Today I hope on the scale after a while off of it, and to my suprrise I am tipping the scale at a robust, heatlhy and jiggly 105.7kg. 233lbs or so.
Hardly makes me anything compared to some of the guys tipping 300, but by Oly weightlifting standards, I am a SHW. Coming back from injury I have never felt this large strong and powerful. I'm close to 20 pounds heavier than when I last snatched yet I am pulling with great speed than ever before.
This now throws into serious question and talks between me and my coach as to whether I am destined for the superheavy path, or if I will shed this off and remain at my normal midrange heavyweight.
I have quite mixed feelings, the superheavies are a very different breed of people, requires different training, different pulling techniques, not to mention I would need to eat my way to well over 300 to have a flying chance in hell at doing anything internationally. On the other hand, the amount of food I eat makes me perfect for the job.
Thought I would share with some of you guys! In the meantime, I'm eating like normal.
