Mattie Rogers just blew up the weightlifting world. Rogers posted a video of her jerking 145kg from the blocks during training yesterday. That is 319 pounds!
Rogers’ Senior American Record Clean & Jerk is 134kg set this past May at the 2017 USAW National Championships in Chicago, IL.
She also did some high block cleans (or as Mattie called them, “high high stupid high block cleans”) yesterday as well. Rogers worked up to 133kg!
Well I guess it’s safe to say block week is goin kinda well 🙃 high high stupid high block cleans for some heavy dubs and into some singles up to 133kg/293lbs & lots of jerks up to 140kg/308lbs for a double and a bonus round heavier single cause why not ya know ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ SOO grateful to be feeling healthy and strong again.

These lifts are impressive, but even more so when you consider Rogers was dealing with some back issues back in July heading into the 2017 Pan American Championships. It appears that she is feeling healthy once again and adding kilos to her lifts.
