Cheers lads.

I guess it felt better as it got heavier because I had to think more about the squat and less about the pain Happy

Should be better next week

Dropping this back on the back is horrible, just about broke myself. Could do a lot more but fear of f**king up the drop stopped me

Yeah, which is fine when youtime it right, not so good when you dont. Mostly I lowered it slowly like some kind of horrific negative rep, which was way harder than the press.

I would never normally do it, but it is in a comp that depending on work I might now be doing in August.

I have gone from just having our local comp in August, to possibly having 3 in 3 weeks. Got a job interview next week which might mean I get to do none of them though

August will end up with me doing somewhere between 0 and 3 of North Isles Strongest Man, UKs Strongest Man and the Scottish Arnold qual that Cherrie is running.

For going offshore mate. Need a new challenge and money is better. I havent really started looking properly, just speculatively stuck an application for a job I didnt think I would get.

All in the same day I got my final voluntary redundancy paperwork through with confirmed figures and dates, got invited for an interview and got a call asking me to do UKs

If I get the job I will probably have to turn it down though, so its all a bit up in the air.

Day one looks really hard.

Max behind the neck press (140 start weight)
wrestling

Ha ha, maybe i should wear a mask incase it doesn't go well.

Nick, it is deffinately a skill thing in many ways, but strength and more importantly size/weight can be a factor.

I recall seeing Jimmy Marku struggle with the wrestling due to bodyweight, despite him being a wrestler in the past
