Haway lads just get your hand in your pockets and do the comp.

there are six of us coming over from the north east to compete.

really like the push pull format, plus the bench can be used as a british qualifier.

baldy said:I did the Unit20 first timers last year and loved every second of it. If anyone is considering it, I say get your name down and do it.

Having a goal to aim towards will help you make great gains in strength and the atmosphere at the unit is great for comps. Everyone is very friendly and supportive.

Will try arrange a romantic Edinburgh weekend treat for the misses on this weekend. Happy

carefull lookwhat happened to smuk and his romantic weekend lol

Also i train with a couple of lads who will be intersted in competing.

The gym where i train is not geared up for strongman so does any one know anywhere close to newcastle with strongman facilities

buzz said:Both these comps are full up, but you can do the 1st timers if you want. There were folk in it last year with bigger squat and deadlift numbers. Always a pretty broad range in it, and as long as it's your first strongman comp it's fine with me.
Cheers mate i will give the first timers a go.

Just new to this strongman thing with regards to the events is the axle from the floor every rep or power clean once and then just rep it out, as i want to have a go. thought about the first timers comp but some guys on the forum thought it would be too light. Also the inch dumbbell is that basicly just grip and rep touching the shoulder every rep. sorry for the ignorance but want to practice right.
