Weight Lift Personal Goal Achievement

Today Tra successfully deadlifted her own bodyweight, plus.

To say I am delighted alongside her would be a massive understatement!

Today she was 3.75kgs away from lifting her bodyweight, which was scheduled to be completed last week, but due to a flare up in Tras condition, and my having Manflu, she was unable to make her attempt.

Today however, after I was about to load the bar for Nigel for his next lift, which had more than the weight Tra was going to attempt next time around, she stopped me dead and told me she wanted to make an attempt! How could I refuse!

After feeling the weight in order to focus on the lift, she moved it from the floor by a few inches, then a few inches more, turned to me, gave me a cheeky grin, and the look of someone who was determined to succeed!

She then walked to the bar, knowing this was way out of what she had initially set herself, got positioned, total silence, but for her breathing, and the clock ticking, she readied herself.

Movement, breath, strong legs rocked back on their heels, arms locked, shoulders back, head square, up that weight went, she did it!!!! 
Applause, high fives, a look on her face which was a mixture of relief, ecstasy, and one of, “Have I really just lifted that amount of weight?!”

Determination, will, focus, hard graft, and the building of lean hard muscle, all contributed to Tras eventual success in the goal she had set herself. I am so proud of where she has got to, to have been a part of her journey, and to have witnessed first-hand the successful lift, was indeed an absolute joy.

More to come Tra Mc Nichol!!
