Currently in a hotel gym doing machine workouts bra, so thought I would write up from Midlands u90 at the weekend.

Monday 30/5

Midlands Strongest Man u90kg

Build up went ok considering all issues, just had no deadlift sessions at all, so had no idea how my back would hold up at the comp.

Got there nice and early and weighed in at 88.1kg in t-shirt and joggers, all the Gainz. Had no idea about how good anyone else was and knew max deadlift was first, so was really nervous, to the point where I couldn't eat or drink anything. First time I've get like that for about 2 years.

Event 1 - max deadlift

220 was the opener, the increments of 20 up to 270, then 10s. Everyone had to lift the opener, then could jump in and out. Decided I would just lift till my back felt s**t.

Hit 220, 240, 260 then a very easy 270 and then hit the best 280 I've ever hit, so was made up. I then got called for 290 after about 2 mins rest, had a bash, got it to the knee, but no good. Could have carried on pulling, but felt it would be counterproductive for my back, so settled for 280. Was good enough for 3rd, so was made up and all nerves gone.

280kg - 3rd place

Event 2 - 100kg axel, one clean then reps from the chest

Anything but a win here and I would of been pissed off. Pressing has become a strength and wanted to capitalise on an event where I could use my pressing strength and fitness. Clean felt featherweight and then basically strict pressed the first 5. Hit 10 and then triceps went. Cleaned it up and jerked another just inside the buzzer for a nice set of 11. Good enough for the win.

11 reps - 1st place

Event 3 - 260kg yoke x12m into 110kg farmers x12m into 120kg duck walk x12m

Another good event for me, so was optimistic. Absolutely belted through yoke and farmers, just slowed slightly with the duck because midget legs. Finished in 23 seconds, but was beaten by a long legged mcdaddy by 2 seconds. Was pleased with 2nd mind.

23 seconds - 2nd place

.5 points of the lead at the break, happy days. Needed it though as I had 2 stinking events to follow.

Event 4 - car Herculeas hold

Won't even write about this. Was first out, didn't get full tension on right hand, brakes off, popped out of hand. PAR!

1.4 seconds - 10th place, LOAL

Event 5 - tyre toss

Nervous about this. 2 years ago, no one got all 6 tyres, I was out last and watched everyone get all 6. f**k! So got fired up and came out and blasted first 4 over before you could blink, missed the 5th and had to do it again, same with the double tyre (6th one), but got them all in just under 50 seconds. Comp rescued and just about guaranteed podium.

All 6 tyres in 49 seconds - 3rd place

Event 6 - 180kg squat for reps

Looking forward to this. Had big numbers in my head. Unracked, felt light, hit 7 reps in 25 seconds, then on 8th lost balance and folded over a bit, was still coming up, but spotters caught me and bought me up, which ended my lift. Shouted no no when they grabbed me as I knew I wasn't failing, but I suppose they were doing their job. Got offered the chance to go again, but was clear in third anyway, and could of only come second, so not much point.

7 reps - 7th place

Overall - 3rd place and qualification for England's for third year in a row.

Happy enough and now feel ready to bring my best to England's. No hard feelings to the spotters, will just have to do 10+ reps on 200 at England's.

On we go.

Thanks for the follow mighty Boar, I will follow back in a second.

I always have a great time down the Pit, the General is the man, and Mark and Kyle are awesome. Would be lovely to see a Boar comeback down there. Liam did it the other week and was superb.

The headband is now a part of me, it's become me. Surely you have seen worse on the cycling scene, those fools will wear anything?
