Hackney lifter, Joe Kelly @joedkel competed in 85kg Class at the LSE Series 2 at Crystal Palace over the weekend under the guidance of his coaches Amelia and Pat. Lifting 92kg Snatch and 120kg Clean & Jerk for a 212kg Total, he got personal bests (PBs) in all his lifts and narrowly missed out on a Bronze Medal in his group. 

Joe Kelly—92kg Snatch

Joe Kelly—120kg Clean & Jerk

Joe had the following to say about his experience so far at HWLC:

'I started lifting in HWLC less than two years ago and apart from the great atmosphere and friends that I have made, I have been given coaching in weightlifting technique and a personally tailored training programme that works.

These foundations in the sport have allowed me to progress with my lifting without taking any shortcuts and I have seen consistent improvement in my technique and numbers.

I would recommend anybody who is interested in starting the sport to find a place like HWLC where you can learn the foundations in the correct manner, but also to any intermediate or advanced lifter that wants to compete seriously then this is the place to come to give you the right attitude and tools to progress consistently!'
