If by accident this happened to take place on the one weightlifting-free day of the Olympics I´d be in :lol:
Current PBs:
195 kg SQ, 130 kg Bench, 245 kg DL, 200 kg SQ w/ wraps

Long Term Goals:
@ 75 kg: SQ - 252,5 kg, SQ w/ Wraps - 267,5 kg, DL - 307,5 kg, Total (w/ and w/o Wraps) - 710
@ 82,5 kg: SQ - 275 kg, SQ w/ Wraps - 277,5 kg, Total (w/ and w/o Wraps) - 772,5 kg

Agreed with push pull (even though bench would be playing to my strengths...)

Would love to do Midlands but eats a bit shit here, suspect OSG best Gym/food combo...

Would definitely be up for this, was gutted when I had to bail on the last Manchester meet up.

Like Stoaty says the Midlands is shite; Manchester is a much better option. Obviously unless there's some kind of ridiculous 'how much weight can you have hanging off you whilst doing a pull up' competition I will be merely observing - happy to act as ref :D

Manchester would work again, I'm getting the train or megabus this time though and saving some money! Hope this comes together, stoked!

As far as lifts I'm up for anything. (as long as there's deadlifting)

hey one rack would do just fine, you can have 8+ people in one rack and make it work with a bit of discipline :)

manchester is the most boring option for me since i live here :lol:

I reckon I could be persuaded, though I'll get my ass owned by you fellers now!!

I might still maybe manage a little clean and press.
