Olympic Lifting Total

On Sat, Feb 19, 2011 we held an Olympic Weightlifting meet at MBS.

Olympic Weightlifting is one of the oldest sports in the Olympics. It is composed of two events: the Snatch, and the Clean & Jerk. There are formal rules on what constitutes a good lift, a timing clock, judges, etc.

The athlete gets three attempts at the Snatch and three attempts at Clean & Jerk.

On this day my attempts were:
85 lbs - Good
95 lbs - Fail. substantial press out at the top
95 lbs - Good. PR

Clean & Jerk:
110 lbs - Good
120 lbs - Fail. press out at top
120 lbs - Good. PR

Adding the two numbers together results in your
"Olympic Total" 215 lbs PR
