About Strength Coach

Lawrence Farncombe

After 25 years of coaching, the achievement I am most proud of relates to the number of athletes I’ve helped become champions. I’ve worked as an S&C coach for athletes in a variety of sports to achieve British, European and World titles. I’ve coached numerous lifters to compete at IPF level. Which is considered to be the highest level for the sport of powerlifting. I think this, more than anything else, validates what I do.
My credentials are vast and varied, as I’ve travelled the world coaching and learning from some of the most esteemed coaches. I believe that if you wish to implement the most effective training methodologies, it takes considerable experience to correctly apply this knowledge effectively.
I’ve had many of my training systems published within a wide range of publications. I’ve competed at national and international levels, winning both British and European Championships. Therefore when coaching, I am able to utilise my personal experience of competing in powerlifting and combative sports, when coaching.

Here are just a few of my credentials to give you a better idea of the areas I specialise in.

  • UKSCA accredited S&C coach
  • National level Powerlifting referee
  • BWL level 2 Weightlifting coa
  • PICP 4 Level international S&C coach
