ATG posted a phenomenal piece of content on their YouTube channel today: A full warm-up video of weightlifting legend Lu Xiaojun (CHN -81 kg) lifting in the training hall at the the 2018 World Championships in Ashgabat just days before winning his fourth world title.
Highlights from this video include
- Lu’s warm-up sequence including slo-mo footage – Bar, 60 kg, 90 kg, 120 kg, 140 kg, 150 kg, 160 kg
- Deficit stiff (ish) leg snatch deadlifts – 120 kg, 140 kg, 160 kg
- The famously named ‘Lu Raises’
- Barbell lateral bends (this seems like an exclusively Chinese accessory)
