Kneebola still active, so power snatch waves it is

Found out this morning there's offices below the gym... So I've been giving everyone a nice 8am start 🌚🌚🌚 #weightlifting #NSGAthlete #neverstopgrindin #rgu #rguwc #aberdeenweightlifting

Buzzed to see a pic I took made its way into the paper (Top left feat. @sam.edgar)
I’m very pleased strength sports are gaining more exposure and folks (like me) who aren’t too fussed about the traditional PE exercises, have found their niche in lifting weights😁

First time using my knee without excruciating pain in near enough 10 weeks. Pls let there be no more injuries this year
First time in the refurbed Asv feat. BYOP (bring your own plates) because there are no plates smaller than 5kg 🤷‍♀️
Can't say I'm overly fussed about the disco lighting either, seems a bit much imo

⚠️Incoming 3 solid posts of comp spam ⚠️ so mute now if this isn't your bag
Livestream perspective:
🍇It went OK, a bit glitchy at times. I've whittled the problems down to 3 possibilities-bandwidth, livestream software, software-fb compatibility.
🍋 There was a significant lag of 30-45s from real-time.
🥒It would be cool if I could include an attempts screen(but that adds to the bandwidth issue coz more data being sent) 🤔
🥑The stream was fairly autonomous, leaving me to handle and ref without too much to worry about
🥐It drove a lot of traffic to WLS and increased visibility of the sport😁

I've been fiddling with camera and lights to be able to lower the shutter speed without comprising pic quality and used @byberella as my test subject because I know who he is and hopefully won't mind me posting this pic👌

I like it when I can catch moments like these

When that few days turned into a few weeks 😬
I have much to learn in the photography field as almost every photo from Juniors was grossly underexposed (despite looking ok on the camera screen), making for a lot of time editing 
May have to go full pseudo-photographer and bring lights for any future underlit areas so I can keep the high shutter speed to catch the moment. I always worry flash will be distracting hence why I don’t use it

Went down to the SP Juniors last weekend to support the lovely @sam.edgar #nobomb 
I also took the opportunity to practise my camera skills and capture all the glorious lifting faces 
I’ve sent along a Dropbox link to @scottishpowerlifting for the Ladies (Men to follow in a few days), so if you ask nicely they may post it in the members chat ☺️

I finally made it!
After starting my degree in Medical Chemistry in 2010, dropping out in 2014 and returning in 2016 for Business Management - a whole 9 years later after general life pish of chronic mental illness- which at its worst caused me to be hospitalised and  tbh the routine of weightlifting (which is why I first started it) is what helped me get over the worst of it, and some more life pish of my dad dying, which was the worst thing I've ever had to witness.
I came away with a 2:1, Colours for service to the Weightlifting Club and some Scottish records. 
So why am I doing this post? In aide of #nowrongpath
Social media is rose-tinted glasses: only ever shows the good bits.
Just because you didn't make it the first time round, University, exam grades, job rejection, doesn't make it the end. It's quite a bit harder, I'll give you that, but keep chipping away at it and it'll happen.

I've been giving extra attention to glutes to use them during squats and my knees are caving in less
