Andrea Thompson WSW 2018

Born 22nd October 1982, in Hitchin Hertfordshire

I started training as a Strongwoman as a form of weight loss around 4 years ago and after being spotted as being crazy strong at my local strength and conditioning class. Intrigued, I decided to have a go at lifting weights.  I can now comfortably lift 250kg and I have my eye on the World Log Lift Record for 2019.

As a result of that decision in 2015, I have gone on to become Britain’s Strongest Woman three times!! More recently I travelled to North Carolina in 2018 to compete in Worlds Strongest Woman and came away with that title too.

My normal week would include training sessions 4 to 5 times a week and I follow a high protein diet to enable me to grow quality muscle and train harder and for longer.

At home, I am a married mum of 2 beautiful girls and work as an Vocational Assessor at the local college.

In 2019 I will be competing in Columbus Ohio at the Arnold’s Sports Festival as a Professional Strongwoman, Europe’s Strongest Woman, as well having a go at breaking a few World Records.  This is an exciting time for me and the sport so I am also planning to take this opportunity to visit local schools to share my experiences and raise awareness of this growing sport for women

Over the coming months, I hope to beat the World record in the log lift and defend my title as Britain’s Strongest Woman. In September, I am going to Las Vegas to compete in my first competition as a Professional Strongwoman!
