Not bad for a skinny bitch :P

Your stance is ridiculously narrow! What happened to good ol' sumo? Decided to change it up?
I have always wanted to try narrow stance, what are your thoughts on it?

I always pull with both styles in training. I actually prefer to pull conventional for most of my training though. I am trying to get my conventional up higher and perhaps turn it into my competition stance. I think you should definitely use both conventional and sumo in your training. Worse case scenario you will work your weaknesses, even if you can't lift the same amount.

Lou always preaches the same thing. Actually I've seen chuck open with conventional and take second with sumo before haha. I wouldn't recommend that though in a meet. But back to the topic, pulling to your weaknesses is a very smart thing to do

I love watching your vids Chris. It really shows that you don't need to be a massive freak to lift freaky weight. Are you one of the stronger people in your weight class?

Thanks for calling me tiny...again. :(

I do well in local and state meets. As far as the big picture, I'd call myself average at best. You have freaks like Kutcher, Conyers, Schwab, Caslow and a bunch more putting up ridiculous totals in the lightweight divisions. I have a lot more work to do to get to that level.

But the truth is---you will attain that level...With GOD all things are possible...

Consider it a compliment! I would love to do well in local meets and possibly provincials, but I as well have a lot of work!

Chris, your totals are amazing. 1540 at 165 is pretty freakish if you ask me. I'd love to get to that number at 200.
