Hi there, Aaron here!  Thanks for visiting Lifting IQ! I decided to start this site because I’ve been messing around with a bunch of Olympic Weightlifting data over the last few years, and thought starting a website would be the perfect way to share some of the cool things I’ve found with the rest of the Weightlifting community.

I have my B.S in exercise physiology and I’m an intermediate-level lifter (2015 University Nationals at 69kg, and the 77kg class in 2016). Now I’m too old for University Nationals but I’m keeping plenty busy finishing up my Ph.D. in Biochemistry. My posts will be more sparse than a typical blog due to my schooling, but I’ll do my best to post every few weeks (gotta take a break from my dissertation every once in a while!).
