Thanks Ed!

I did 230kg x 6 tonight (video is on my YouTube channel) for another PB.

Then 71kg strict log for 18 reps, then 9, 9

I also did a set of 38 wide grip chin ups, but the reps weren't full ROM at the bottom.

Wow, strong stuff!!! Cool

Many of us on here have followed the path of slimming down and coming away from strength a bit. You're still going strong! I only weigh 77kg now.

Thanks Wayne. Congrats on the weight loss! That must be close to 20kg from what I remember?

I did lose some weight and have spent a few years mountain biking and did a brief stint with rowing. However, last year my wife bought me a gym membership and I have solely focused on trying to get stronger. That went pretty well last year and then this year I have started dabbling with events again, and so far, so good.

Recent training has seen a 240kg x 4 deadlift, 260kg yoke 15m plus 15m, 130kg farmers walk 15m plus 15m, 91kg strict log x 10 and 130kg bench x 8 as well as 135kg x 5.

Good stuff! Yes, just over 20kg down! I'm 47 years old and feel very healthy. I feel that strongman gave my spine a right battering and left it vulnerable, so I don't load it at all now. I do things like (weighted) handstand press-ups, machine/cable/BW rows, Nordic hamstring curls and high rep calf work with light weights. Plus I walk a lot and sometimes cycle Happy

I know what you mean about the spine! Good to hear you've lost weight and stress happy with your greatly and training.

Bench 135kg x 6, 130kg x 6,6
Strict log 101kg x 6
Farmers walk 150kg x 15m. I tried 170kg before but only made it 6m - legs didn't feel like they were working properly because I did no warm up.
Yoke - 10m + 10m - started at 140 and went up in 20kg jumps to 260kg. Then did 280 x 10m and 300 x 10m
Tried some monster DB press - up to 58kg x 3
Steep incline BP with closish grip - up to 110kg x 8

That wasn't done in one session.
