A Note From Coach Yosh about the Baystate Games
The BayState Games are quickly approaching, and one of the events they will host again this Summer is their Olympic Weightlifting Meet. I wanted to take a moment to hopefully encourage some of you to compete! This is a really great event held at UMASS Boston’s Athletic Center on Saturday July 21st & Sunday July 22nd.
The added bonus of this event is that you are not required to be an active USA Weightlifting Member to compete, so it’s perfect for just about any level of experience. For those unfamiliar with how a Weightlifting Meet runs, you are basically allowed 3 attempts at your max Snatch and Clean&Jerk. So for those interested in testing new 1RMs, or just looking to lift heavy, you have a perfect opportunity.
If you are even somewhat interested in this, or have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. It’d be awesome to get a group of us to go represent CrossFit Southie!
