So MANY champions ! IT KILLS WEIGHTLIFTING

I remember training a kid for 10 weeks and he went and won the British Champs ! What did he do then ?? Well he just quit ... It does nothing to go and win an empty victory ! If he went and came 12th then i guarantee this kid would still be competing today ..

I`ve had tons of the same example over the years ..

I believe we need British championships at under 16 level only . Then Junior . Then Senior

Everybody should be encouraged to participate in the British Senior Championships as soon as they can hit qualification .. The National teams should be selected from this competition ..

You need to create competition .. I f**king hate all the 10000000 Champions BULLs**t

That why Powerlifting has no f**ker watching .. OH another World Record !! No-one cares


Just out of interest Mark, what are your in and out of competition bests for weightlifting?

You must be one of our best lifters also? I know you've had ridiculous numbers in all three strength sports.

A fraction of the weight classes at junior level, or maybe just one class on formula might help. The juniors would still have the chance to lift against lifters of the same age, but would have to compete to win.

So is Darius Jokarzadeh concentrating on American football or weightlifting? Since the total he put up 2 years ago of 385 what's been his best?

Also, how come the senior c+j record of 215 he set in 2013 isn't also the u23 record ie he set that record with 196 a year later in 2014? Is it something to do with only being able to set certain records in certain comps?

Average at best mate -

I was a good young lifter in my teens but then I found the females and booze !!

2005 94kg

Training - 165kg - 190kg
Comp - 160kg - 185kg

2006 94kg

Training - 170kg - 195kg (200kg clean)
Comp - 160kg - 186kg

2007 broken my wrist !! Struggled to get back to full fitness and they took away my funding

My son was born in 2007 so that was the end of that - retired at 27 !

Although I did clean and jerk 195kg in front of the last Alan Fairclough in 2009 which was an honour !

That's definitely not average considering you were pretty much doing the british records (165.5/196).

Also, very few lifters in the world have been elite lifters in all 3 strength sports!

Unlucky with the injury. i did wonder why you stopped.

You ever thought about doing it again at some point in between strongman? Maybe just to break the british records!

A video of Brian strange competing at 17 years old. Clean and pressed 147.5kg. He still has that record to this day! Grin
