This week has had a number of training lows and one big training high! I’m really starting to believe that I might do well in the deadlift at the British in THREE WEEKS’ TIME!! Still not wholly convinced that my bench or squat are going to be particularly good though. As lofty as my ambitions are, […]

Snog do peanut butter fro-yo! Fuck yes!!!

This week, the peak cycle starts! This means lots of heavy sets and probably some tears! I’ve got quite lofty ambitions for the British Classic on 20 September – which may not be entirely realistic – but I’m going to work my arse off to get as close as I can! I seem to be […]

Rest day burger, erm, gainz!

I’ve had to take a deload this week because my hip flexors are quite unhappy with me. I don’t know if this is because of the volume of training Matt’s got me doing, the changes I’ve made to my squat position are taking a while to adjust to, or if my hip flexors are just […]

Andy and Benni with me and Tara. Gorgeousness!

This is such an exciting week! So much strong stuff going on. So much lifting to do. No point forcing an introduction to this post… Sunday 3 August I am desperate to match my Strongwoman deadlift PB (132.5kg) with a proper Powerlifting deadlift with beautiful, proper deadlift form. So desperate, I’d sell my soul… OK […]

Yesterday, I competed in my first Powerlifting competition: the London Clubs comp at Bethnal Green. I needed a total of 225kg to qualify for the British Classic in September, which I got with 20kg to spare! A 85kg squat, 55kg bench press and 110kg deadlift gave me a total of 245kg. As always, the u63kg […]

The Ladies having a paddle

I promised you a more interesting blog post this week, but alas it looks like I’m going to fail. What with work and training 6 days a week, I don’t feel like I have much time to do anything exciting every week. I’m getting on! I need my rest time!! This week is my last […]
