This video shows Mattie Rogers’ Clean and Jerk PR from 4 years ago when she 17.

“In case anyone needs a good laugh today…. :,) Legs pls Ass pls Seizure lifting pls. But in all seriousness, this just shows what time and effort can do. I did not start “already good”. I was not built for this sport by any means (5’7” 123lbs in this vid ok alright ok). I was not graceful, powerful, not even fully mobile in the right places even though I was a gymnast. I was so uncomfortable & awkward under the bar like everyone else in the beginning. I got pinned at the bottom of cleans daily for the first FEW YEARS. But I did and continue to put forth all of my effort. Never underestimate what raw, dedicated hard fucking work can do.”
