Adam and Jake lift title crowns

ASHFIELD powerlifters Adam Beniston and Jake Woolley celebrated title success during the recent GBPF North Midlands Powerlifting & Bench Press Championships.

Adam lifted in the Men’s Open Powerlifting Championships, weighing in at 67kg.

Adam squatted 120kg, bench pressed 70kg and deadlifted a personal best 162.5kg to win the U/74kg class.

Debutant Jake (18) lifted in the U20 years unequipped Bench Press Championships.

He weighed in at 72kg and bench pressed 100kg in his first ever competition to win the U/74kg class.

This qualifies Jake to compete in the GBPF British Championships later in the year.

Both lifters were coached by multi World Powerlifting & Bench Press champion Phil Beniston.
