'So here we are returning for our 3rd year, linking up with Wolverson Fitness. This year we have really turned it up a notch, and will welcome the likes of Mike Catris, Stuart Trees, Barry Mairs, PD Savage, Beth Hoggarth, Fran Calvert, and Fran Palama to the mix, in a spectacle not to be missed!
In a plan that has been put together for nearly 12 months, both Jason McCarthy and Alex Morton of Wolverson Fitness have helped us build a Throwdown unlike any other. In this 2 day event, you'll start day 1 with a Strongman theme by gripping Farmers Carry Handles, flipping D-Balls, Snatching Dumbbells and Lunging with Axle Bars. Then if you make it you'll be back to Conventional Functional Fitness on Day 2.
We've stressed that no matter what category you are, you'll be completing the same workouts, just slightly altered for capabilities. This guarantees a tight yet exciting event!
All that's left to say is enjoy practicing the workouts, and no matter what, let's see if you're all up to the test of being crowned the Champion come the 17th July...
Good Luck from all at The Wolverson Lancashire Championships!'
