Don't log my training here anymore but still want to keep track of my competitions.

Weighed in at 104.9kg. Not the easiest weight cut I've made but at least I didn't overshoot it.

1st: 250kg - Good
2nd: 265kg - Good
3rd: 272.5kg - Good

Got 275kg 2 weeks out but that knew that would have been a tough ask even before the comp. 272.5kg was a good call, wasn't much left. All time comp pb by 2.5kg.

1st: 170kg - Good
2nd: 180kg - Good
3rd: 185kg - Good

Knew 185kg was possible coming into this but it would be tough. Elbow tendonitis was playing up in the final few weeks so couldn't push bench as hard as I would of liked. Again, good call for a 3rd and wasn't much left out there.

1st: 300kg - Good
2nd: 315kg - Good
3rd: 325kg - Good

Pulled 325kg in training a few weeks out but wasn't able to hold it for more than a split second. Made grip a focus over the final weeks and it showed. Bar was a bit smooth which didn't help, a good sign of my grip improving though. 325kg was slipping at the top but held it long enough to get the down signal.

Total: 782.5kg and 467.7 wilks

Came second to Stephen Manuel who set a new British record of 810kg. Always knew that was going to happen so no complaints coming second to someone of that standard. Got an all time pb total at a lighter bodyweight, went 9/9 and left nothing out on the platform. Next target is 800kg total @ 105kg. Hopefully done enough to get an invite to the squads so aiming for a return to international lifting too.

Getting fat is just as dumb as using PED's
