🇬🇧 BRITISH CHAMPION 🇬🇧 To get to step up there on the podium… words can't describe it. I had an amazing comp with PBs in all lifts, a British bench press record, a British deadlift record (that @suzannelifts well deserved took a minute later, amazing to watch💪) and a British total record🏆 I gave it my all yesterday, trusted the work that me and @deadliftbig have put in and I couldn't have asked for a better outcome than this!! I went 9 for 9 for the first time with my best lifts being 140kg squat (+2.5kg PB), 90.5kg bench (+5.5kg PB) and 178.5kg deadlift (+6kg PB) giving me a total of 409kg (+14kg PB)! And 445wilks being a lightweight at 61.9kg bw🐜 I am so thankful for the support from my @bethnalgreenwlc fam, so greatful to have a coach like @deadliftbig that I can trust 110% and so lucky to have my friends and family cheering me on, watching the stream ❤ It was an honour to share the platform with the strongest jr women in the UK – we were all competing against eachother but I don't think you can find another sport where there is this kind of atmosphere, amazing!♀ And truly amazing lifting from @suzannelifts and @makeda_vidal bringing home the hardware too, inspiring to see both you lift (damn those squats and deadlifts!!) and happy I got to meet you ❤ Now it's time to eat, rest and get back to the drawing board… November is coming up😏💪 • • • #britishpowerlifting #rawpowerlifting #strength #strong #gym #gymlife #styrkelyft #britishchampionships #champion #pb #squat #bench #deadlift #sbd #powerlifting #powerlifter #girlswithmuscle #girlswhopowerlift #gymgirls #girlswholift #greaterlondonpowerlifting #swedish #tyngre #eleikosport #eleiko @tyngre @sbdapparel @eleikosport
