Thanks Alistair. It was a struggle to upload the results on here without them looking strange.

Even more importantly than the lifting results is the fact that we raised 167 for Help for Heroes. It's a great amount considering the small scale of the event. Hoping to organise a beginner strongman comp either next term or academic year at Bournemouth University. After the number of new people attending the Dorset powerlifting championships I believe there is a lot of untapped potential out there that needs to be encouraged into strength sports!

Look forward to any thoughts/ideas/help on this idea.

Like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved today, especially Paul Rees, Alistair Cannings, Steve Tyres, Darren Wilkes, James Lever and all of those who aren't on this forum.

It was a great event with 32 participants overall! With at least half of them being firt timers, which I hope can help the sport grow. The results will be posted up in the next few days.

Approximately 150 was raised for Help for Heroes.

Highlights included Alexandra Williams, 14 years old, breaking British records for her age group and weight class. Vince Minty delivered with some great lifts, 160kg+ bench impressed a crowd completely new to the concept of powerlifting.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the British; where I'm sure we could use some extra hands for those of you who will have some free time.

Once again, thanks to all.

Attention

Unfortunately due to lack of entries; the morning weightlifting competition, due to start from 8am, has been cancelled.

Apologies to anyone who was planning to come along.

Powerlifting, weigh in from 12, is still on and the entry list is full up. Spectators are welcome.

Look forward to seeing everyone Sunday.

Last week to get entry forms in: heading towards full capacity in the Powerlifting, lots of space still in the weightlifting.

First timers will be welcomed and all rules shall be fully explained to them.

If you are within the area spread the word to potential lifters.

Depending on interest may be the potential to run a first timers strongman competition at Bournemouth University during May

Paul and the rest of the gang will sort it out.


As were are talking about long days Paul will there be any catering?



I'm not sure whether Paul will be organising a snack stand; however on campus there is a shop, bar and costa coffee Grin

Not long away now. Entries are looking good. Will be at least 20 individuals competing across the day. Some first timers as well as experienced individuals rehearsing for the following week.

All profit is being donated to Help for Heroes.

Still a week left to get entries in. Would be great to see some new faces on the circuit, so give a gentle nudge to any gym rats you know. Spectators welcome, enry free but donations encouraged Wink

Entry forms from: http://bournemouthbarbell.co.uk/competitions/forthcoming-event...

Enquiries to myself, Adam Elkins: 07922619527. Email: adam_elkins89@hotmail.com

Ps. Volunteers are always appreciated Happy

Kind regards,

They did a test during the 60/70s at Stanford university called the 'Marshmellow tests' They found that children who couldn't wait five minutes, and if they could got two marshmellows, before eating a marshmellow were more likely to be drug users and not do as well academically.

Moral of those tests, make your kids wait

I've opted for this tactic instead of doing hyper extensions. I find if you lie on your side you can work obliques as well

Think he might be put off when I tell him some deadlift numbers at training later

Again, I would urge members to push any local new-comers/gym rats/athletes towards this event as well as doing it themselves. It will be a great opportunity to increase participation in weightlifting and powerlifting across the region, as well as demonstrating you don't need 400 wilkes to have fun.Grin
