Beth Chinchen  36 πŸ‘΅ Yorkshire lass in Glasgow, Scotland πŸ‹ 72kg powerlifter πŸ’ͺcoached by @strength_by_forge 😊 cat owner 🐈 eats too much and swears a lot πŸ–

#bench accessory day. #overheadpress at 32.5kg, and #slingshot bench at 60kg. Given my recent experiences with commercial gym PTs I was a bit wary about asking one for a spot but I think I've found my spiritual home lol. Coolest lassie ever, loves powerlifting and really interested in what I'm doing. Massive difference than being looked down on cos I'm not interested in training for aesthetics. Turns out all the PTs in here compete or have competed at something and regularly speak to people about bad form!!! 😁😁😁 @strength_by_forge #benchpress #strengthbyforge #supremacyfitnessforge #edinburgh #forged #forgepowerlifting#forgegirls #powerlifting #powerlifting #powerliftingwomen #ichoosestrong #gwpl#girlswhopowerlift #scottishpowerlifting #britishpowerliftingladies #gbpowerfed #britishpowerliftingladies #grrrlarmy #grrrlarmyuk #notyourcompetition #ugdapparel

I'm a massive fan of anyone getting into the gym and doing the big 5 movements correctly, squat, deadlift, bench, overhead press and barbell row.
But I'm perplexed at the amount of women who are doing some these movements and calling themselves a powerlifter.
It's great that your doing these movements, but some of you are just spending hours taking photos of yourselves and doing a couple of poor lifts and calling yourselves powerlifters.

It's becoming the new crossfit that everyone thinks it's fashionable to be part of this clique, without putting the hours of training on and putting yourself against the best.

I commend anyone that wants to get into this sport, but being on the platform and being in the gym are completely different things.

I play football sometimes, but I'm not a footballer nor will I claim to be one, but I don't mind a kick about.

Lift safely, train effectively and develop your skill Base, but know that a powerlifter puts themselves out there against others, not just on instagram.

One of my colleagues was at the Wimbledon Men's final. His flight back to Glasgow got cancelled and he got stuck in London. I had to work on my own for 2 days. He's just given me this to say sorry! #itakebackwhatisaidabouthim #hecouldvegotamegabusthough #orhiredacar #wimbledon #tennis

I swear it felt like I was pausing for about a week and a half. There must be some kind of disruption to the space time continuum when you're benching... anyway bench at 57.5kg (I think that might be a new 3RM I can't remember) and narrow grip at 52.5kg @strength_by_forge #bench #benchpress #strengthbyforge #supremacyfitnessforge #edinburgh #forged #forgepowerlifting #forgegirls #powerlifter #powerlifting #powerliftingwomen #ichoosestrong #gwpl #girlswhopowerlift #gbpf #sp #scottishpowerlifting #britishpowerliftingladies #gbpowerfed #grrrlarmy #grrrlarmyuk #notyourcompetition #forgetheory

"Light" #deadlift day (aka it's-heavier-than-it-should-be-kiddo-but-I-have-faith deadlift day). First and seventh set of 4 at 100kg, a set of paused at 70kg, followed by two sets of front #squats at 57.5kg. Now I've got #roxy, a belt I can actually brace against and feel it, I had a bit of a play around with belt position during the squats. Second set shown had it higher up my waist. Felt much better when I was doing them and IMO look better too. Also like to report the glute work appears to be working as I have no issues with my hips despite not doing mobility work as much due to time constraints. Happy powerlifter to say the least!😁 @strength_by_forge #conventionaldeadlift #skwaats #strengthbyforge #supremacyfitnessforge #edinburgh#forged #forgepowerlifting #forgegirls #powerlifting #powerlifting #powerliftingwomen #ichoosestrong #gwpl#girlswhopowerlift #gbpf #sp #scottishpowerlifting #britishpowerliftingladies #gbpowerfed #grrrlarmy #grrrlarmyuk #notyourcompetition #sturdybydesign #titanlonghorn #theweightsroom #cambuslang
