Jamie King or Big Red is an exciting young lifter from Eastside. He is currently preparing for the National Powerlifting where he will compete in the Junior 74 kg class. Jamie is a raw lifter and has a stack of talent. He has a huge deadlift and his squat and bench are also improving.
There is about 8 weeks until the Nationals. Today Jamie squatted 140 for 2 sets of 8 reps. Both sets were solid. We are working on tightening up in his decent and also making sure he is “upright” at the start.
Lots of work to be done but it is an exciting time. We will follow his progress right up until the Nationals at the start of August.
