Fantastic progress in 2016 across all lifts but especially the squat, where James has shown some great nature talent and development.

Next Year sees James in his first powerlifting meet with the BDFPA (British Drug Free Powerlifting Association) in January with the near certainty that he qualify for the Nationals in Mar-17, where he should be able to be place in the top 3 in the teenager 1 class in the 67.5kg bodyweight division.

A structured approach and adaptation along the way brings results.  James’ rugby has had a real boost this season with his extra power – if you’d like to improve your own strength then please contact me through this page Contact Me or Facebook
