Don't worry about it I have no access to a block so will be going in having never done it. All adds to the fun I suppose.

Welcome to my attempt at starting a journal, thought I would start by saying a little about myself.

I'm 24 years old, I started training last may after spending 8 months being a fat, lazy f*ck and thought it was about time I started doing some sort of exercise after stopping playing rugby. Originally started training more as a bodybuilder while trying to lose weight. After about 5 months of training I realised I wasn't really interested in bodybuilding and would rather be strong, that coupled with my discovery of twitter and speaking to amateur and professional strongmen made my mind up for me as I already was a fan of the sport. After getting some much needed training advice and the discovery of a gym near by that had strongman equipment I started training for strength in January this year. To say I had a poor basis was an understatement, I had rarely deadlifted with my PB being 160 kg, never squatted or really trained legs to be honest and my bench was about 110 kg.

If I haven't bored any of you to death yet, I have now started training events and my current stats are:

Height: just under 6' 4"

Weight: 135 kg (with more fat than I like to admit)

Deadlift: 240 kg

Squat: 160 kg but think I have at least 170 kg in me

Bench: 150 kg

Push Press: 110 kg

Strict Press: 80 kg

Log Press: 97 kg

One arm dumbbell press: 63 kg

I'm pretty new to events and log pressing so hoping to get my log press up soon. I've got my first competition this sunday 24th June so jumped in at the deep end but I am looking forward to competing and progressing.

Thanks for reading and I'll try to keep it as updated as possible. Unfortunately I haven't got any videos as yet but am hoping to soon.

I bought the strength shop lions and have got on with them really well. Comfortable, good quality and relatively cheap.

Another question I meant to put on the original post is how long after competitions do you wait to go back to training?

I clipper it no. 2 or 3 depending on which one I can find. Covers the rapidly receeding hairline well.

This may sound mental but i used to stack bumper plates on top of each other and clean press them very similar movementwith the added bonus of potential deathGrin

That is what i might have to do as we don't have a block.

Steady. Happy with how my axle cleans went since I had never done them before.

no need to drink a s**tload of anything. If you are sweating like mad then drink up to a max of 1ltr per hour but unless sweating is dripping off you then you can probably half that

Being a fat f*cker its more than likely going to be near a litre Tongue
