Congrats @nathan_kersey on finishing second in his session. He matched his best snatch and PRd his CnJ by 6 kilos!!! This was also his first time attempting anything in the hundreds as we skipped 100 and went for 101! Really awesome milestone and this was his birthday weekend! He ends his youth career on a high note and can't say enough how proud i am with his performance today! Great Job @nathan_kersey!!! See you back home! #18NYC

So much going on for our weightlifting team this weekend that we are spread thin... But just want to acknowledge one of our original and loyal athletes that started before we existed as LBW... Christian @nerdyboy06... Congrats on finishing high school! You were a freshman when you first stepped into our gym and now you're moving onto the beginning chapters as an adult. @coach.toph is proud of you! Wish we can celebrate as a team but we will when we get back!!! Thanks team for taking care of our big kid! Have a great celebration!

Check-in day for Sal and Last training day before she lifts tomorrow evening! Stay tuned soon for final schedule! @310livn_cpt
It's go time tomorrow evening! #18YouthNationals
Not only is this Sal's first Youth Nationals, but this is her first time flying! She just landed in Detroit with her dad, @310livn_cpt and now waiting for @coach.toph to arrive!!! Don't forget she lifts this Friday night at 5pm Pacific!!!
I gotta say that I thoroughly enjoy working with these kids at @longbeachweightlifting!!! Both had zero weightlifting experience when they first came in! #ProudCoach ○○○
We like to provide a fun working environment for our youth athletes. We do lots of technical drills and we recognize intensity, load, and volume. Safety is our priority while having a great time!
Sal first started lifting at the age of 10, early 2017 and qualified herself to this year's #18YouthNationals at our #SummertimeInTheLBwC2017 meet. She's 11 now and making her nationals debut this coming Friday! #onlyTheBeginning
@nathan_kersey is reaching youth nationals for his second year in a row and also qualified in less than a year of training with us after first starting. He's one of our outstanding student athletes taking advantage of our student discounts! (B or better, but he's an A student) He is 16 but lifting in his last youth nationals as a 17 year old due to calendar year rules. Next step is junior nationals but let's get through this week first! Next Sunday he lifts! We're going to Grand Rapids, Michigan! He wants to race me at the lake! Let's see who wins!
Please stay tuned for the final schedule Thursday night!
