We now have over 170 members at Cougars and some nights we have 60 people training at one time – this obviously makes it hard to give everybody the time I would like to give them.
On those nights my priorities are the U20 year old lifters and the people that are Australian Reps and especially the new U15 TID lifters that are learning the movements.
If anybody is not happy with the attention they are getting – PLEASE CONTACT ME – and I will try and work something out
Also if i forget your name or get it wrong please forgive me I struggled with remembering peoples names when we had 40 at the club – there is no hope for me now there are 170 !
Everybody should be recording PB’s for all lifts and assistance exercises for 5, 3,2,1 reps – this enables you to aim for new PB’s even by 1 Kg and get something out of every session.
U15 and U17 Comp
James Norman U17 69Kg Class 118Kg
I was very pleased with the results in the comp – especially with James who started on his PB Clean and Jerk and pulled out an 8kg PB to beat Josh for best lifter
Harry – 50, 70 at 56Kg 12kg PB and Best U15 lifter
James – 78, 118 at 69 and Best U17 lifter with a huge 8Kg PB in the Jerk
Josh Mak – 62. 73 at 69 and an 8kg PB
James Catlow-Elliott 43, 56 at 56 – 6kg PB
Ethan Catlow-Elliott 39, 47 at 56
Josh Wu 79, 102 at 62 – recovering from injury
It was great to see so many new lifters and new masters compete at the JME
and so many people come down and help and support.
It was nice to see Jett enjoying his first Comp
Harry pulled out a nice PB Snatch and just could not hold a new PB Clean and Jerk of 71 above his head
Josh did a great snatch of 64 and just pressed out 75 CJ
David did a huge PB of 35 on his total
Jo pulled out a great Clean and Jerk of 70 and its was good to see Danni get 6/6 in her first Comp.
The guys from Crossfit Desire overcame a case of the “I am not going to lift in a comp until I am good” fear and put in a great initial comp – and there is much more in them both.
The last session saw Andrea Miller (now lifting for NZ) get a NZ A grade and qualifying total for Commonwealth Championships in Penang of 70, 95 – 165 at 66kg bodyweight
This also saw her ranked 4th in the NZ female Sinclair rankings.
