A round up of @jamieshavdia performance at this past weekends BDFPA Eastern Counties Championships in Brandon. .
Jamie is well known for his competition addictions across the strength sports of both Powerlifting & Strongman. Which doesn’t make for easy programming when there is not much gap between events & when the disciplines rotate so frequently (powerlifting - strongman - powerlifting, for example).
Jamie performed really well at the BDFPA Eastern Counties Winter Open 5 weeks ago, adding 15kg to his total, 3PBs, & 1 joint PB. .
This weekend, was so close to being absolutely astonishing in the total progress. A slight error in the set up/bar placement when unracking for the 3rd attempt squat of 190kg meant that a 5kg PB that Jamie looked good for, was unfortunately not there on this day.
All has gone well in the short period between these comps & whilst Jamie was not confident initially in progressing his bench, we added a 2.5kg PB, & it was much more convincing than his previous comp lift.
Then came the big one & Jamie’s favourite. The deadlift. At the Winter Championships he definitely had kilos spare after already pulling a 5kg PB, & training had gone even better, so we knew a big number was there. His 2nd lift was a 5kg PB again & then his final lift was at the nice round number of 250kg, for a 15kg PB. & he got it!!! (With a little faint at the end for celebration 🥳). Giving him a 12.5kg total PB in the 5 weeks since last comp. .

Be great to see how much more we can gain by keeping him away from a competition for a little while 😂 Great work Jamie. 👌🏻
