A different kind of competition
On Sunday I'll be participating in my second USA Weightlifting competition. Here are the details: http://teamcrossfitacademy.com/?page_id=3057
I have three opportunities to clean and jerk and then to snatch as much weight as I can. My score is the combined totals of all of these lifts. I am competing against everyone else in my weight class, which last time was me. So maybe it's not so different from grappling competitions.
But it is a pretty low-stakes situation for me, and it's a good opportunity to practice the lifts while dealing with nerves. It's gonna be fun!
