My competition history

Helen of Diary of a Newbie Strongwoman said that night that I must be a bit of an old hand at powerlifting competitions by now, which prompted me to look back in my journal at all my past competitions! Let’s go!

GBPF South East Deadlift, 30th October, 2010

This was before the GBPF altered their weight classes, so I was in the 75kg class. 

Deadlift: 92.5kg 100kg 105kg 110kg (you get 4 attempts at a single-lift competition)

@ 72.9kg bw

First and last place, as I was the only woman taking part!

GBPF South East Open, 9th April 2011

Squat: 55kg, 62.5kg, 65kg

Bench: 35kg, 37.5kg, 40kg

Deadlift: 85kg, 95kg, 105kg

Total: 207.5kg @  72.5kg bw (0.5kg overweight!)

Second, and last, place!

EPA All-England, 9th October 2011

Squat: 65kg, 70kg, 72.5kg

Bench: 37.5kg, 40kg, 42.5kg 

Deadlift: 95kg, 105kg, 110kg 

Total: 217.5kg @ 71.4kg bw

Third, and last, place (I got the bronze medal!)

GBPF South East Open, 22nd April 2012

I don’t have a record of my lifts or my bodyweight, but I totalled  225kg and was really disappointed.

GBPF London Clubs Championship, 7th July 2012

Squat: 72.5kg, 77.5kg, 80kg

Bench:  40kg, 42.5kg, 45kg

Deadlift: 100kg, 107.5kg, 110kg

Total: 235kg @ 71.9kg

My club, Bethnal Green WLC, won best club in London. This is the same competition that I’m doing this Saturday (13th) where we’ll be defending the title. 

GBPF Greater London Open, 10th November 2012

Squat: 75kg, 82.5kg, 85kg

Bench: 40kg, 45kg, 45kg

Deadlift: 100kg, 110kg, 115kg

Total: 245kg @ 70.2kg bw – GBPF British qualification total!

First & last place in my weight & age category, as always.

GBPF South East Open, 8th April 2013

Squat: 75kg, 80kg, 85kg

Bench: 45kg, 47.5kg, 47.5kg

Deadlift: 110kg, 115kg, 120kg

Total: 235kg @ 70.7kg

This meet was a total disaster. After I fluffed my squats I just went to pieces. Oh well. First place in my weight/age category, but last place overall (going by Wilkes coefficient). 

Next: GBPF London Clubs Championship, 13th July 2013!
