Apart from the overhead press. But what we can do in training means nothing come comp day, Lichfield I dropped 10kg to in 3weeks and I paid the price, but Rotherham's I was 100% and you excelled smashing P.B's left, right and centre. I got beat fair and square whilst weighing 13kg? less!. I still think Yorkshire's could go either way.

Good luck in the juniors by the way.

Final session training with my colleague tonight. I've been so fortunate and got loads of pointers to work on.

Bench
60x5
100x5
120x2
130x1 felt easy
140x0 failed mentally before I even lowered it
140x0 brought it down to high on my chest stupidly got close but just couldn't drive it through and wasted loads of energy on the last lift. Definitely can do this weight.
120x6 PB tried for a seventh rep but it just buried me.

Squat - wasn't expecting much as legs were still a bit tired from Mondays comp.
60x5
100x5
Belt on
140x3 felt heavy
Dbl ply wraps loose
180x1 felt good
Wraps tight
200x1 felt good
215x1 PB felt like it took and age to get out the bottom but he said it went up quick and reckoned I've got a potential for another 15kg in my current condition.

Just that took 2hours and although I was getting a rest it still went really quick.

Massive hangover from last night and food and water has been terrible all day too.

Deadlift
60kgx5
60x5
100x5
140x5
180x5 d.o.h

260 kept failing. Recorded an attempt and my form is shocking.

Barrel loading
90kg to top for a couple of demo runs. Felt heavy. Wanted to go home but was persuaded to do to some more.
90.100.110.145pb managed to get myself focused and did a really quick run including loading the 145 which I've never managed before even on its own.
90.100.110.145 even quicker this time :-)

Competed in England most powerful u105kg today.
Event 1
320kg Yoke 25m -3rd
Heaviest comp Yoke I've done, felt really good. Dropped it once due to trying to go a touch too quick, still had a quick time.

Event 2
120kg log -0reps
15kg above my pb but had been talking myself I to doing it all week. Got there and the log was really awkward even when empty. Really hard to clean which I never struggle with. Luckily 4 other people didn't manage this either.

Farmers - 115kg 50m -5th
Was supposed to be 130kg but the rain and Cobbles meant it was reduced for saftey, shame as my grip would have helped on the heavier weight. Put in a good run, was only a second off 1st it was really close.

Was sitting 4th at this point, then it all went wrong.

260kg Van deadlift 15" side handles -9th
Completely lost my head, didn't get my air in, didn't tense my lats etc, pulled it and threw up in my mouth and twinged my back. Only got 1 rep. Rubbish

Barrel 25m medley. 2 70kg plastic and 1 100kg beer keg.
Put a good stint in on the 1st two, then just burnt out and failed about 20m down the course. Devastated.

I came 7th overall 1 place off a guaranteed spot for UK u105kg. I went into the comp just to enjoy it and tried not to come last which I didn't. But after the first 3 events I thought I was on track for a good position. Was disappointed with myself.

Got home and got home and had a message to say 1 guy can't make the u105, so I've managed to get a spot into the uks.
