Quite possibly the greatest game conceived by man. Only in a Michael Jackson game is there a dance button, which turns out to be a power move. Had a great time celebrating Dino's birthday!
@alexolshannikov @spencerirvin makes me want to see the movie now.
One of my many pulls at 265 from a couple of weeks ago. Ended up making the jerk after about seven attempts. Too bad no one got that one in slo-mo.
As the great #davechappelle once said, everything looks better in slow motion. 🎥-@alexolshannikov
When you have a three hour training session, you hope someone puts it to epic music. Volume up to hear the #greek war yell.
Weightlifting is tough. Dimitri hits a 10 lb PR clean & jerk at 265 after missing it five times before. Then he improves his clean PR to 275 after some technical and mental adjustment.

Super late post from last week. Hit 185 on snatch, a huge 15lb PR from last week! May get to two pizzas pretty soon. Cleans went well, but switched back to power jerks for a bit. Failed thrice at 240. A bit frustrated, but I know it'll work out.
170 from this week vs last week. Last week caught it, but was falling, so bailed. This week, bar flew up. Once I get better at dropping underneath, we'll be rolling. @kratosstrengthsystems
