My colleague and good friend Luke Vella is putting his body on the line to support The Grand Appeal. It seems that The Team Bath contingent are turning The Grand Appeal into a charity where it is necessary to sacrifice your body for the cause! His attempt is at the other end of the spectrum to my own!

On 27th April 2016, Luke is going to attempt to break the world record for the most amount of weight deadlifted in 60 seconds. The target, 5670kg requiring 126kg for 45 reps. The training is a brutal mixture of developing maximal strength and strength endurance.
