And that, my friends, sums up lifting.

Words can't describe how great that is!!!

Talk about having to have the balance perfectly weighed up and she's using mixed grip which would slightly throw the balance off-centre. :rockon:

How much is that on the bar, can anyone tell by looking at the plates?

Not sure. I think this is from a meet today so perhaps we can find out her name and do some digging...

Looks like Ivanko plates:

Each is 55 pds, plus smaller 5.5 plates, plus a 45 bar = 166 pds (that's just a guess)
