Gym Reopening (finally) Saturday 25th July

To all Bridge Road Barbell Members (past and present) I hope this email finds you well. I thought I would take an opportunity first to thank those of you who have continued to support the gym throughout the period where the gym has been closed down. It has allowed the gym to survive this difficult time and endure the restrictions placed during this Covid-19 pandemic.   I am now happy to be officially reopening  this Saturday(25th July) again and I want to inform people of the changes to how the gym will be operating from now on.  The gym will now be running exclusively on an ‘appointment only’ basis meaning that members and visitors alike will both have to book their sessions in advance on the website at . Members will need to go to this page and register and set up an account.  I will then approve the

Covid 19 Update : Gym closed until further notice

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and following subsequent Government regulations, Bridge Road Barbell Club have had to temporarily close our doors until we have been cleared to re-open to the public. I appreciate how frustrating this very difficult period is for everyone.  We were left with no option but to close our doors at the start of the official lockdown, but hope that the strong measures taken by the Government will allow us to return to relative normality in the not too distant future. Training is a huge and important part of our lives and it leaves a very big hole when it is taken away and our routines are disrupted. Several people have borrowed equipment to enable some training to continue at home and I urge as many of you as possible to maintain whatever form of training you can.  It is beneficial for both your physical health but

21st December – Members Powerlifting Comp

On the 21st December, we will be holding a powerlifting competition for any members (and past members) wanting to test out their strength on squat, bench and deadlift, and see how much their strength has improved across the year. It will be a casually run competition and we will accept entries for raw (naked knees), raw with sleeves OR wraps, single ply or multi-ply. You can enter full-power, single lift (squat, bench or deadlift) or a combination of your two favourite lifts. We will be providing some refreshments, teas, coffees, mince pies etc for during/afterwards and would greatly appreciate if as many of the members as possible come down to lift or just show your support for those who are. This is a great opportunity for those who perhaps are thinking about getting into powerlifting, to test out their lifts under competition rules, with referees etc, before taking the plunge

Grip Competition Results

Grip Tour – Camberley 5th October 2019 On Saturday the 5th October, David Horne and family came down to run another of his World Of Grip Competitions. We had a mixture of new and familiar faces for a great competition,  run brilliantly as usual by David and Elizabeth Horne. The events in this competition were the Fence Post lift, Two handed Key pinch on the shallow hub (lift), Gold Bar Pinch (hold) and the One hand lift (hold).  We had several Bridge Road Barbell members enter and some fantastic performances by all. Particular well done to Callum Watson picking up not one but two world records. We’d love more people from the gym to come and give the Grip competitions a go, as they have a great atmosphere and the training can compliment a regular strength or powerlifting programme very well. Here are the results…. Open Class results (16 competitors)
