Wow it has been ages since I updated my blog and sorted out what’s going on with my lifting. Well since the British I have been back to some raw training and concentrating on building up slowly on that before I go back into kit for the Europeans. I have planned out my raw stuff with some realistic weight. I did not feel that setting myself a few unrealistic targets would be beneficial in this part off the build-up. The whole program towards the Europeans is laid out as a 2 part program.  I have an 11 week plan without my kit then I will slowly start to use kit in the next phase off the program as the Europeans come closer.  

The last 7 weeks will I will change things around and focus on the equipped side. Also in July there will be the Welsh championships in Cardiff and that will fall just before the Europeans. This event is important to me because it will be where the selection for the home nations will be taken from. Also this year’s home nations will be held in Wales. Lifting on home ground at a big international is always a great thing to do and a pleasure to represent my home country. 

On another note for anyone who has seen some of the clips that have been posted on social media you may have seen my “squat” t-shirt. The guys at Vice grip have come up with this great idea and have sent me one to try out. Some off you may be aware when I squat the bar rolls on my back this top has helped stop that and is something I will be using when I squat. Check them out on
