Get into Halloween spirit for inaugural competition that’s easier than looks

PCYC Auburn Gym and Fitness activity coordinator James Frecklington said the event was a fundraiser for Time4Kids program which sees the NSW Police Force youth command working closely to help young people by empowering them to change their lives for the better.
Forty spots are available for the event with prizes for the best dressed entrants, as well as best male and female lifters and best grind.
“This competition will be open to all levels of lifting experience, focusing on improving one’s personal best in a supportive, competitive environment,” he said.
“There are huge prizes to be won, kindly donated by our sponsors Iron Tanks and Bodytech Supplements.”
Entry costs $55 and includes a 10-week deadlift program and access to the gym facility and technique videos, giving every entrant the best chance possible to hit some new personal records.
Mr Frecklington says the deadlift is great for weight loss, building muscle and improving overall strength and urged people not to be afraid to try it.
“Deadlifting isn’t as bad as it sounds,” he said.
“Most people should be incorporating this movement into their training plan on a regular basis as it targets all muscle groups at once making it perfect for those with busy schedules.
“The deadlift, if performed correctly, won’t hurt your back at all. So make sure to see a qualified coach or trainer to teach you the basics before you start.”
