Just a reminder that this Saturday is Colin’s weight-lifting meet at CrossFit Generation. Colin hates the spotlight just like me so, lets make sure we have a nice crew out there to support him.
If you’ve never been to a meet before, its very different than a CrossFit Competition. First off, there are only two lifts that you’ll see, the snatch and the clean and jerk. Lifters will go one at a time and have three attempts at each lift, in an effort to achieve the highest total (snatch + CJ). Lifters are segregated into weight classes so body weight is a factor here unlike CF competitions.
Colin is in the big boy division and lifts at 6:30pm. This is helpful, since you don’t have to dedicate the whole day to watching people you don’t know. Although, that is a good way to get to know and understand the sport itself. If you can make it out to watch for a while, we’ll see you there!
