Athlete of the Month: Adi Lakhani

Adi is Rx Weightlifting Club’s resident PR machine! Since the start of the stay-at-home order, Adi has been placed on some basic strength cycles by Coach Cheng and it has really been showing its results!

His front squat went up by a massive 20kg from 90kg in the summer to 110kg in February! The best part is, Adi will stop at nothing to get those PRs, even if it means sacrificing his own furniture to do it. Just ask to see what his TV looked like after PRing his Push Press by 6kg/13lbs. Maybe even more incredibly, Adi has also been making a ton of technical improvements to his Olympic Lifts as well. His snatch is now at 75kg/155lbs, his clean and jerk is at 95kg/209lbs, AND he brought his clean into the triple digits to 100kg/220lbs! Don’t ask me how he did it, all I do is give him the programming, while he’s the guy who’s actually putting in all of the work! Shockingly, he has not yet received a noise complaint from his neighbors from all the weight he’s been slinging around. For what it’s worth, Adi is hogging all of the quarantine PRs, but at least we still have our own intact furniture. Well done Adi! Keep up the good work!
