Powerlifting World Championship in Germany – New European Record

After 16 weeks of training, I am happy that I set a new European record in Squat at 107.5 kg! That’s the most I ever lifted in Squat, training included! I think I have to go for the 110 kg next.

Leading by Example – If she can’t see it, she can’t be it.

20×20  (20×20.ie) is asking all sections of Irish society to show their stripes and pledge one small action to increase the visibility of women’s sport 

Here is my contribution. I’m hoping to see more women lifting weights. The benefits for women are for example:

 

  • Lose body fat. Weight training builds muscle, as lean muscle increases so does metabolism.
  • Gain strength without bulking.
  • Decrease risk of osteoporosis.
  • Reduce risk of injury.
  • Improve posture and reduce back pain.
  • Enhance mood and reduce stress.

See you at the squat rack! 🙂
