Attention all lifters and parents: Kansas State Championships are in Olathe, Kansas on Aug 27th and 28th. I hope most or all of our lifters will be able to make it!
Heck of a day today. We did snatches and OHS then practiced the jerk for the first time and I was really surprised at how many of the kids picked it right up. I have always said that the jerk is the hardest part of weightlifting. Kids can become good at the clean through practice, they can even become good at the snatch through practice and hard work, but it is very hard to excel at the jerk without at least a little bit of talent. Luckily almost all of these kids seem to have the back for jerking.
We have our first meet at the later part of august and I can't wait to see what weights they put up!
We also did a 1RM for front squats today, and these are the results:
Will 195 PR
EJ 135 PR
Jakob 190 PR
Christina 140 PR
Rachael 140 PR
Autumn 115 PR
Vin 80 PR
Cory 80 PR
I love the fact that almost every single person made a new Personal Record!
