Lady’s what lift ๐Ÿ˜Š

On Saturday I decided to tag along to support my ladies Anne,Rachel and Yvonne in the Weightlifting Ireland Ladies Open Championship held in Capital Gym in Dublin. The ladies represent Phoenix Strength and Conditioning in Clonmel. For those that haven’t a clue what happens in anย olympic weightlifting comp..they have to do two moves 1) the snatch and 2) the clean and jerk. I won’t try to explain them but basically both involve them throwing (huge) weight over your heads! You get three attempts at each and you kinda aim to get higher weight each time๐Ÿ˜Š

These ladies are an inspiration- here are some pics I took of them doing their thing ๐Ÿ˜Š remember I’m no professional photographer, these are just for fun! ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Oh and if you wanna train like these ladies check out it’s not all weightlifting, these ladies follow a training plan specifically for this; mere mortals like you and me can be happy with cardio and lighter weights if we decide to get off the couch ๐Ÿ˜‚

Well done ladies you aced it you legends,

Watching ye made me tired, Im off for a nap ๐Ÿ˜›
