Thanks for capturing some epic moments from the English Benchpress Championships 👉🏼Brendan Lake @jazzo80m by far the best comp photographer I have had! #photography #sportsphotography #create #image #photooftheday #instame

This week has been full of technique work and I am loving it! It is such an important part of progression and injury prevention (win-win💪🏼). 📷Thanks @asterathletic for supporting my bench goals with these wrist straps! #fitfam They are not IPF competition spec but for anyone needing a little extra support these will be an excellent way to get some more volume into your training!

Do you have the FTO gene⁉️ Or several others that have been associated with weight gain? I am looking for UK based biological parents of children aged 0-16 years to participate.
If you are interested please click the link in my bio to fill out a short questionnaire and provide postage details for your DNA testing kit 🤓

My research looks at DNA and lifestyle factors that have been associated with weight gain in children and has been designed in light of the NHS initiative to prevent rather than treat. Any questions feel free to email me on:

💪🏼English Bench Press Championships 🥈 💪🏼 70✔️/75✔️comp PB/80✖️ I am SO happy with my benching today, I decided to attempt 80 (rather than 77.5 my gym PB) and f͓̽a͓̽i͓̽l͓̽e͓̽d͓̽ but just holding the weight has let me know that I CAN do it. I will. I just need to get back to the training room 😂💪🏼. 👉🏼swipe for my attempt videos
I took a road trip yesterday to this competition, which was a little unanticipated, I had entered but was unsure if I was going to go due to it being so close the the English Championships (3 lift) on Monday and my body being 😴 as a result. I am SO happy I ended up going! Experience, experience, experience. Showing what you can do on the platform is a whole different ball game, one I am determined to get use to.
I'm going to keep ranting, so read on if you are interested. Sometimes it's hard to appreciate progress, that is the point of my Instagram account, to show a strength journey. Getting an 80kg benchpress is my next hurdle 🙂 but I can remember back to the February @bethnalgreenwlc London divisional when I treated 70kg in the same way. It was such a 'heavy' number in my head but once achieved you instinctively look up to the next one ☝️soooooo sometimes you have to step back and appreciate the gainzzzzzz 💪🏼😊. Thanks @marshcoaching for putting up with me, WHAT.A.WEEK.

💫145kg💫 My final deadlift from competition! This number has never felt so smooth (with a little back arch alert👀). One thing this competition has taught me is that MIND SET is always a beautiful thing👌🏼After the past month of training deadlifts had become the 'scary part' for me, but this lift was following some disappointing benching so my head was telling me there is no way I am finishing without getting all of these lifts in 😤! And I did 😊! I went 3/3 with 132.5,142.5 and 145kg. Numbers were played safe, this final lift 👈🏼is 5kg below my PB but it was a 5kg competition PB ⬅️ mixed emotions! 😀🙁🤔😂 @londonpowerlifting

aaand I am home! What a weekend! Overall a pretty successful one for the squad, podium spots all around 💪🏼 @londonpowerlifting @marshcoaching walked away smiling! I also got to meet some very inspirational strong ladies from other clubs, some who I have met through here (isn't #instagram great💪🏼). There is nothing quite like watching people from behind the scenes get on that platform and PERFORM! I left this competition inspired and wanting more, I was not happy with my numbers (322.5kg total) but I was most definitely happy with my position -🥈2nd in my first national competition and second ever competition! 💪🏼🙂 Thanks to the best support in town @izzy.lifts @ellendeebee @bexsmith21 😘😘😘
👉🏼@commandotemple

🥈 Second Place at the All Englands 🥈(2nd place to GBs no.1 @j_nnamani). A bitter sweet position in all honesty. I am very happy with the place buuuut was I happy with my performance? Nope, not at all. Did I do my best? Noooope. Will I try harder next time? Most definitely. Finished with 6/9 lifts. A teenie tiny squat PB, a pretty awful bench day and then a decision to pull 3 safe deadlifts to secure the position.
