Some good lifting from Potchefstroom

As usually when the GT Group is on a training camp we get some good personal records both in throwing and also in various lifting exercises.

  • Marcus has done a 1RM PB’s in deadlift, back squats as well as bench press.
  • Simon did a PB in bench press.
  • Fanny did a three rep PB in Push Press.
  • Jakob did a five rep PB in front squats.
  • Martin did a three rep PB in back squats.
  • Daniel did a tree rep PB in bench press.
  • Kristo does not need any PB’s as his strength is so good but is doing well in the weight room as usually.
  • Our friend that is here with us Rait Sinijärv did a three rep PB in the clean as well.

So, we are little bit more than half through the camp and it is going really well. Everybody is working hard in the heat here and throwing and lifting better and better.

Here down under are some lifting videos from this week. Enjoy it!
