It's been a year since I hit the platform, but I was lucky enough to have the opportunity this weekend. Quite honestly I couldn't have have a better day. ——– 103KG/227LBS Snatch 3KG comp PR . 135KG/297LBS Clean and jerk 15KG comp PR and 2KG life time PR . 238 PR total, previous best was 220 . First time ever going 6/6 as well. ——– Really big thank you to my boy @mikejdewar for running cards and @paulkostas for being a ride or die. And of course, the mad man himself @coachtravismash for making me hellish training in order to get rewards like this. ——– I took 3RD place for the 89KG class. 👴🏼 Coach @masheliteperformance * * * #cleanandjerk #snatch #mma #j2fitweightlifting #weightlifting #weightlifter #olympicweightlifting #olympiclifting #competeeveryday #powerjerk #splitjerk #frontsquat #squats #squat #squateveryday #powerclean #squatclean #usaw #usaweightlifting #americanopenseries2018 #crossfitweightlifting #muscles #rehband #crossfit #crossfitter #nikeweightlifting

Competed last Saturday @usa_weightlifting American Open final. This was my last meet of 2018 & it went better than I expected. Medaled bronze in the snatch & placed 4th overall. Congrats to the other 73kg competitors at this competition. Thank you to all my family, friends & teammates of @marin_heavy_athletics for their love & support leading to every competition. Special thank you to @ssevcik & @hasslefreebbc for helping us out during the competition, super appreciate it gentlemen. Lastly thank you to my coach Jasha Faye (@marin_heavy_athletics) who’s made me into the weightlifter you see today. He could’ve stayed behind when there was a lack of people from our team going to this meet. Leaving his loving family & business back home so he can travel across the country to support & coach me that weekend. Can’t thank you enough, love you coach. It means everything. I’m content with how this competition turned out but not satisfied. We’ll start training soon for the American Open Series 1 at the @arnoldsports event next year. Looking forward to that & other meets as well in 2019 📷 @liftinglife @marin_heavy_athletics #marinheavyathletics #usaweightlifting #olympicweightlifting #letsgochamp #usaw #americanopenfinals2018 #americanopenseries2018 #тяжелаяатлетика #podnoszenieciężarów

I have always thought other competitors were too serious, but maybe I'm just too goofy? Video 1: Strolling off in my dad's old winter coat (@scootek02) back stage. Video 2: Technical Official trying to mess with me by telling me @hethurrrrr didn't sign off on my attempts. Video 3: Celebration off the stage after making your opening attempt at AOF!

After 3 1/2 years, I decided to get back on the platform and compete. Didn’t hit the numbers I was hoping for but ended up winning my weight class and best female lifter! After 6 months of dedication I am blessed to be ranked in the top 5 (in the country) for my weight class! Huge shoutout to @jacksonal92 and @mjamisonsnell for coaching me through the meet! Along with @uesmpt for not only keeping me physically prepared but also mentally prepared! Y’all are the best!! And lastly, a huge thank you to @crossfitotm for putting up with me everyday and letting me use all the chalk! I appreciate all the support I’ve received from the fitfam! 🙏 #usaweightlifting #americanopenseries2018 #crossfit #olympicweightlifting #snatch #cleanandjerk #crossfitotm #girlswholiftheavy #rogue #eleikosport #olylifting #tennesseestatechampionship #grinding #platformlife #fitness #fitfam #blessed #grateful #eatcleanliftmean

Nicole has been working hard lately on all aspects of this sport, including dropping a few weight classes!! Doing that smart with our TNG Gainz program, she has held all of her strength throughout the weight loss. Traveling to Vegas and dealing with the smoke and freezing hotel rooms, she caught a little stomach bug and the day of her comp was probably the worst. We dropped her openers a bit, just to be safe, but she pulled it together and went 6 for 6 for her first time on a National stage!! Excellent work and we know there’s much more coming soon! @puglifts ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #LuckyWeLift #TeamTNG #TNGgym #TakenNotGiven #TakenNotGivenWeightlifting #LifTNGaloha @liftngaloha #weightlifting #weightlifters #oahuweightlifters #hawaiiweightlifting #usaweightlifting #yagottaeat #usaweightlifting #kilos #eleiko #snatch #cleanandjerk #americanopenseries2018 #aoseries3 #luckywelive #honolulu #weightliftinglife #sixattempts #hookgrip #ao3 #usaw #barbell #olympiclifting #weightliftingstuff

Nai had a rough start to the morning of his weigh in. See our previous posts or his highlight about how we had to cut his hair to make weight!! But we did it, with minutes to spare! He performed exactly as we wanted, ending with 6 for 6!!

Amelia lives on the Big Island and is a great representation of what TNG stands for! Hard work to earn what you want! Leading up to every competition, she questions if she should do it, and then immediately after she’s ready for the next one! We all can relate to those nerves, but she uses that adrenaline for her lifts! She went 6 for 6 for her first time on a Nationals stage!!! 👌🏾 So proud of her! @ameliaobra ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #LuckyWeLift #TeamTNG #TNGgym #TakenNotGiven #TakenNotGivenWeightlifting #LifTNGaloha @liftngaloha #weightlifting #weightlifters #oahuweightlifters #hawaiiweightlifting #usaweightlifting #yagottaeat #usaweightlifting #kilos #eleiko #snatch #cleanandjerk #americanopenseries2018 #aoseries3 #luckywelive #honolulu #weightliftinglife #sixattempts #hookgrip #ao3 #usaw #barbell #olympiclifting #weightliftingstuff

Carly has come so far lately and we couldn’t be more proud of her! She moved from Hawaii to South Carolina and had to start lifting on her own!

I didn’t make this lift, it was my last lift at 91kg. But I’m proud of it because I was in the sunken place moments before taking it. I’m pretty sure @thedangermanchronicles and @god_guns_barbells were worried about me 🤷🏼‍♀️.

American Open Series 3...what a crazy experience. Went 4/6, here’s my best snatch 123kg🥇and best cj 145kg🥉 to earn Overall🥈in 102kg Masters(35-39). Thank you everyone for their support, I definitely feel the love and am full with gratitude. LJ my coach, I love you. My team for all their support via 10,000 group messages. Bryan and Adrian for being my loaders/emotional support❤️. Brian, Colleen, Lorena, Ember, Mel, Anabel, Ryan, Aunt Debbie, and Hunter for all being there. Don and Kathie because I didn’t want Sarah’s dad to see me shit the bed. The guy announcing my session who obviously never read words before. My new friend Penny on the Medical staff for getting my body and mind right. The Thread for always calling me a douche and keeping me humble. My fellow competitors, solid weightlifters and cool dudes. And lastly my amazing girlfriend Sarah for her undying support on so many levels and for absolutely losing her mind every time I lift. Appreciate and Love you honey😘. Glad to finally take some time off, but did get a taste of blood at this one and felt the energy of good competition. Eager to come back and tear some shit up. #athleticsunited #aubarbell #barbellballistics #americanopenseries2018 #americanopenseries3 #usaw #masterweightlifting #colinfister #hookgrip #longestpostever

Now that the meet is over & I’ve had some time to reflect I’m happy I tried my best but I’m not satisfied with my performance. I need to make more than my opening weight on snatches & not press out all my jerks. . I always get sooo nervous before snatches & it doesn’t go away until I’m done with all 3 attempts. I need to figure out a way relax prior to snatching. This sport is WAY more mentally challenging than physically challenging & I need to work on my mental game more! . That being said, competing in Vegas has been an awesome experience & I’m glad I did it! 🎰🏋🏻‍♀️🎲 Thanks to everyone who helped me warm up in the back & who helped coach me! Thanks to @anna_wtcoach for always wanting the best for me & to @thelinellez for your encouragement throughout the meet & reminding me to breathe every 10 seconds (because apparently I forget to do this when nervous) 😂 . Next up is HOA! I’m switching gears to focus on Crossfit & pushing my limits at my Crossfit comp in✌🏼weeks. Getting excited to compete with a fun team! #AOSeries3 #kcweightlifting #usaw

This weekend's American Open Series 3 was an amazing experience. I had my struggles coming into it, but with the support of everyone I was able to make it there and put up a total. After missing my first two attempts in the snatch, my coach @crossfitaz and I decided to increase for the third, and I smoked it. 95kg/209lbs snatch and 108kg/238lbs clean in jerk for a 203kg total, only 10kg off my best. I'm proud of my team, and I'm proud of my performance. It's hard to go out there and not only meet your expectations but those of others, the platform is different than the training room. A year-and-a-half into the sport, I'm extremely happy with my progress and I can't wait to see what the future holds. Thank you! #doitoitpruit

BUTTERS with some butterfull lifts!!! Finishing out this weekend for the team strong with our 4th 6 for 6 performance!! So proud of him (and everyone) and now it’s onto Hawaii State Championships!!! • Repost @mikeyg808 ・・・ 6 made lifts out of 6 attempts. So many hours of training, stretching, resting, coping just for 6 minutes on a platform with just you and the weight. This may be an individual sport but I got here with the support of many: 💓@hawaiiadobo and family, my fellow @takennotgiven teammates and coaches @mvacca7 @pinkwaves013. Despite all the pains, strains and struggles, it's times like this that make us all want more.

This past weekend I had the pleasure and honor of being part of Team USA Weightlifting Medical Staff for the American Open Series 3 in Las Vegas. It consisted of three, 14 hour days, caring for over 1500 athletes, and treating over 400 of these athletes. It was an amazing experience. I used to pray for opportunities like this 🙏🏾 “Dream Big and be relentless in your pursuit, Dreams do come True” #sportsmedicine #athleticmedicine #activemedicine #teamusa #usaweightlifting #teamusaweightlifting #athletictraining #athletictrainer #usasportsmedicine #sportsscience #weightlifting #olympicweightlifting #ao3 #americanopenseries2018

I crushed yesterday!!!! Hit 84kg/185# Snatch and 105kg/231# CJ for a total of 189kg for 4th place!!! All competition PR’s but so much more in the tank. Amazing weekend with amazing friends getting to truly “play with the big girls”...but really the true hero is my husband, coach, and best friend @nordie888 who supports me 110% in all of my endeavors. Really a thank you is not enough. Being an old lady lifter with a full time job is not easy. And a huge thank you to @swarlsly for being a great friend who decides to come support me on a whim, and bring team T-shirt’s 😂. I said I was taking a break after this weekend, but now I feel on fire!🔥 I want that 200kg total. Thank you for all the support from back home! It doesn’t go unnoticed ❤️ • • • #usaweightlifting #americanopenseries2018 #lasvegas #AO3 #girlswholift #biggestlittlebarbellclub #reno #nurseswholift #transformativenursecoach @usa_weightlifting

Another #UniquelyUesaka Sighting! Congrats on your performance and thanks for supporting @uesakabarbell Repost from @darlenerose - I did a thing yesterday. Wasn’t my best performance, but it was my best for that day and I ain’t mad at it! I’m stoked! You’re always going to want to do better and you’re always going to want more... (but you also have to remember to enjoy the ride!) that’s the beauty in this sport, improving and working on yourself each and everyday. I can’t wait for the next one. Glad to be back after an unexpected setback (aren’t they always unexpected?) but so glad to be back with so many members of our team! I’ll post more about it later, but thank you to my teammates @nemesisweightlifting, coach/husband @arturofiero, @blackironnutrition and @jildalamb for working with me and getting me eating healthy, to my friends and family watching back home and the following: @usa_weightlifting @justsaiyangear @uesakanorthamerica #uniquelyuesaka @crossfitatr @_babyjax @robbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb Videos to follow. #americanopenseries2018 #ao3 #usaweightlifting #usaw #snatch #cleanandjerk #hellokitty #vegeta #saiyan #49kg

Lots of posts coming, but first I have to say thank you to my coach for believing in me and pushing me to be the best I can be. If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I am so excited for my future in weightlifting, and I am so thankful to have you there by my side through it all. Also, thank you for putting up with my crazy self🤪 I know I’m difficult to deal with, but you just shake your head and go with it. I’m just trying to keep you on your toes, really😅 You’re the best, Blake! #americanopenseries2018 #olympicweightlifting #weightlifting #usaw #mycoachiscoolerthanyours #webothfangirled

Congratulations Coach Evan!! We are so proud of you! 🏋🏻‍♂️💪🏼👏🏼👊🏼 #Repost @jlschweers09 ・・・ With a 15 lb PR @evanjohnston_ freaking did it! We’re heading to the American Open Finals this December in Milwaukee. He snatched 123kg/271 lbs and clean&jerked 162kg/356lbs for a total of 285kg/627lbs. God I am so unbelievably proud and happy to see his hard work pay off.
