Today we host the last 41° Weightlifting Club Olympic Weightlifting Competition for 2014. Weigh in at 9am, lifting starts at 10am. Come on down to support the lifters.



Yesterday the team took on CrossFit Hutt Valley. They came away with another win, but will have to wait for the full results in the next couple of days to see how they did overall. Congrats to all those who played in the matches, you represented MaD well and it was great to watch your team work and camaraderie.

Injury can be a choice

I’m just getting over a minor shoulder injury that meant I had to miss a couple of weeks of proper training.  The injury was because I made a choice to squat snatch a decent load at pace, with some immobile shoulders, and an incomplete warmup, and then I made the choice to compete at less than 100%, aggravating it further ………thus the tweak in my shoulder is my fault entirely, not the barbell, or the snatch exercise itself.

Dmitry Klokov talks about the barbells that the lifters will be using today.
