One Hand Making Gains

There have been many times I've wanted to give up but I can't

Hi, my name is Curtis. I was born missing my right hand but that didn't keep me from doing anything. However, being active did not keep me from being overweight. Up until Spring 14' I was overweight. From January to June I went from 200lbs to 150lbs. I started taking the gym more seriously in Oct 14' and did what I could to chase my dream of building strength, strength always came first to me. In June 2015 I finally bought a lifting hook and was able deadlift which completely changed working out for me. What many people don't see with adaptive athletes on Instagram is the literal blood, sweat, and tears that goes into it. Yes, other athletes experience this as well but being an adaptive weightlifter can at times be incredibly frustrating. There have been many times I've wanted to give up but I can't, it is far too rewarding and makes me far too happy to ever quit. I will be competing in my first competition this Fall which is WWG16 and I am very excited to show what I can do and meet with other adaptive athletes and share ideas. The picture is me at 14 years old, which isn't my heaviest but probably highest body fat because I was much shorter and me at the bottom of a 150lb snatch.
