- To reach your greatest potential you’ll have to fight your greatest fears
We sat down with weightlifting Champion Mack Middleton, to talk about what it takes to compete at both national and international level when it comes to nutrition, training and mindset.
When did you start your training?
When I was 14, I was playing rugby and I started strength training to improve my play, then after a few years I’d picked up a few injuries and decided rugby wasn’t for me, I knew someone who trained at what is now my gym and thought I’d give weightlifting a go and that’s when I transitioned to solely Olympic weightlifting, age 17.
Did you test out various forms of training before you focused on Weightlifting?
The only training I did prior to taking up the sport was generic strength and conditioning training, most of my journey up until starting was pretty much on my own so I would only do what I would see reading and watching things online.
What has been your greatest sporting achievement?
My first GB representation in the European championships in 2019.
How many competitions have you taken part in/won?
I’ve competed in 2 internationals and 4 national champs, I also won all of the nationals.
