LIFTED A BAVARIAN RECORD 💜 The next milestone is done ✅ 🎉 Yesterday the Swabian Championships in Olympic Weightlifting went down in Ben’s Gym. First competition after quite some time. Weigh In: 48,0kg 💦 Snatch: 48 ✔️50 ✔️ 52❌
Clean & Jerk: 65 ✔️68 ✔️70 ✔️
With a 70kg Clean & Jerk being a new Bavarian Record in my weight class (-48kg). 🎊 💪🏼 Well, as you may know, I am never entirely satisfied with my performance. I think that is also a necessity for every sport. But all things considered I’m really happy with how things went yesterday. A second place and a silver medal for me only being 0.3 Sinclair points away from 1st place. 🥈 I can live with that 😂 👍🏼 Every formula definitely does have some pros and cons for different lifters, wether it’s weight classes, Sinclair Coefficient or relative points. With Sinclair I personally have to fight for my points 👊🏽- and I did 😊 I even lifted a new Bavarian record. 🎊 🙋🏼♀️ But in hindsight that’s not what I’m happy about. I scrolled down in my instagram and looked at the old pictures and videos of last year’s competition. I am also happy that I worked on my technique and strength, of course.
But there is something I was pleased about at the most: 💕 My mental game. 🧠 This is something I really had to work on in 2017, especially due to my health issues. I haven’t ever been fighting for a lift before, I wasn’t confident on the platform and most of the time I wasn’t happy with what I can do and I wasn’t believing in myself - even if I took 1st or 2nd place. Why? I think that’s bc I was comparing myself to others. And I stopped. I am happy and grateful for my life and I don’t want to change a thing. Don’t get me wrong. I want to change a lot of things: I want to improve myself, I want to learn and I want to get better. But I want to work for all of that and improve every aspect of my life by myself. 💜 The way is the goal. #trusttheprocess Wishing you a happy Whitsun <33
\\ COMEBACK //
Is this a comeback from @quinn_coote? Taken a break from any crossfit to “get swole brah”. First day back hits a 135kg split jerk (25kg PB) and some rowing intervals with @khada12321.
No matter your goals, @thegameplanprogram supports them and will help you achieve them!
Dinner time! Jerk brisket, coleslaw with jerk mustard mayo potato salad 👊🏾the brisket was smoked for 6 hours using @littlebrixton Jerk Marinade with cherry and apple wood. The brisket was wrapped in foil at 170c and taken off the kettle at 195c. Thanks to @charcharcharbutchers for a top cut of brisket 👍🏾
The Goose aka Gustavo has hated me from the day he was rescued from the streets of San Bernardino CA. He had a tooth root abscess, his teeth were disgusting. I did a dental and took all but two teeth...he is still able to draw blood with those two teeth. He loves @joeruppel and everyone else who isn’t me. He’s a dick. I want a senior #halfjaw chihuahua who loves me the way Pancho did. #hehatesme#suchadick#goose#meanchihuahua#jerk
