First British record of the day was Louise Murray on her squat of 132.5kg, followed by Robert Love grabbing his first British Record with 282.5 kg squat done at 91kg bwt and unequipped – proving that you can be a great unequipped and equipped lifter with years of hard work, training, dedication and awesome coach beside you.
