injured my back sleeping funny. Old stiff joint problem so hey ho, should be good by saturdays comp though.

but had to cut The Plan short, skip tuesday, and just press today again.

Log
3x70
3x70
1x90
1x100
1x110

Power jerks off blocks
3x70
1x90
1x110
1x120
1x127.5
5x112.5

will just continue these fives, the best kind of training for me.

squat, very narrow stance, ass to ankles
5x60
5x100
5x130

hey found a squat stance which doesnt hurt my glute injury! Even this low weight was good training because of the crazy stance and deep squats. Happy to find something like this to do Grin

Will nail these all the time after comp.

Cheshires strongest man 105kg

beautiful day, great crew of guys, great small comp overall, very happy i entered.

Quick comp run through. Weighed in at 104.7.

Overhead medley - 105 log, 110 axle, 54 dumbell, 120 barbell with tyres.

Got them all which i was happy about, but no one placed between seb nailing log only and me being slowest of the guys who nailed all, so didnt really cash anything in. 4th place.

140kg farmers hold for time

40.xx seconds, about half a second MORE than grip beast millsy!!! 3rd place?

Arm over arm - big van uphill.

Awesome event, weight just right. Millsy beasted it in 22 seconds, i did about 38 and placed midtable. Had a bad technique but didnt have the grip strength to do it any better i think.

310 yoke 20m uphill

tough, 23 seconds i think, didnt drop but was just slow...

240 axle deadlift for reps

felt HEAVY! Not sure if it really was 240... but hey its the same weight for everyone. Funny enough i thought this is my worst event of the day and i got 3 reps, and for some weird reason that was enough for 3rd place Grin winners ben and seb nailed 10 reps and me 3rd with 3, millsy 2 lol! Thats strongman for you...

medley, 100 farmers, 2 x 100g sandbag, 20m each.

went up first and set a slow time. just no speed in my legs.

lessons learned:

Been doing comps which have been so heavy that i have not done any speed work. Back to the start with all that, making sure i have the leg speed and fitness which used to be good.

strongman is fun Happy

sounds like you had a great time mate, you need this kinda comp too, it does you good (not just you).
MEGA positives you are underplaying - 23 second 20m 310 yoke run and finishing overhead medley with only 2 other guys!

thanks guys. Yes there are positives and something to build on going onwards.

good to meet you too today teddy, good graft today!

The Plan has been laid down now for the rest of the year. Involves no gimmicks or crazy goals, i have made some nice progress this year and now just want to solidify the gains and build a base to start my next years build up.

in other words, repping graft will continue with slow and steady increases in weight.

Glute injury held up ok today, painful when deadlifting but its clearly getting better. Tons of more work needed to get it fully healed.

I was a disappointing 5th on the hold mate. I might have a good grip, but not when I don't train it. Also there were some beastly grip guys there today.

Joni was very good today!

Great competing with you today mate, you looked fit, strong and well.

I got it wrong btw - you beat me on the overhead you bast! Both 39.something but you just ahead.

And you forgot to log the 3 100kg farmers & sanbag runs after the medley - didn't hang about on starting on the speed-work training!
