Smashing The American Record
🙌🏽226LBS/102.5KG 🙌🏽American record. Previously it was posted about the failure. This was true. In this particular federation 212 was the attempt for the national record. I missed it. Then came redemption. I made it. Then I took 226 fo a ride. Usually I like a traditional grip. A week ago however I had a really bad tendon strain and caused me to have to use a variety of grips. Fortunately I made an in meet adjustment to a close grip that put less stress on the forearm. It paid off. Most of my heavy overload training I did both traditional and wide. The rules state that you can use EITHER.
I’ll do a post with the full version tomorrow night. This is just a glimpse of the finish that set the tone for bigger badder things to come. Stay tuned for the next meet!!! ILL BE READY FOR SEPTEMBER.
