Last but by no means least is @davey_watts_
Down to earth Dave is just a pleasure to work with and has to be said that this result has only come from years of dedication of not just getting sessions in but attention to detail and learning from the mistakes that all weightlifters go through.

Dave had a hard faught battle through the day, which was a long one as normal for international competitions.
We put Dave into a good position through the Squat and Bench, which he has made great progress in the last 12 months so that when it came to the Deadlift we had enough to play with to get the job done. Dave is again the 67.5kg World Champion!

Frustratingly Dave was named best lifter overall on the Sunday evening but after the results were ratified further we found he had finnished second in the Mens Overall competition with a point score of 415.11 to the eventually winner who had scored 415.46 πŸ™ˆ

So very close to the overall and knowing he has a little more in each lift too is very encouraging.

Massive year planned already for this awsome athlete!

@Regran_ed from @davey_watts_ - Top lifts from the weekend
Squat 192.5kg
Bench 112.5kg
Deadlift 260kg
Total 565kg
Good weekend overall lifting with friends weighed in at 66.6kg won my class big thank-you to my family that mad the long drive and to my Charley for all her support in the weird way she give it
Also to @craig.spicer who’s programming and chooses on the day got us the win #powerlifting #bdfpa #wdfpf #glassgow2018 - #regrann

Next up is @sean.smithson who had a great day and retained his M1 under 90kg also finnishing 4th in the Open Cat too!

Sean has had so much going on this year and the last week or so! Really proud of how this 260kg deadlift moves, especially above the knee. A couple of months ago this would have been a hitched effort so to see the dicipline above the one at this weight amazing!

Love this from @triggernator 😍😍😍 @Regran_ed from @triggernator - Welcome to the grind, every day is a school day and all that balls! Consistent effort over time and a sprinkling of crazy is slowly paying off, #playingthelonggame

Right onto the lads!
Been working with @liftingandink since the British Champs and he had come on so much!

The day didnt go as planned due to restrictions to individual opening lifts but Jay quickly got his head around that and get himself mentally prepared to perform.

Squat has been tinkered with technically and the improvement is beginning to come through. Unfortunalty missed his second squat on depth but equalled his PB on his third and it moved FAST!

Bench he was only able to make one lift which he opened at 90kg....a 5kg comp PB
Which moved just as fast!

Deadlift was a phenomenal as normal finnishing up on this 247.5kg which was called a no lift for lockout (Would have been a 5kg PB!). It was pretty close and something we have worked it in the short space of time.

Jay finnished 4th in the Snr Cat but strangely should have been in the Jnr... Very proud of this mans attitude throughout the day and very excited to see how he develops with a big year next year!

@Regran_ed from @liftingandink - 247.5kg deadlift at 66kg bodyweight. Got 2 reds for it but whatever still strong enough to lift it. 250kg is around the corner. - #regrann
