    The European weightlifting championships were a couple of months ago (all in prep for the Olympics in London next summer)…..here is a link for the 85kg snatch (187lbs+): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X582BVJeGBU (If you watch just one lift, watch the one at 20:07 – this kid took the silver medal–he’s ridiculously fast under the bar – he’s moving 365 lbs! If you watch the lifter at 17:02, that kid took the gold medal)

    Clean and jerk for the same weight class: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VNk0nLuIJ8&feature=related

    Both videos are pretty long, but they are cool because they show the lift, then in slow-mo and break it down. The 85kg class are dudes that weigh 187 lbs – 205 lbs., and they are lifting 155kg. = 341 lbs. +.

    115# power cleans, 13:18 (single unders x4)

    The ranks were thin this morning at the rooster class. As I was concerned about everyone I did some research and discovered today is National Nude Day, which of course brings a whole new meaning to the minimus movement.

    No doubt this is the reason for the light turnout as I am sure everyone who was absent is celebrating in their own unique way. Fitness Lokey has assured me that he will post some interesting planking photos in honor of this special day.

    And Paukune — don’t forget the sunblock.

    I want to see a vid of someone volunteering to bail at the bottom of a heavy back squat.

    Anybody, anybody…?

    Ryan, I was not witness to above referenced picture, but you may want to wipe down your desk and chair when you get back.

    Ronin. You could have seen me bail with 265 yesterday, had you been there.
