Had my first weightlifting comp today.

The coach started me on very conservative weights so i made 6 from 6 with plenty left in the tank.

Snatch 60kg
C + J 80kg

Next goal is 75/100 which according to the coach i should hit within a month.

Got another comp next week so i'll be shooting for some bigger numbers.

Simon lifted too but i can't remember his best lifts off the top of my head.

Strong work Don.
Like Stephen said,"there is nothing like competition"
I'll add this to his quote.
"There is nothing like competition, to bring out your best"

Competing again, for me is one of the best things to have come about for me.
Keep it up.

Great Job Don! you'll be amazed at how fast your technique and numbers improve now that you have "exposed" yourself in competition.

Nice Job! I'm trying to get to 85kg right now for a meet I want to get to in March but that's a lot of food for me with the schedule I have right now, probably just lift with the 77's.

Don Stevenson 02-01-2006 01:31 AM

I have to watch my weight to keep under 85 at the moment.

I'll probably do a couple more comps at 85 and then go up to around 91kg

The comp this weekend should be interesting since i tried to cut my thumb off today and i'm going to have to be careful!

John Vernon 02-01-2006 09:50 AM

Sweet! who needs thumbs anyway...waaaay overrated.

Today in my second comp

- 58 power snatched it
- 63 power snatch
- 65 easy power snatch
really got to work on hitting the bottom and i think i'd be good for another 10kg, maybe more


- 78 power clean split jerk
- 85 easy clean and split jerk
- 90 cleaned it, jerked it but had the tiniest of pressouts on my right arm and got two red flags
