Good numbers man.

Most of the "race to" threads are pretty old. You usually have to dig them up from page 5 when you've made progress, then realise you've gained 5kg in 2 years... :)

I don't think the numbers on the front page of this are up to date, maybe best to stick them on the "Oly Lifting Table" which is also in this section of the forum.

i'll update the numbers, what are the latest?

i'lladd you in too xCx, and spug, lets hear it too mate!

And no pressouts or funny business so my best will be 115 for cj - 117 was done with a pressout.

so my current total is 87.5 + 115 = 202.5 - 17.5kg left.

Had to check back on the logs (they are pretty useful, maybe should start one), have done 115 clean and jerk. Couldn't find a max snatch, but was playing about with 70kg on Wednesday so stick that down.

220kg should fall by Jan 1st 2009.

done. At least you can give some updates on this due to the low snatch unlike on other "race to..." threads.

This is true: 90 - 105 are my current PBs. Have been for more than a year actually :cry: .

Snatch to 75kg.

Putting some pressure on xCx. I suspect he will break.

both of you guys are updated now.

you know, i have a feeling, that one of these years we might actually reach this goal...

perhaps they should be nailed in the same session?

Just because of this, I'm going for a 115kg C&J on friday.

You forgot to put me up into second place though! This is an urgent matter since I might be overtaken any day by spug and/or xCx :D !
