Today saw several Spartans in action at the East Midlands Bench Press Championships in Colchester. The first group of the day saw Dan lift a personal best of 60kg, followed by Zoe who finished on 95kg which being 4kg heavier than the current world record is a respectable weight to lift. The group was finished with Riccardo who having had a late night finished on 110kg which was only 2.5kg down on a PB he set at the British 6 weeks ago and Adam who achieved the 140kg he set out to at the beginning of the day.
The rest of the club were in the 3rd group and here we saw Matt H and James both get all three lifts and both set PB’s with James finishing on a well deserved 90kg Matt fighting to get 112.5kg up but both were passed.
Dan and Riccardo were the only Spartans to miss any lifts today showing there is more to give so it’s back to training and working harder to improve those lifts once again.
