watch and compare...
If anyone would like to compare their form with someone lifting weights close ro the american records... check this out

watch the video, this is one of my lifters hitting a 170kg snatch (374lbs) which is only 4lbs under the american record. He hit this yesterday, after a "light" week which still contained 4 sessions of maximal lifts on the snatch and clean and jerk, and of course, squat.

FYI, he attempted 175kg which is about 6lbs above the american record, after this, and caught it on straight arms and lost it behind him.

I am posting this here because it was done in what seen live and in full speed, seemed like good form to me. i was happy with this lift. compare and i hope it helps someone to see this. this is what you want to look like when you snatch.

As a new fan of Olympic lifting, thanks for that. That lift was a thing of beauty IMHO.

Just curious, what is Donny's weight?

He weighed 106.5kg yesterday, but competes at 105kg, or 231lbs.

Would've been impressive if it was the record... Pfft.

Just kidding. That is awesome for Donnie. I saw the 165 attempt on the video feed for the meet last month. That attempt looked easy as pie. How is Caleb doing in training?

Re: watch and compare...
Caleb has had a couple of little injuries, nothing too serious, a rib out of place, strain in his calf, etc, that have kept him from really big numbers lately... but hes the strongest he has ever been, and I expect something big soon. Looking at both him and donny hitting medium weights like 150/190, caleb looks far stronger than donny.

I admit it. I'm a fan.

He's looking faster these days.
