    I agree with not picking on the way these kids look. They need a good coach that will teach them proper technique and good form. They need a solid foundation and strength level before they start...

    I did the same thing. It's amazing what some adrenaline will do. I pulled 523 on my 3rd attempt at my first meet a couple weeks ago and thought it was going to be heavy. It went up just as fast as...
