Wow, it has been a long time since I have posted a blog on here! I suppose I would like to give the normal excuse of “I have been busy” haha. Lots of work and training I guess. Nationals is March 2nd-3rd in Columbus, Ohio. It is the Arnold Classic where the Nationals will be held. It should be a great competition.
I have been having some problems with my shoulder so I haven’t been able to snatch or jerk in about 2 months now. Although, I have still been working hard and getting stronger in other areas. Training is always up and down, but, I am riding the waves.
Nationals should be a great meet to see where I am at. I am also very motivated to show a lot of improvement from last years Arnold Classic Performance.
–Carroll Weightlifting Meet (March 2010)- Snatched 125kg, Clean & Jerked 163kg
–Arnold Classic (March 2011) – Snatched 141kg and Clean & Jerked 168kg. (+21kgs from last year)
–Arnold Classic (March 2012) – TBD
The most important thing for me is to continually improve each year. I wasn’t happy with my improvement from year 1 to year 2. I did add 21kgs in that year, but, I didn’t improve on my Clean & Jerk really at all. 1 year went by and I basically didn’t get any better in that lift. 1 month of preparation is left and I am pretty darn excited for this year’s Arnold!!
