Thursday, September 19

Weightlifting World Championships begin Thursday in Pattaya, Thailand and go through next Friday. You can watch a live stream of the event in the YouTube video below (it will only stream during the live event, and Pattaya is 12 hours ahead of US Central time). You can see a full schedule of US lifters here, and ESPN will be streaming some of the sessions with American lifters.

In the Instagram video below you can see some highlights of the last Team USA training sessions before heading to Thailand. I love seeing all of the different body types that are great at the sport of weightlifting. From 49 kg/108 lb women up to 109 kg+/240 lb+ men. All of them look slightly different because they are maximizing technique for their particular body. You can do the same thing. You don’t have to look like anyone else, but you can still find the best positions and technique for you!
