2 weeks out due to illness, still not recovered 10 months on. I'd definitely listen to what V.G said - work on what you want to get your numbers to, not what they are at the moment.

I'll post a video of the noise my knee makes if/when it locks out when standing. Given that deadlifts, farmers walks and clean and press will all need legs to be straightened, it might mean I'm out.

» Which is safer , Raw, single ply or multi ply lifting for powerlifting? (Go to post)18-10-2012 @ 12:44 
Belt and wraps is the safest I think. RAW raw puts too much stress on the knees, especially ones where you've got to squat very deep. Multiply definitely places more stress on the joints.

Technogym sell a product called a Top Xt, which is a flywheel attached to a couple of handles with a seat. It's designed for the disabled, so the seat comes out to park a wheelchair. This means an able bodied person can do it standing up, or use the seat that locks in. Anyone with a broken leg, recent leg injury such as torn hamstring, no legs or just looking to increase endurance in their upper body can use this machine. Only thing is Technogym is a bit on the pricey side.

After being ill for TWO weeks at the beginning of the year, I got set back a lot. I've almost recovered, but still not where I used to be. February I joined a local gym with mirrors and 10 stone guys doing bicep poses left, right and centre. Still, 22.49 a month and right on my doorstep so can't complain.

Feb 2012 - Squat - 140kg x 3, Deadlift 170kg x 3, Bench 100kg x 3?

Aim is to get decent at strongman, so squat, deadlift/rack pull and shoulders. I don't train events too often, but usually I do OK at them come the big day.

Weigh the keg when empty. Weigh it when full of water. Find out the cubic capacity of the keg (every litre of water it holds = 1 litre. Remember to subtract the weight of the keg itself) Multiply this by 2.4, then add the keg weight back and you get what it'll weigh when full of cement.

It's all about relative density. Concrete is about 2,400kg per Cubic metre, so 2.4kg per Cubic litre. Water is 1.0kg per cubic litre. for 80kg of mix, you'd need 33.3 Cubic litres of cement. A 10 litre bucket will hold 24kg of cement when full to the brim, so you'd need a little over 3 of these. I'd be willing to bet it'll take a while to set as it's in a confined space. As water will be lost during the curing process, i'd go a little OVER and make it about 90kg when wet to account for water loss.

Simeon said:3 bags of sand and one of cement

Would make 75kg, plus maybe 5kg for the barrel. Would he not be adding any water to the mixture?

I reckon 3:1 would need about 10-15litres or so of water, so he'd have a bit left over.
