  1. Hi Lindsey!
    Thanks for posting this. I just transitioned from CrossFit to weightlifting and competed in my first meet. You have inspired me greatly. I aspire to one day lift with the finesse and aggression you do.
    Good luck at Nationals,

    1. Thank you Monica, thats very sweet of you! I'm glad I can aspire other women to want to be strong and enjoy the sport of weightlifting. If you don't mind me asking, where is it that you're currently training your lifts now and how was your first meet experience?!?! :D
