Sometimes some things in life just don’t make much sense. Like this sign I parked next to when I was up in Petaluma, CA coaching the weightlifting team this past Saturday. If you understand this one, please post insight to comments.
The ladies of #FuBarbell supporting each other at The Rivertown Classic weightlifting meet in Petaluma, CA. 2 of our ladies (@christinecarosi, @hanagrams) placed 3rd in their weight class and another 2 (@christinecarosi, @paddygriffin) set lifetime PRs on the stage.
A common observation of new weightlifters squatting to improve weightlifting performance is a lack of appropriate depth. What is commonly observed is the tendency for athletes to stop at a range that is hip crease below knees. Now, depending on the standard of movement for the purpose of the activity, this may be completely appropriate and acceptable under a certain set of circumstances. However, if you care about your Olympic weightlifting performance, get low.
