Dave has returned to competing in powerlifting in 2014.
On the 10th August 2014 Dave won the best overall raw lifter at the GPC British Powerlifting Finals (Global Powerlifting Commettee Great Britain) and made the biggest raw squat in any federation, age or weight class in the United Kingdom. The squat was of 380kg and no supportive powerlifting equipment was being used during the lift. This remarkable squat puts Dave to be Number 1 in the World in the Masters Group.
Dave has helped train The Rock and Jimmy Marku who won Britain's Strongest Man in 2008 and regularly helps coach Andy Bolton, the World's Premier Super Heavy Weight powerlifter. These athelets train with Dave in what is a "no attitude" friendly gym for everyone. Dave also has a strong powerlifting team, who have taken numerous titles. Dave is keen to promote the use of weights in many sports and coaches gymnasts, body builders, endurance athletes and professional boxers to better themselves through the use of weights and initiative ideas. Dave is keen to help anyone suceed including wheelchair and disabled athletes through to top International competitors in any sport.
All Dave likes to see is commitment and the will to train hard and not complain.
