Š
@officialteamengland @commgamesaus @jackolivergb @benwatson20 @owenb5566 @alexcolliergb

182 clean and jerk and 140/145 snatch. Another 7kg added to my (total) training personal best. 😊 I'm also 3kg lighter than i was last week.

Cruising the streets of Australia with the shredded @jackolivergb after a morning session. Putting me to shame 😐

Had a sick session down @europaweightlifting with the big man @owenb5566 (also competing at the commonwealth games). We're both doing the same program so here's a 180 C/J and a 140 snatch. This is a training total personal best for me. Feeling confident 3 weeks out from comp. P.s. my back foot slid during the jerk recovery, had it under control 😎

165 clean, squat/Jerk from last weeks England training camp and a 170 kg this week. The 170 was more difficult to complete as the enviroment can play a huge role. These are also done at my most fatigued state post 5 days of training, so it's all positive so far. 😊 #eleikosport @mygym_bristol

(New personal bests!!) 120kg x 2 power snatch, followed by 130 x1 and a close 135 which wasn't quite power. Great training session with the team, positive environment and a lot of good lifting. Awesome coaching from big Dave and @strengthcoachsm. Also, amazing facilities here in Sweden at Eleiko headquarters. @eleiko_uk @2018_commonwealth_games #weightlifting #weightlifter #powerlifting #crossfit #olympiclifting #training #snatch #clean #jerk #power #speed #strength #sport #motivation

Late as usual, but for those of you who don't know, I have been selected to represent team England at the commonwealth games this year. Which will be held in Australia, mid April. I have the support I need and will do everything I can to medal, hopefully all goes to plan. Let's go! πŸ‘Š
