Cheers guys, but things havent gone to plan since then.

My little boy ended up in hospital again and at one point was air ambulanced to Aberdeen. He is ok now, but it meant no training, little food and sleep. Not good prep at all. Thankfully he is a lot better now, and got home and settled.

Popped in quickly just to do something, as not training from last thurs until the comp on sat is too long.

Squat - comp setup but couple of inches deeper
100x3
150x1
200x1
100x5
100x5

Behind neck axle
70 for lots of 1s 2s and 3s just playing with tech

Foam rolling

Competed in my local comp yesterday. We had an open and a novice, and all in all it was a great day despite missing out on the comp win.

Event 1Car deadlift
This was an utter disaster. After the novices they added 3 16 stone guys to the back of the car making it a deadlift if close to 400kg from about 16". The only guy that got a lift was so short he could get his knees under and jack it up his legs. He got 1 rep. I tried to say beforehand that it would be too heavy with the guys they put in, but none listened.
equal last with everyone but the winner

Event 2 Loading medley 2*100 sandbag, 2*120 keg and fire engine wheel
Course seemed to be pretty far, close to 15m i think. Shouldered the sacks as they had to be loaded pretty high, pretty easy. First keg also really easy, but legs started to tire on the 2nd one but loaded it fine, got the wheel about half way and ran out of time. Fastest for 4 items and only one to take the wheel anywhere.
1st place

Event 3 Viking Press 140kg
Luxury of going last, but had just watched Dhanni do an absolutely phenomenal 18 reps, but 2nd place had 8. Knocked out an easy 9 but knew i wasn't going to get 18+ so saved energy
2nd place

Event 4 Max Squat
Squat with tractor tyres on down to boxes set for each persons height. Had 4 lifts. Did 270 but failed 285. Pretty disappointing
2nd place

Event 5 Arm over arm in to chain drag
I had mentioned that i thought the arm over arm was too light, but should have said nothing as instead of making it heavier they had us drag the chain back which i am terrible at. Finished the arm over arm fastest but was slowing the drag. Fumbled the chain too which cost me time
3rd place

Stones 100 to 160
Was spent by now. Loaded the first 4 fine but the 5th was really dusty. Lapped and couldn't seem to get it to go anywhere. Tacky lost its stick but more problematic was that i was wearing slippy shorts and the stone kept sliding on them. Dropped it before the lip and couldn't find anus energy to try again. Poor performance.
3rd place

Overall 2nd, few mistakes and kinda disappointed but Dhanni had an awesome day and fully deserved his win

Pretty sore today, but flying out to Belfast on Wednesday as reserve, but been told its quite likely i will end up competing

Unfortunatley i was the title holder and wasn't in very good nick coming into the comp alot of niggles, may have won the deadlift but it was misloaded, came 2nd in chain medley and won stones so came 3rd. Having next 2 months of rehab and lightwork before the run up to qaulifier in january probably

Cheers Benvie, although UK events are pretty tough for me.

Cheers John

Neil, we were told the car would be filled with kids, so the message has got mixed somewhere.

Colin, you should know better than anyone what it is. I think everyone thinks they would have won the deadlift.

Mark, cheers mate, you should come up for one of the comps, think you would enjoy it.
