We support the nursing and midwifery family to help them through tough times.


On the 17th January I am attempting to lift 71,000 kgs within 24 hours. The  71,000 kgs represents the amount of people that have died in England due to COVID 19

The charity I have chosen is Cavell Nurses Trust, we are all aware of the sacrifice being made by nursing staff currently during this crisis and the potential long term effects to their own lives. Having had two grandparents hospitalised with Covid 19 this is obviously very personal to me.

Cavell  support nurses whether working or retired, with money and support when they are living through personal or financial hardship, often because of illness, domestic abuse, disability, working poverty and older age.Put simply, they  are there for nurses when they need it. 

The attempted plan is as follows

Back squat 100kg x 10 reps = 1000 kg x 11 sets =


Deadlift 100kg x 10 reps = 1000kg x 11 sets = 11,000 kg

Bench 90kg x 10  reps = 900 kg x 10 sets = 9,000 kg

Leg extension 50 kg x 30 reps = 1500 kg x 10 sets = 15,000 kg

Shoulder press 60 kg x 10 reps = 600 kg x 10 sets = 6,000 kg

Bicep hammer curls 10kg x 50 reps = 500 kg x 6 sets = 3000 kg

Bent over row 100 kg x 10 = 1000 kg x 10 sets = 10,000 kg

Tricep extension 10kg x 50 reps x 6 sets = 3000 kg

Chest flys 30kg  x 20 reps = 600 kg x 5 sets  =3000 kg

Total kgs = 71,000
