Milestone

I push pressed 170 today.  This is the first time that I’ve taken a bar, loaded to weigh more than I do, and put it at arm’s length overhead.  (I could probably have split jerked bodyweight a month or two ago, but my gym doesn’t have bumper plates so I’ve been neglecting the quick lifts.)  The bar didn’t go up pretty — it stalled at about head height for a couple of seconds — but it went up all the way.  (And then I deadlifted.  Good times.)

Next milestone: 225, maybe in a year or two.  After that, with any luck, I’ll find a proper Olympic lifting gym and can start working on snatching bodyweight.

    Could’ve sworn I hit post the first time by today, but since it doesn’t seem to have taken, let me repeat:

    Nice!!
