GBPF Masters 2013


Here we are a few days after the GBPF Master Championships and time to reflect on what went on and what I need to do from here on in. For those of you who won’t know my lifts were 300Kg Squat 215KG Bench and a 260Kg Deadlift. 775Kg Total, a new open and Masters 1 Total record. In fact it was an unofficial European masters 1 total record also.
Only missing my opening Squat of 285Kgs I found that my fitness was really bad at this comp in fact it was worse than ever I found it almost impossible to breath whilst squatting. After retaking my opener I almost decided to pass on a third attempt Squat,Not putting my suit up in the warm ups made a big difference this time and i was all out of line when i did my 1st attempt that was the reason for the step forward on the way up with it. Onto the Bench and I was a much better performance and 3 good bench’s set me up for a shot at the total record. My biggest surprise was the pull on 260Kgs it felt great and I was fired up ready to try a weight I had failed a few times before. This time it was a success and for me was the highlight of the day.

So what is next well I think a few days off training and then start to look at the European Masters Championships in July.
