British Champs review

Again, a quick update on the British Champs, so it has come and now gone. It was great to be back competing and whilst the outcome was not the one, I wanted I, it was what it was so to speak.

So, with only making 3 out of 5 attempts I ended up with a 250Kg Squat, 185Kgs Bench and 200 Deadlift for a really poor 635Kg total however I did make the Bodyweight and weighed in at 73.8Kgs. now for me it was close on 2 years since I made the 74Kg weight class and that was the big plus for the day. I did miss a 270 Sq and 192.5 bench, the 185Kg was a M2 British record. So now I have a bench mark to work from it is back to the grind and looking ahead to the British Classic later this month. Doing my first British Classic was something that was on the cards for a while now the delay was as you all know Covid and the situation. I have changed my plan for the comp and again it will be at 74Kgs bodyweight class and the sole outcome will be to qualify for a Classic international at some point. My first year as the M2 has not gone to plan so a few adjustments is now to be expected. With the rest of the year ahead and now the option of some form of international championships it is time to look and see what I am able to compete in. for me the World Masters has been ruled out with short notice and the possibility of a family holiday I am waiting some other news on a championship
