Another great video!!

What age and weight classes were all those guys?

Watching Gaz squat was cool, he’s got such an efficent style.

Nice video! Some good lifts there.

Im new to powerlifting and want to compete. Do you know any federations in my area?(Leeds/Yorkshire)

BWLA = British weightlifting association:
http://www.weights.demon.co.uk/yne/

BDFPA = British Drug Free Powerlifting association:
http://www.bdfpa.co.uk/

Both have a powerlifting presence in your area. There is certainly a strong Powerlifting presence in Bradford (at the Uni and possibly elsewhere)
Try the links above.

Our club is currently affiliated with the BDFPA but has been involved with BWLA in the past. Some lifters lift in both, but it can be pricey (double registration fees etc.
Both associations have raw sections if you’re not ready to try PL gear.

Thanks for the comment Elliot.
PM me if you strugle with the above links,
All the best!

So you do squat and bench too!
Which one is you?

I didn’t lift (injured).
