The weekend of the 10th to the 12th of May was a busy one. With lifting from the Friday to the Sunday we had a handful of clients compete at their frist British and each and every one of them did myself, and themselves proud.
British Champion - Dennis O'Shea. -140kg Raw.
Dennis went into this competition just looking to improve on the last one. He managed a 5kg squat PB and a 2.5kg deadlift PB - this was more than enough to secure him that Gold Medal and an invite to the World Championship.
Squat - 170kg
Bench - 132.5kg
Deadlift - 252.5kg
Second Place in Britain - Sarah Jayne Riley. - 90kg Raw.
Sarah's training had gone fairly well going into this one and it showed on the day. With a 12.5kg total PB she managed a 7.5kg PB on squat and a 5kg bench PB (giving her the biggest bench of all the girls in the Daniel Lee Fitness group, for now...).
Squat - 100kg
Bench Press - 75kg
Deadlift - 135kg
Total - 310kg
Third place in Britain - Chanel Hanes. - 67.5kg Raw.
With a bit of a shaky day Chanel still managed to secure a Bronze medal in a tough class.
She managed -
Squat - 107.5kg
Bench Press - 62.5kg
Deadlift - 132.5kg
With a more settled build up to the next competition there will definitely be some big PBs in store for her!
Piotr Zietal - -82.5kg Classic Raw.
With an aim of just improving on March's lifts Piotr managed a comfortable 15kg total PB at his first British Championships. Watch out this year for him to return with wraps!
Squat - 170kg
Bench press - 110kg
Deadlift - 205kg
Total - 485kg
All of these guys will be competing again later this year - watch out for them. They're already making massive improvements.
