Coach Brian (pictured in video at right) emailed last night: “225# with the new plates, for my 22nd bday tomorrow. 🙂 then followed it up with “it is pretty slow, sadly” to which I thought, “Would that we were all as slow as you are, Brian.” I then asked him what his current bodyweight is and PR snatch is. (Current body weight: 155-160#, PR snatch: 265#.) He also mentioned: “LOL tell them that if I can lower that weight, they can too.”
