New World Record
Oh, just so you know. This girl can probably outlift everyone on this board pound-for pound (or kilogram-for-kilogram). Prove me wrong, please.
She weighs 127.6 lbs, and has a 313.5 clean and jerk along with a 247.5 snatch for a 561 total. Can you say new world record?

The snatch by Dr. Squat
Quote by ex-marine Dr. Fred Hatfield (aka Dr. Squat) with explanation of a snatch.
"In the snatch, the weight is pulled from the floor to an overhead position in one explosive motion. In contrast, the clean & jerk is a two part lift where the weight is pulled from the floor, staying "clean" of the body (that's where the phrase came from back in the old days; nowadays, it's OK to brush the thighs on the way up), to a position where it is resting on the shoulders. The lifter then thrusts ("jerks") the weight overhead, using his legs in the upward thrust, and (after taking his feet off the floor) his arms in the downward thrust of his body to lockout.
Pound for pound, Olympic weightlifters have a greater level of speed-strength than any other class of athletes in all of sport. This fact was made very clear during a massive scientific expedition carried out on the athletes at the Mexico City Olympics in 1964."
Check out the video of his 1014 lb squat.

reading this post does nothing for motivation or self esteem. at least i don't do those lifts so i'll pretend i can lift more weight than that.
