Client: Terence Taukave
Sport: IPF Raw Powerlifting
Service: Personal Training
Result: 700kg total in the junior 93kg class
“I began powerlifting in 2009 in Fiji and competed in the Pacific region until arriving in Australia in November 2012. My best lifts before arriving in Australia were 130kg for the bench press, 227.5kg for the squat and 245kg for the deadlift. I wanted to compete in Australia as a junior powerlifter where the competition is harder and more ferocious than my homeland.
Whilst waiting for the bus on Kent Street in Sydney’s CBD, I discovered the Clean Health Fitness Institute gym and ventured inside. I looked inside the gym and was blown away. There were signs of strength in every direction I looked, beginning from thick grip bars to chains and bands. It was then I met Daine McDonald and we discussed my current training and future goals.
Since that meeting and training with him I have surpassed all my expectations. Since then I have lifted 160kg in the bench press, 245kg in the squat and 295kg in the deadlift for a 700kg total in the junior 93kg class. I look forward to besting these numbers at the 2014 IPF World Championships in South Africa!
I have the drive and dedication to win, but this would amount to nothing without the guidance and direction of Daine McDonald!”
