Get inspired: Pyrros Dimas (Greece, -85kg) and Marc Huster (Germany, -85kg) battle it out at 1998 European Weightlifting Championships. Huster wins gold with a 382.5kg Total (but Dimas comes back to take gold later that year at World’s).


  • Max snatch
  • Max clean & jerk

And finally, an ode to weightlifting.

  1. Snatch- 75# (same as best ever)
    C&J- 10#pr @ 99#

  2. snatch: 68kg (tied PR)
    C&J: 81kg (juuuust missed the jerk at 86kg)

    …clean PR: 88kg

    Total: 149kg (1kg under my best ever Total, I’ll take it)

    1. then max FS immediately after… 96kg (not a PR, but 101kg literally crushed me)

  3. Well, participation ribbon for me…

    -5 lb on both snatch and clean. Did c&j after, just form practice as I haven’t been focusing on the jerk.

    Only win for today was I PRd my squat snatch, which is about +20# since I left Cville. My ability to catch in a nice looking squat is slowly improving. Sloooowly.

  4. Snatch: 85lbs!!! (with proper form too! heaviest since getting the boot off)
    C&J: 105lbs!!!! new PR!!! Yay!
    I guess we’re supposed to add them for a total: 190lbs / 86kg – that’s right around Elizabeth’s C&J! haha! puts it all in perspective 🙂

  5. snatch: 109# (-10 from last PR)
    c&j: 129# (tied PR)

  6. Snatch: 85 PR
    C&J:110 PR
    I also ugly cleaned 115kg then attempted a jerk.

    1. Then row 500m 1:27.9 rest 1 min row 500m 1:34 ish

  7. snatch: 75 kg (pr + 3 kg)
    clean and jerk: 95 kg (missed 100 kg a few times)
    bodyweight: 86 kg (pr… haha)

    I’ve been messing around with carb back loading: http://www.carbbackloading.com/ in an effort to gain mass while staying lean. Any “diet” where you can eat a pint of ice cream at night for “mass gain” is cool by me!
