Re: My current PR's

Nice numbers Arni.

I'll be keeping an eye on this thread as you're a similar size to me (though you're a bit taller) with some similar numbers (though yours are a bit better).
Very impressed with your front and OHS, and power cleans - these are lifts I'm currently struggling to get to grips with - now I have a target to aim for .

All the best,
Scott

PS I was in Iceland in February for a holiday (planned to get to one of CF boxes up there, never quite made it!). What a country! I'll be back...

Thanks for the comment Scott, will be fun to see how you get along with your lifts!

Shoot me a PM if you ever come to Iceland again, I'll take you to my box for a workout

Did "Kelly" today for the first time.

34:00

Goal is to go under 30mins next time. Hopefully the running will improve during the summer.

Re: My current PR's

Just got my new Rogue Do-Wins so I decided to work on my power clean today.

Previous PR was 209lbs/95 kgs...

New PR today.... 225lbs/102.5kg!!

Was so happy to go over 100kg for the first time.

Now I just need to work on my Jerk, that's not as good because I've had a bad shoulder for a long time.

Re: My current PR's

You're pretty strong for being 6 inches tall.
