Itís been awhile since Iíve been hereÖÖmy competitive olympic weightlifting progress

So, some people might remember me, Iím a ex-crossfitter who switched over to oly lifting a couple years back, and spent over a year getting coaching advice from many of you guys over the forum. I got into competing last summer, which took me to provincial jrs, then Canadian jrs, and just this past weekend, provincial srs. I donít post here much anymore, but I figured Iíd toss up my competition videos. (Weights in kg)

1st Place - Blue Mountain Open (August, 2013): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fheq6iChP7s
Snatch 79kg
C/J 98kg

3rd Place - Ontario Jr. Championships (December, 2013): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygXJv796Xac
Snatch 88kg
C/J 105kg

2nd Place - Canadian Jr. Championships (January 2014): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iV-9ZFI4qo
Snatch 88kg
C/J 108kg

3rd Place - Ontario Sr. Championships (March 2013): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7qguBDbzE8
Snatch 92kg
C/J 115kg

If anyone has any interest in keeping up with my training, I tend to update my instagram the most (I used to have a training log here that I updated frequently), feel free to check me out @daniel_frankel

Cheers!

- Daniel

Wow, you've come a long way. I remember the threads of you lifting in your basement. Way to stick with it. Did you find a coach/gym to train at?

Thanks mate! I went off to university, found a masters student who knew a hell of a lot more than me. We trained all year together, but now I'm home for the summer in my basement again.

Looks pretty solid. Good work. In which weight class do you compete?

Just one idea: Have you ever tried to lower your elbows before you dip during your jerk (forearms more or less at 45 degree compared to parallel to the ground)? This should help your lockout.

69kg - says in my signature.

I don't typically miss jerks, but my performance at my last 2 meets has been a bit shaky. My lockout isn't what I'm concerned about, its my clean. If I pick it up, it typically goes overhead.
