‘Big’ Steve Thomasson lifts his way to victory at UK BPO Open

‘Big’ Steve  Thomasson lifts his way to victory at UK BPO Open

We are proud to say that Andy Roberts  BJJ resident strong man, ‘Big’ Steve, won his category at the UK BPO opens earlier this month.

With stiff competition, Steve was able to finish a 282.5kg deadlift and a 170kg bench press, earning him first place in the -125kg bracket. Not only did he manage to beat other seasoned lifters, he did this raw (meaning he didn’t use any supports), even though it was an equipped event.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with powerlifting, there are 3 key lifts: deadlift, bench press and squat. All of these movements are fundamental to building strength and are the bread and butter of any weightlifting program.

To find out how you can incorporate powerlifting into your strength & conditioning sessions, you can find lots of information on www.t-nation.com, www.breakingmuscle.com and www.smolovjr.com (for squat and bench).

Please join me in congratulating Steve on his achievement, along with wishing him the best of luck for all his future competitions.

PS. Following his impressive performance Steve has been invited to represent his country at the World Championships in France in November!!!! BOOM!!

Andy Roberts BJJ -  Fight. Lift. Win.
