GBPF Bench Press well here is how it all went for me we had a bit of a trip up north and to be honest it was like the old days going to somewhere new and making a full weekend of it. Why others don’t travel is beyond me it is all part of the fun of lifting. A few of us in the car for the road trip soon made the journey less boring
On the say we had a few of the ladies lifting unequipped along with Matthew (Aqua Bear) all lifted well and from what I understand enjoyed. Myself and Peter lifted on the Sunday in the Equipped event. My warm ups went well and I had decided to open higher than I normally would have done and posted a 210 opener. It took me 2 goes to get it but then I move up to 217.5Kgs for a shot at the British Open and master record. This was a success and a much better lift. I got a few clips of the lifting.
Well done to all who made this weekend a great time and a big well done to the welsh lifters who made the trip, even with low numbers you all did well guys. Thanks go out also to Jim and the Crew up in Ashington for the effort and the tireless work that goes into running events.
Once again I would like to thank my sponsors NRG Fuel and Titan Support systems, Best supplements and Powerlifting kit around. Next up for me is the British Masters where I have stiff competition so it is back to the gym and time to get focused on the next challenge.
