We’re extremely excited to announce the proud sponsorship of Mr. Jack Clayton by Joel Redman and the Summertown Clinic as he prepares for national powerlifting trials in the next few months. Here at Summertown Clinic we’re always on the lookout for ways in which we can help promote health to the wider community and this year Jack has really caught Joel’s attention.

A recent graduate of Sports and Exercise Science from Oxford Brookes, Jack has been working tirelessly over the past few years to climb the ranks of British powerlifting whilst consistently achieving well in his academics.

Despite competing at a national level Jack and the rest of the Brookes powerlifting team unfortunately have little to no access to prehab, rehab or any other provision for treatment through the season and in the run up to competition.

Jack first presented with a lengthy history of shoulder pain so bad it prevented him from sleeping at night. This had been persisting for weeks and he had simply been pushing through the pain. 3 treatments in and a slight adjustment in technique and Jack is no longer in pain and the weight keeps going up and up.

Competing at just below 105kgs this weekend, Jack is aiming to lift over 650kgs across 3 single lifts including the bench press, squat and deadlift. Whilst already lifting well over half a ton, Jack is still classed as a junior in the rankings. With 500kgs being the minimum requirement for a senior competitor Jack is well on his way to achieving big things. We look forward to seeing what he can achieve this weekend and wish him all the best.

 

If you feel that injury and persistent aches and pain are holding you back from achieving your goals, no matter what they may be, get in touch with the clinic today to see if we can help.
