On Sunday 27th Octobter we hosted our 4th in-house friendly Powerlifting Competition, organised by Aleem Majid (competitive powerlifter & Personal Trainer) and the Better Gym Team.
The event kicked off at 11am with a brief introduction to the competition, a quick run through the rules, and a weigh-in. We had 16 competitors on the day – a mixture of experienced lifters and complete novices – and a guest appearance from Tom Skyrme, Founder/ Director of Affinity Nutrition.
Over the next 3 hours all competitors had 3 attempts at each lift (Squat, Bench Press, and Deadlift) before the winners were announced. Having used the WILKS Calculator to measure strength level of lifters relative to their bodyweight… we’re very proud to announce top Teddington lifters – Elaine Scanlon (top female lifter) & Sam Whitmarsh (top male lifter).
If you’d like to get involved in our next in-house lifting event, or keen to find out more please pop in and have a chat with one of the Teddington Team.
