“Weightlifting has taught me a lot in life and has turned me into the person I am today.” – D’Angelo Osorio
I started weightlifting because I saw a group of guys in my old gym throwing weights over their heads and I thought it looked cool. After watching a view YouTube videos on the classic lifts, I was hooked.
At first, there was a linear progression with my lifts. Each week, I would get stronger and stronger.
I even remember calculating that at the rate that I was currently progressing, I could “in-theory” be a world-class lifter in a few years – LOL!
I was very wrong. I suck at weightlifting. I am not competitively strong by any standards, and my technique always needs work. As a hobby, it’s challenging, grueling, and unforgiving. But that’s why I like it.
