Friday, August 2

Here’s some cool weightlifting videos I saw this week. First up, American Wes Kitts wins gold at the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, Peru earlier this week. He knew if he made this lift (477 lbs), which was a weight he’s hit plenty of times, he’d win. Pretty great to see the emotion on his face and his coach’s reaction when he makes it. (No sound unfortunately)


Second, here’s a comparison of two of the best in the world. You can see that their techniques are not identical, but they do all the major things the same. So while your technique might not look exactly like the person next to you, there are principles of the lifts that apply to everyone. Read the caption for more explanation.
