When I’m not working or relaxing I’m most likely to be training.

As a competitive powerlifter I compete within the British Powerlifting federation in the under 57kg (125lbs) bodyweight category and have represented Great Britain internationally.

Powerlifting is a fun sport and competing involves squatting, bench pressing and deadlifting the heaviest weight possible for a single repetition.

In business, turnover is vanity and profit is sanity. In powerlifting, gym lifts are vanity and competition lifts are sanity.

My current gym maximums are:

  • Squat: 145kg/320lbs
  • Bench: 100kg/220lbs
  • Deadlift: 185kg/408lbs
  • Total: 430kg/948lbs.

In a competition they are:

  • Squat: 142.5kg/314lbs
  • Bench: 92.5kg/204lbs
  • Deadlift: 180kg/397lbs
  • Total: 412.5kg/909lbs.

Competition Wilks points: 480.40 (bring on 500!)

UK ranking for 2021: 14th

The wonderful people at Mirafit invited me in to discussing powerlifting for a documentary.
