How are those tempo OHS treating everyone? This week we are hitting a ridiculous (9911) tempo. This is almost a 20 second rep, so be proud of hitting this at whichever weight you chose.
The Rio Olympics are currently on, and now that all of you have done some weightlifting, you can really appreciate how amazing the lifters on tv are right now. To put things into perspective, here are some of the top lifts so far. Think about the weights these athletes of all sizes are hitting next time those 45kg Snatches are feeling heavy. :)
"Remember, somewhere a 13 year old Chinese girl is warming up with your max."- Some guy
LONG Qingquan: 56kg Men (123 lbs)- Snatch 137kg, Clean and Jerk 170kg. Thats a triple bodyweight clean and jerk....
TANASAN Sopita: 48 kg Women (105 lbs)- Snatch 92kg, Clean and Jerk 108kg. Only 2 or so males currently at CF 46 have snatched over 90kg.
XIANG Yanmei: 69kg Women (151.8 lbs)- Snatch 116kg, Clean and Jerk 145kg. Mind-blowing.
RAHIMOV Nijat: 77kg Men (165 lbs)- Snatch 165kg, Clean and Jerk 214kg. This Clean and Jerk is more than most men in Kristiansand Deadlift. World Record.
Anyway, amazing athletic feats. I recommend watching these unique lifters, who are at the top of the game.
Enjoy the week,
