day 2017 – blister pains

if i’m going to enjoy the gains of olympic lifting, i’ll also have to endure the pains of it. olympic lifting is fulfilling and rewarding in many ways, but one of the biggest lifters problem is calluses and blisters. as much as i try to use hook grip, it’s just not a position my once broken thumb can ever go into again let alone handle the load. as i finished my snatching session, my hands are in blistering pain because there’s one on each hand. until it dies down, i’ll bear it with no pain no gain in mind
