dr_hazbun said:My current gym has only one bar, one rack and a limited number of plates.

I work in with randoms almost every time I lift. It's to be expected and I just have to bear it. There are other aspects I enjoy about that gym and they make up for the inconvenience.

There was one time I was deadlifting and was right at the start of my workout. Some guy wanted to squat so I ended up doing a set of deads, stripping the bar, then placing it in the rack, loading it for his squats, he'd do a set, we'd then strip the bar down agin, place it on the floor, load it up again, I'd do my set and repeat! Farcical! I was f**ked by the end of it.

Michael Abdullah represented Japan in WSM 1997 and 1998, but he wasn't originally from there.

i found the chinese dude on wikipedia, in heat 2 with terry's_Strongest_Man

but they don't have the 2006 heats/qualifiers on youtube, damn
» Are there any Chinese or Japanese Strongmen? (Go to post)01-07-2011 @ 18:37 
I was just wondering why the vast majority of strongmen at WSM level are mostly white males, and I have never seen an oriental strongman.

Powerlifting and olympic weightlifting is fairly popular in Japan and China, although I don't recall seeing any superheavies from out there.

Are there any big chinese dudes doing strongman?

this is an unusual routine, what are your goals mate?
» Madcows 5 x 5.. (Go to post)01-07-2011 @ 18:30 
Moved house this morning so trained in the afternoon instead.

Weigh in: 95 kg

Bench Press:

50 kg x 5
62.5 kg x 5
75 kg x 5
87.5 kg x 5

102.5 kg x 3
75 kg x 15 (failure)

My triple on 102.5 kg wasn't that bad, I could have done a 4th, but not a 5th I reckon.


60 kg x 5
72.5 kg x 5
87.5 kg x 5
102.5 kg x 5

120 kg x 3
87.5 kg x 20!

The triple on 120 kg was done fairly strictly, all the way down and with a straight back, no long pauses. The 20 repper on 87.5 kg was pretty bad, but not as bad afterwards as i thought 20 reps would be, i probably was only just hitting parallel for this in my opinion.

A couple of guys in front of me were talking about how strong and built their mate was. When one of them said how his mate could shoulder press 27.5 kg DB's, I snorted with laughter and nearly dropped the bar haha. I also controlled my urge to go over there and do presses with &rt; 27.5 kg DBs haha

Pendlay rows:

45 kg x 5
57.5 kg x 5
65 kg x 5

77.5 kg x 3
57.5 kg x 8

Easy, just working 100% on keeping form

Standing Dumbell presses (strict one arm unless stated otherwise):

LHS & RHS: 22.5 kg x 5, 32.5 kg x 5, 32.5 kg x 5

Push Press LHS: 37.5 kg x 3, 37.5 kg x 3 Pleased with this

Push Press RHS: 37.5 kg x 3, 37.5 kg x 4, failed 5th, 42.5 kg x 1, 45 kg (Fail)

went for my old PB of 42.5 kg on RHS, it literally flew up with leg drive, unlike the hard grind on the triceps it was last time. Was feeling confident about 45 kg, but completely failed that.


Some bugger lost the dipping belt, so I had to get my rucksack out and fill it with plates:

BW x 20
+16 kg x 8
+26 kg x 6

Wide Grip Pull ups:

Am changing my stratergy and going for 25 reps in as few sets as possible:


Decent session I think

Haha, i'm sure those guys are lovely, and I am really looking to forward to seeing and possibly meeting celebrities like Mr Hollands and Big Loz.
» The British log lift champs 2011 !! (Go to post)29-06-2011 @ 18:23 
Daft question maybe, but do you think this will be a big spectator event? I don't want to be the only "little" guy not lifting

Weigh in: 95 kg

Overhead Press:

42.5 kg x 5
50 kg x 5
60 kg x 5

(All of these reps done touch and go)

67.5 kg x 5 PB and 1 push press to finish (all reps paused)

Was quite pleased with this, it was extremly hard though, on rep 5 I had the right hand side pushed up before the left, as per usual when on the point of failure. I knew there was no way in hell an extra (strict) rep would go up, so push pressed one up Grin

Recovery squats:

60 kg x 5
72.5 kg x 5
87.5 kg x 5
87.5 kg x 5


50 kg x 8
100 kg x 5
130 kg x 5

Chalk on for the first time and alternate grip:

150 kg x 9 PB (hitched last one)

Chalk was awesome, even better than straps for grip. For once it was my leg and back strength that prevented me getting an extra rep as opposed to grip.

I felt like getting a new PB for confidence:

172.5 kg x 1 PB

Previous PB of 170 kg set 2 months ago was much easier, so my deadlifting isn't quite at all time record level yet. I find that my grip doesn't need strap or chalk for 1RM work (previous PB done without them), but I benefit from it with higher rep work.

DB seated shoulder presses:

32.5 kg x 8 (not failure)
32.5 kg x 8 (failure)
32.5 kg x 7 (failure)


Perpendicular pull ups:

BW x 17
BW x 10
BW x 9

First set took a lot out of me haha

Hammer curls 2 sets, arms knackered

tried this on my 70 kg brother. i find it too difficult to get hand grip on his knee
» WSM wrestling (Go to post)27-06-2011 @ 16:22 
haha, fair enough guys, it wouldn't really be a true strongman event i guess.

That said I would pay good money to watch Z and Shaw wrestle it out, I get the distinct impression that they don't like each other very much.

i thought everyone had heard of madcows? its pretty similar to bill starrs 5 x 5
