Great Weightlifting Clinic today with members of Tribal Crossfit led by Jason Parent. The Clinic was led by 2011 Women’s World Team Head Coach Joe Micela. The Clinic is set up with a brief tutorial first on the Lifts. Then everyone goes over Joe Micela’s Teaching Progressions for each Lift. And finally all participants train up to a good working weight for 5 medium to heavy singles. They rest about 5-10 minutes and then repeat with the Clean & Jerk. After all that all clinicians were asked to work up to a heavy single in the Front Squat. We had several Personal Records in the Snatch, Clean & Jerk, and Front Squat. Thanks to all the guys whom showed up and lifted. With the proper technique and environmental motivation great lifts can be accomplished. The next one is scheduled for January 21st.
Top Female Olympic Weightlifter in the US, Sarah Robles, was in Los Angeles Thursday Nov 17th- Saturday Nov 19th taking photos for the upcoming 2012 Olympic Games in London. Sarah is the top male or female point scorer over the past 2 years at the World Championships. She has hit Personal Records in the Snatch in each of her last 3 International Competitions. Her current snatch record of 114 kilos is the second heaviest ever snatch in US Women’s Weightlifting History. Congrats Sarah! Next up the Olympic Test Event in London Dec 6-12th, 2011.

Sarah Robles Snatched 114 kilos Clean & Jerked 135 for 11th place at the World Championships. The Snatch is a 2 kilo Personal Record in Comp. Not her finest day Clean & Jerking but she and I know there is more in the tank. We are pretty sure the US Team solidified 2 women’s slots for the 2012 Olympics. Chioma Amichi Snatched 98 kilos and Clean & Jerked 140 for a much needed 238 Total. She needed to beat the Mexican and German and she pulled it off. Great job Ladies considering both of them had a bad meet at the Pan Am Games.
