Starting a log here.

The next three weeks should have the strapline 'desperate last minute preparation for UK Strongman North which I should have started on weeks ago...'

Monday 8th June
First Events session for a while, down at Northwich on a balmy June evening.

Log
85kg 3*1 - a couple of light runs with farmers in between these to warm up
95kg*1
100kg*1
105kg*fail
Wanted to see where I was at. Up to 100kg felt smooth and quick, couldn't really get any push into 105. Got gassed surprisingly easy.

Truck tyre deadlift
220kg*1
220kg*2
240kg*1
270kg*1 - horrible, mostly back
270kg*1 - far better, pushed from the feet

Farmers' walk
110kg per hand*20m
110kg per hand*20m
130kg per hand*not very far
s**t. The handles on these are very thick. Felt good with 110 but I just lost all stability and grip with 130. Must work on these as this should be one of the few events I don't look like a t**t in.

Went home.

hey james, do they have the truck tyre deadlift there to try out with the same platform they will be using on the day?

if so, i think i will pop down for a session and give that deadlift and thick bas***d farmers a try!

Yes. I'm going to try and get down a couple of times a week in the afternoon (I work about 2 minutes away), so if you're planning to go down and want someone to train with, then let me know. Otherwise plenty train there on Saturday and Sunday (as I'm sure you know).

Are you going to do the opens again?

not sure if i am ready mate... pressing is still s**t, and deadlift wasnt good even last year Grin

But i am tempted. Northwich heats could still be a possibility giving me few more weeks to prepare.

Which one are you doing?

I'm going to do the Northwich Open heat in early July. I have no real chance of qualifying, but want to make an improvement on last year (I was severely outclassed - did the same heat as Shawn and several other beasts).

As ever, Mark has not held back on the weights, so the log and maybe stones will make me look stupid, but that's just because I need to get stronger.

might do that one as well so we can be embarrassed together Grin

log - no danger of me nailing a rep

but i need to pull a rep on the deadlift, otherwise no point in going for it.

I'll speak to shawn and see if he is up for a sessin in your neck of woods at some point.

Sounds like a plan. It would be good to see some fresh faces, especially in the week. If you really want a treat, we could give the shield a try...

I'd definitely give the deadlift a go if I were you. I think it requires a slightly different approach and set up, more like a rack pull really.

As for that log, I will probably be going through the motions on competition day. On a different log I would have a chance, but not that one.

Wednesday 10th June

Push press
60kg 2*5
80kg*5
90kg*3
100kg*2
100kg*3
102.5kg*3
105kg*3

Front squat
60kg*5
100kg 2*3
140kg*1
160kg*1
175kg FAIL

Back squat
60kg*3
100kg*3
140kg*3
180kg*1
200kg*1
210kg*1
220kg*1

Apart from the push press I have no idea what the hell I was doing or why. Should have done a few 3s with 140-160 on the fronts and why I did back squats...I have no idea. Just highlights the danger of going in without a plan!

Tried to finish off with some narrowish grip bench, but my left wrist started complaining and I left it there. Went home a little disgruntled.
