Being a Female Olympic Weightlifter

As a female lifter I have to take many things into consideration for competitions, like having your “monthly cycle” on the day of an important competition! Today I had the Ontario Junior Championships and it didn’t go as well as I would have liked.

For the last few weeks I was having great training sessions and thought I had this competition in the bag.

But I thought wrong!

Days leading up to the competition mother nature decided it was the perfect time to bless me with her gift.

I have noticed around this time I get weaker, my strength dips and my performance decreases.

Today I learned you have to roll with the punches, no matter what life throws at you.
