Today Joe competed again in the East Midlands Masters, Juniors and Novices competition. He took to the stage with the squats and as with his first competition earlier this month he received 9 white lights and finished the squats with 70kg. This was a 7.5kg increase in just 3 weeks which is a tremendous achievement.
The bench press competition also saw a increase in Joe’s personal best as he finished with another 70kg. Within the deadlift competition Joe felt the nerves slightly and despite lifting the weight with ease on all three occasions he was only able to secure the final lift due to minor technicalities. With another 70kg on the deadlift, which equalled his personal best, Joe finished on a total of 210kg and this was sufficient to give Joe the title of East Midlands Junior Champion.
This performance has meant that Joe has now been offered the chance to compete for the title of British Junior Champion in October where we hope he will perform just as well.
