First weightlifting meet in over a year! After some injuries and nearly quitting the sport I finally made back to the platform. Only consistently training for about 4 months but had a great day and hit a 85 kg Snatch (187 lb) and a meet PR Clean and Jerk at 110 kg (242 lb) Thanks @bigbluestrength for hosting a great weightlifting meet! And thanks @kellijo13 for coming to support and recording the videos! #weightlifting #olympicweightlifting #oly #crossfit #strength #speed #power #snatch #cleanandjerk

Keep grinding! A little more each day! There are no quick fixes in anything in life. You just have to put the work in!

🔊Listen up! Today’s Friday Phil-osophy is🔥🔥
“Stop Using The Word FIX!”
🔸So often, I hear athletes say things like “I’m going to come in to fix my Jerk”, or “Can you fix my snatch?” STOP!
🔹This is implying that one cue, one exercise, or even within one day that you can miraculously obtain perfect technique in a certain area.
🔸Two things that are very important in the sport of Weightlifting: Patience and Expectation Management. The thought that you can spend minimal amount of time and obtain a quick fix is absurd. It offends the long-time athletes and coaches that have spent decades trying to correct improper movement patterns. Great athletes of any sport have spent countless hours in perfect conditions perfecting a very specific technique that allows for them to excel at their sport.
🔹Consistency and exposure to the movement is what allows for us to create the neurological education that we call “muscle memory”. Unfortunately, this is also what has allowed us to create an improper movement pattern to begin with.  The challenging part is that not only do we have to learn how to do the movement correctly, but it also may involve an unlearning of the previous movement in order to obtain that. This process takes months and years. The more times you can do it correctly, the closer you get. This is why having patience is essential to the process.
