Double Body Weight Deadlift for 3 at 13 Years Old
It was another good week at Total Health Performance with many people achieving great results. We had people hitting PB's and others reaching goals of 30kg of body weight lost. One thing that stuck out for me though was Darcy deadlifting 115kg for 3 reps. She is still only 13 years old and weighs 57kg. So she has now pulled double her body weight for reps.
This was her first deadlift from the floor for this cycle as last cycle I had her performing them from a podium. The carry over seems to have worked well. In saying this, next week we will not be going for a heavier load. We will be going back down to 105 or 107.5kg. It is important for her not to lift maximally at a young age and this was getting very close to that point.
I have spoken about Darcy and her athletic abilities many times in the past. She is going from strength to strength because she is focused and loves what she is doing. Its great seeing her progress along with the rest of the gym.
