328 Snatch + 403 Clean & Jerk in SLOW-MO, sweet!! This was 6mo after I had hip surgery. I knew I couldn’t lift heavy after surgery so I used the time to study technique. I studied a lot of other lifters & compiled all of my own videos onto my computer so I could put them in slow-mo & freeze frame positions. I always loved the technical aspect but it wasn’t until I was forced out of lifting that I became obsessed with it. - What resulted was this meet, where I was weaker than before surgery yet I set a huge PR total. The mind is a powerful tool- Use every setback as an opportunity to regroup & re-attack!! This was at the 2014 Arnold where I lifted as a 94. 📸: @hookgrip
Two of my turds @bikemennan and @kelly_fitness3 testing their maxes a week out from @barbells.and.brews 🏋🏼I have the utmost lack of confidence in them and can't wait to bring home a pair of participation medals. Greatness awaits.
Because it uses so many large muscle groups, it’s an efficient exercise for providing a full-body strength #workout. That means it can provide stimulus for hypertrophy, too. The hypertrophy component is a little dependent on training styles, but even weightlifters who train in the lowest of reps have serious slabs of muscle on their back and legs.

Nothing but #legs this week. More of the same next week 😫. I almost died at #barbellclub today, went to sleep as soon as I got home (never mind teaching #zumbastep for an hour too 🤤😵). Here's #hangsnatch + 2 pause #OHS from Weds. Yes I'm special and have to reset my feet for the #overheadsquat because I've adopted some weird staggered foot catch on my #snatch 🙄.
