The Weightlifting Lawyer – Troy Atkin – S5EP28

This week on the Legally Speaking Podcast, our host Robert Hanna welcomes Trainee Solicitor, Troy Atkin… or The Weightlifting Lawyer as you may know him!

Troy is currently in the first seat of his Training Contract and is based in the Commercial Department in the Portsmouth office of Biscoes Solicitors. Troy is due to qualify in March 2023.

Alongside this (and given the name!), Troy is a national level powerlifter, taking 3rd place at the British Bench Competition, 2022 and 2021. Troy documents his fitness and mental health journey on his popular Instagram page, @the_weightlifting_lawyer.

In this episode, we discuss the following:

  • What it means to have an ‘elite’ mindset in law
  • The importance of mental health
  • Troy’s weightlifting journey and how it’s documented on his Instagram
  • Balancing fitness training and solicitor training
  • Protecting yourself in the digital world
