72kg/158.4 C&J PR and a 75kg/165lb clean PR (I died on the jerk lolz). now I’ve cleaned 75 and I’ve jerked 75, just need to put them together at the Arnold. 10 daysπŸ˜ˆπŸ‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ s/o to @scrow110 for the videos and encouragement!

and on the 10th day, Katie learned how to jerk. PR’d twice: 72kg/158.4lb and 75kg/165lb (4kg PR). 75 was a bit wobbly, but we’ll clean it up for the ArnoldπŸ˜ˆπŸ‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ BW: 66.7kg
3 weeks out.

apparently moderate sleep deprivation and extreme stress make for good liftsπŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ 60kg/132lb snatch (1kg PR) and 70kg/154lb c&j (1 kg under my PR with a little iffy elbow but hey, it’s a gym make) for a 130kg/286lb total (2kg PR!) 4 weeks😈 no snatch misses with 2 buttery ones at 58kg before this. technical consistency is improving πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

snatches didn’t go as planned- only made my opener at 56kg but I went 3/3 in the clean and jerk with 71kg PR! 56/71/127 giving me a 3kg meet total PR! Time to start getting ready for the Arnold.
BW: 65.9kg
also, s/o to @rubbercityweightlifting for being one hell of a coach and doing the absolute most for all of us!

I couldn't be any happier with a 4/6 day at my first big platform meet.
snatch: 51/54/x57
c&j: 62/65/x69
total: 119kg @ 64.88kg BW
both third attempts were meet PR attempts- stood them up but got red lighted for my elbow.
can't wait to get to work on our next training cycle. πŸ‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜ˆ #AO3 #rubbercityweightlifting #unrivaledstrength #nikeweightlifting #rogue #usaweightlifting #timetofangirl #hairflipgamestrong
