Today’s topic: my preparation and training for the 2019 Junior Weightlifting Nationals.
I have only been weightlifting for a little over a year and I have already plateaued.
I was a bit hesitant I write this blog post because as a eating disorder survivor, I know how easily comparison can lead to a relapse or a downward spiral into restriction.
What an experience. Words can hardly describe how incredible this moment was. A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to compete at the 2018 Junior Weightlifting Nationals in Spokane, WA.
From my last competition in October, this one felt so far away but it came up before I knew it.
Last week I competed at a semi-local competition. It was hosted by coach’s former coach. I’ll have more on that competition later – but for now here is a little training update on what my current maxes/what my training has looked like for the past few months.
For those of you that didn’t know, I competed in a local weightlifting competition on October 14th.
