Hi everyone. Thought it was about time I started a journal so here it is. Bit of background. Have trained with weights since I was kid mainly focussing on bodybuilding. After doing two bodybuilding comps last year I've begun to realise that it's time for a change and having been inspired by Tony, Boar and Pagan have decided to give strongman a go. Plan is to do a u105k comp next year. Have trained at Oly Sports Gym a few times so hopefully a few people know who I am. Currently weigh in around 107k so plan is to maintain this and focus on strength (but still look like a bodybuilder lol).

Nicely done on the deadlift PB.

What BB comps did you do & how did you get on?

Good luck with the strongman stuff, its definately more fun to compete in and train for than BB.

Ah , reading again I see it was 3 singles not a set of 3 but thats still bloody good going for the amount of log training I guess you have done.
