I wanted to publically congratulate 2 of my athletes who triumphed this weekend.
Gina Iaquaniello won the u52kg UK Powerlifting championships this weekend with a total of 380kgs. She benched 70kgs, squatted 160kgs and deadlifted 150kgs. What is even more remarkable is that she only started lifting weights in Jan this year and lost 10kgs over 10 weeks whilst maintaining and even increasing her strength. She also trains completely naturally!!!
Bob Dawson also became IFBA Masters Mr Universe in Italy on sunday 5th July. Bob is 55 years young and did tremendously well and is looking forward to competing again in around 4 months time, so no binging on cheesecake!!!!
Well done to both of them.
