Tommy Kono on weight and how it impacts totals in Olympic lifting:

Quote:
The fastest increase in totals continues on the average for 8 years, following which progress slows down. How long totals will continue to grow depends on the weight class of the athlete from 11 to 16 years. The heavier the weight class, the longer totals continue to grow.
Quote:
A significant increase in bodyweight (over 6 pounds) cuts short the growth of results in the 8th year of training, on average. The transition from one weight category to another should be accomplished at the right time (say after 6 or 7 years of regular training or earlier).
