Extremely proud of these three ladies that I have the privilege to coach @eitapaea @mkonui @elliegranger13 - all three competed today and put in great performances that they can be proud of. We’ve been working a ton on composure, self belief, being strong in the right areas, having faith in their own abilities and keeping things simple. It’s been a good block of training for these champs and I’m stoked with their progress. Keep up the good work Champs - keep working hard #teamdanomyte #proudcoach #trainhard #competeeasy #teamobc #anythingispossible

It was a good round of lifting at our club comp today. Congratulations to all lifters on their performances - no doubt they will go back to training hard for the next one. Congrats to Fritha, Darren and Ryan on qualifying for the NZ Masters Nationals where they will join @eitapaea and @mkonui travelling down to Wellington for the Nationals. We are grateful to our volunteers (Flo - referee, Adam, Ardi, Callum and Dana - loaders) for helping us run the competition #grateful Keep up the good work all #TeamOBC #trainhard #competeeasy
Big session for our monthly club competition tomorrow. We will be going live on our Facebook page starting the live stream just before 10am. All the best to all the lifters #teamobc #trainhard #competeeasy
Wishing @elliegranger13 the best of luck as she competes at the @nzfitnessexpo Olympic Weightlifting Invitational tomorrow hosted by @olympicweightliftingnz.

Massive good luck from us all Ellie - massive thanks to @jamesgranger5 on working Ellie’s corner tomorrow #TeamOBC #trainhard #competeeasy
What can I do to convinced this beauty @sandeeandmaui (avid MTB biker) to attend #obc2019lv ? Do I need 100 votes to get her approval? 🤔 there’s no easy tasks, but to invite... Thanks #teamobc for giving me opportunity to scout out. NOTE: I did have her permission to steal her pics. 😬 #hammerandcycle #hammerandcyclecali #hammerandcyclebc #obc #rideobc2019 #mtbgirls
La derrota no es el peor de los fracasos. No intentarlo es el verdadero fracaso. #TeamOBC #TeamBarberBombing
PR set of 5 back squats at 189kg/415lbs. I was gonna rest today but the itch was just too strong so I gave in. I’m not in shape to be going for 5s so I’ll pay for this big time tomorrow but YOLO right. #weightlifting #squats #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #fitness #workharder #teamOBC #sorefortherestofmylife

115kg/253lb snatch and 155kg/341lb clean and jerk from yesterday’s competition. Weighed in at 99kg... the lightest I have been in 2 years!! Really happy with this for my first one but definitely hungry for more. Great time as always with #teamOBC .

114kg/250lb snatch and a 134kg/295lb power clean and jerk. Last lifting session before Saturday’s competition. A bit sloppy but feeling fast and strong! #weightlifting #snatch #cleanandjerk #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #fitness #teamOBC

Coach @dannynemani attempted to pull a 45-tonne Hercules C-130, @elliegranger13 placed 4th in the 63kg class at the NZ Weightlifting National Champs And @aoteafrandi placed 5th in the 90kg class.

Following the program consistently is more important than the program. Awesome lift by @manpreet_singh1985 hitting a 10kg PB deadlift at 220kg. Manny is deep in to his prep for the NZ Log Lift & Deadlift Champs held at @crossfitotara on Aug 11th. @newzealandstrongmanseries #teamobc #trainhard #competeeasy
Quando te conheci tinhas acabado de completar maioridade, eu ainda não fazia idéia da cumplicidade que nasceria e se fortificaria entre nós... Me viste nascer e acompanhas meus passos desde então, testemunhastes quedas, choros, conquistas e vitórias... Proporcionastes a mim uma formação em base sólida, mestres que se tornaram amigos, amigos que se tornaram irmãos, me formastes cidadã. Hoje, no dia em que completas 54 anos eu não estou aí pra te abraçar, mas tenho a imensa honra de estar fora de casa acompanhando a seleção que leva no peito a tua bandeira e que perde a voz gritando orgulhosamente teu nome. Parabéns Balneário Camboriú, és meu berço, és minha casa, és minha mãe!!! #aniversáriobalneáriocamboriú #bc54anos #niverBC #minhacidadefazanos #orgulhonativo #teamoBc #teamBC #TORCIDABC #prefeituradebalneáriocamboriú

A few good lifts from training yesterday as the team starts a new program block - it’s 4-weeks of a bit of skill work and a bit of power work.

Massive congrats to @elliegranger13 on placing a credible 4th at the recent Oceania Weightlifting Champs held in New Caledonia 🇳🇨 She lifted 70kg snatch and 84kg CJ in a tough class to place 4th by 1kg.

Huge thank you to NZ coaching staff who did a tremendous job with Ellie, giving her their 100% in her second International of her short Weightlifting career. Onwards and upwards from here - let’s go Ellie!!! #teamobc #trainhard #competeeasy #oceanias2018
It was a good hit out for our 5th club comp of 2018 - we had a good turn out on a really cold Saturday morning. It was great to have Lyndsey, Serenity, Deepa and Darren join us in our club comp.

Good hit out team! Everyone lifted some good weight in the 95%-100% range - Ellie hitting 90kg CJ easy enough and a close miss at 92kg - not much hype in this heavy session - just concentration and focus.

Good work tonight team - everyone is working on their technique, positions and cues. Eni and Molly start a block of work on perfecting key positions in the lifts - so there’s a bunch of holds and pauses. And Ellie is into her final few weeks of heavy training before tapering for the Senior Oceania Champs. Good work guys. We are 4-weeks out from our next Club competition held on Sat 30th of June - more info out soon #teamobc #trainhard #competeeasy

All the best @taniahodges123 @mkonui and @etitapaea Also huge congrats to Tania on being selected to the NZ A-team and Molly and Eni on being selected to the NZ B-Team - massive achievement for you three. We’ll link the live stream on our Facebook page #teamobc #trainhard #competeeasy #masterssquad
Good work tonight team - everyone getting work done and working on their technique. Good work from Eni as she puts in her last session in before the Oceania Masters Champs in Melbourne held this weekend- looking sharp Eni #teamobc #trainhard #competeeasy
We had a small turn out at our club comp yesterday but with some of the best results. The 4 lifters put on a great show for the audience. Natasha CRANMER (OWNZ) had a blinder of a comp going 6 for 6, setting PBs, breaking 8 x NZ Masters Records (40-44, 63kg) and breaking the 200 Sinclair points mark!!! Great lifting Tash - great to have you join us. The OBC lifters had a good day in the office too - @elliegranger13 hit solid numbers in her prep for the Senior Oceanias, @lawrence_scott went 6 for 6 and hits PBs and Sione hit good numbers in his first comp of year - hitting comp PBs and was just 3kgs under hitting the A-Grade total for the 105s. Great lifting to the 4 lifters, grateful to Dana, Caine and Nikki for loading and for Molly, Mihi and James for refereeing our comp. Keep up the good work all. Keep an eye out for our comp next month (Sat 30th June) #teamobc #trainhard #competeeasy
Good work team - it’s not easy grinding day in and day out and I’m not just talking about the physical grind. The mental grind/concentration needed in order to perform the lifts effectively is huge - the saying ‘No Brain. No Gain’ comes to mind 😎. Everyone in the team is working hard by studying their technique, their positional cues, having discussions about slight adjustments and changes to their lifting - after time their technique and more importantly their understanding of the lifts will become second nature. Keep working hard team, keep studying your technique, keep diligent on your recovery protocols and keep being awesome #teamobc #trainhard #competeeasy
Final Start list for our Club Competition this Sat (19th May). Last month was our club record for the most lifters in a session - this month is our club record for the least lifters in a session 😬 We will be live streaming the lifts too - keep an eye out on our Facebook page for the link #teamobc #trainhard #competeeasy
