Tamara and I spend all of Sunday rocking it at University Nationals for Olympic Weightlifting.
It was a lot of fun, and we filmed the whole thing.
Below I’ve compiled all the videos into 3 topic areas:
- Tamara (Tbone) and I get silly… very silly…
- Weightlifting Interviews
- Weightlifting Highlights
Tbone & The Iron Samurai Eat Big, So You Can Lift Big
On the way there we discuss the differences between the North West and the South, review McDonalds coffee, and make an observation about sweet tea…
For lunch we decided we needed to destroy our stomachs with fried chicken and biscuits (in a good way)… If you ever confused us for “health” professionals, this might change your mind, LOL
Finally we do a review of our experience at University Nationals over giant milk shakes…
We got a few weightlifters and coaches to do some interviews with us too!
Anthony Pomponio of The Yard weightlifting club, an amazing 85k lifter, and a good friend.
Nick Frasca, head coach of The Yard
Megan Poole and Shelbie Serpan
Christian Carter, coach at ETSU
And finally here are all the cool lifting videos we got. I wish we’d gotten more, but the ones we did get are AWESOME
Megan Poole, who lifts for ETSU and is crazy talented:
Kollin Cockrell’s 147k snatch
Colin Ito’s 143k snatch
Kollin Cockrell’s 186 kg clean and jerk
Ian Wilson – all 6 lifts
Caleb Ward – aka, The Zen Master – aka, Caleb Freakin’ Ward!
Our friend Rebecca Gerdon’s 81 kg clean and jerk, yay!
