GBPF (WPA) Welsh Championships

Here is the low down on how the day went. Weighed in a bit heavier than I had expected at 77:1kgs.  Deciding that this was going to be used as my last week’s heavy training before the Europeans I only opted to take 2 squats and 2 benches. Opening on a 275kg squat and whilst it was not an easy as the opener I wanted but then it was my first squat with the suit straps up since the British equipped in February. I then went to 290kgs for a British masters 1 record and after setting the weight up better i made the squat and it felt much better than the previous one.

Onto the bench again I took 2 lifts and broke the British bench and single lift bench records with a comfortable 205Kgs. As this was going to be my last deadlifting session before the Europeans I took 3 attempts and finished on a comfortable 255kg lift. My deadlift has felt great for some time and in the last build up I have focused more on speed and grip than actual weight being lifted. I did feel there was more in the tank and my grip felt rock solid on the last deadlift so hopefully that will continue moving forward to the Europeans.

So the final total for the day was 750kg and again this was a British masters 1 total record like the squat and bench all at the 83kg class. So what’s next well a few lighter sessions this week before I head off to compete at the European masters?

Some dieting to get back down to the 74s for that comp and hopefully some decent lifting and a tidy total at the end. Well that’s the plan anyways
