Just an excerpt from May 21st. Rachael weighs 53 kg. Sorry for the day late posting!
Just showing a video of Colleena and Leeana’s snatches from yesterday; trying to be a little different by showing all of the warmups leading up to the working weight, be sure to let us know how you like it!
Rachael Bommicino (53 kg) recently worked up to a couple of singles with 75 kgs; her best is 85, so we’re thinking she’s good for more pretty soon.
