I’ve always thought I was strong in a gym setting. Lifting with friends shooting for PRs.
I recently wanted to test myself, so I did my first weightlifting meet.
My goal was just to do well, considering I had no real expectations or understand how a meet was even ran.
I went 6/6
Clean & Jerk 152/335.
I had the heaviest clean and jerk and heaviest snatch. Winning the overall as well.
My coach and I looked up the current national records for my division the snatch was 120.
It feels great to say I “unoffically” broke a national record by hitting that 122.
And a total that would place me 2nd in the nation!
