As promised this is the video of me lifting in the BWLA Northern Masters Olympic Weightlifting competition in Keighley, West Yorkshire last week. I was trying to get a 175 total. To be clear, I won due to the fact I was the only person lifting in my age and weight category, lol.
If you compare that video to my video of the Yorkshire and North East Counties Open championships last year, despite lifting more then, I think I’ve improved my form. Particularly I’ve worked hard on keeping the bar closer to my legs on the 1st pull, but there are still more things to work on. On both the Snatch, the Clean and the Jerk, the bar moves forward causing a forward jump. It’s not as bad as it was, but more effort is required to fix that. I’ve also been working on not raising my bum up first, as you can see, it’s not completely fixed yet.
If you’re interested, this is a very quick video of my daughter doing a deadlift. Checkout the facial expressions, bless her!
