Mattie Rogers Clean and Jerk PR from 4 Years Ago

There is no substitute for hard work.

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.”

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
