Interview with Ryan Sennett
Tree Trunx: When and how did you get started in Olympic weightlifting?
Ryan: I have been lifting for four years. I started weight training to gain strength for football, but I quickly realized that I was a better lifter than football player. I love that weightlifting is very individualized and that it pushes me as a person in many different aspects. I love being sore and tired and knowing that I put an honest day’s work in at the gym.
Tree Trunx: What are your weightlifting accomplishments?
Ryan: I currently hold the Michigan Men’s Record in the super heavy Weight Class. In 2013 (16 years old), I placed third at Junior Nationals which is a 20 and under competition. In 2014, I placed 2nd as a 17 year old. In May of this year, I won gold at the 2014 Youth Pan American Games by 70kg/155lbs in total. At 2014 Youth Nationals I broke the American Snatch Record with 141kg/310lbs and tied the American Record total with 311kg/685lbs, this won me the Youth Olympic spot.
