Nice to see some body recomp progress.
I will upload some pics when I've hit my weight goal. Have another 12 pounds to gain which I'm aiming to hit it around summer.
Went to the meet yesterday. Didn't get any good video and I only stayed for bench anyway, so not much to show. Squats and deadlifts are much more fun to watch imo.
What really surprised me was how many people was there, both in terms of lifters and spectators, esp for a club in smaller city.
When you only lift at a regular "fitness gym" you forget that there actually is people out there who trains seriously for strength, or at least I missed it.
Maybe the situation is different in the states, but in Sweden you pretty much never meet anyone who competes in strength sports in their free time. I think we have the highest rates of people caring about their health and fitness in the world, but thats not the same thing. Still, we have a lot of good lifters in the country when you look into it.
Just at this small local meet, there were 10+ guys who benched over three plates and deadlifted in the 600s. One girl got 250 on the bench, equipped though, but still very impressive.
I understand its a very niche interest but its cool to me that some old guy is handling the speaker thing and another dude is giving the signals for each lift, probably with no compensation and on their free time.
