Once the “WHY” had been established, my path was clear.
November last year I decided my crazy goal for 2019 was to qualify for the British Powerlifting Championships. In the 63kg category I was a way off the qualifying total and an ongoing shoulder injury was slowing down my strength gains. So after a meeting with my coach @apex_strength_coach the decision was made to cut weight and qualify in the 57kg class.
By 26th January my weight had gone -57kg with the expertise of @shannonsnutrition and I qualified for the Brits.
Since then I have competed in the Brits as planned and All England yesterday, achieving PBs in all three lifts and adding 30kg to my comp total.
The last 6 months have been one hell of a ride. Nobody can put in the effort and dedication for you. BUT thanks must be given to @williamsonchiro for all the shoulder rehab, @shannonsnutrition for getting me that 6kg fat loss and then building me back up! Most of all though to my incredible coach @apex_strength_coach for personalised, well thought out coaching that really works... not forgetting the motivation and impetus to always push me harder. These achievements have exceeded my wildest dreams and words cannot really express how much it means to me.
Saturday morning pull up practice .
If you are persistent you will get it, if you are consistent, you will keep it
To be able to do unassisted pull ups has always been one of my biggest goals and until a couple of years ago, I couldn’t even pull myself up once. Constant practice, with bands and cables has meant it has become second nature now
If you want to do something, reach for it... patience and persistence are key 💫
