Michaela Breeze, 63Kg class. She clean & jerked 100Kg in Beijing, but has done 120Kg (national record).

Denise Lewis CAN'T have power cleaned 115Kg.

Our only female weightlifter in the Olympics (Michaela?) was cleaning and jerking around the 100/110 mark, if I remember correctly, although she was struggling with an injury.

I'm very surprised and sceptical about these claimed lifts. Maybe Edwards's "power clean" was more of a squat clean? A top athlete would have the flexibility/skill to perform weightlifting movements.

Ha ha ha! Thanks for the suggestions. No positive ID yet though!

When I arrived home from work last night (approx 11.30pm) I saw a HUGE bat-like creature (wings certainly looked bat-like) which squawked VERY loudly - like a parrot! What could it have been? Anyone know of any very large nocturnal birds that squawk? A bat surely couldn't have been that size.

Thanks for clearing that up, JC! So we need to get through 2 comps to get to Britain's in 2009!

Good lifting JC. Do you wrap your knees?
» Englands Strongest Man u105kg Southern qualifier 2009 (Go to post)12-11-2008 @ 11:30 
Can someone clarify the planned structure of comps for 2009 for me.

Is this comp "England's Strongest Man u105" and a qualifier for "Britain's Strongest Man u105"?

Or is it a QUALIFIER for "England's Strongest Man u105"?

Is this correct -

3 qualifiers for England's,
Britain's (guys who qualified from England's and Scotland's)???

Where do Wales and Ireland come in?

I'm confused!

Have you been inspired by reading my dead lift advice to Will, or do you train these normally anyway?! Ha ha! I'm a great fan of these. How high are the handles from the ground?

Very very impressive stuff!

Thats a great piece of equipment Will! Count me in the comp when it happens! Grin


I won a Silver Dollar Dead Lift event in one comp I did! Kit was pretty much identical to yours. Lifted a comfortable 330Kg - enough to win. Being very short does have occasional advantages!
» Will's Strongman Log (Go to post)07-11-2008 @ 15:48 
Good lifting. My push press PB is also 122.5Kg! That was with a standard bar though. Is there much difference between pressing a 1" and 2" bar?
» Will's Strongman Log (Go to post)06-11-2008 @ 13:50 
I think im always afraid itll take away from my event training (stones in particular).

That's why I don't often train barbell dead lifts. I have problems with recovery if I do, which eats into my other training. Farmer's dead lifts don't give me the same recovery issues. I guess I'm lucky that my dead lift CREEPS up without particularly having to focus on it. It would go up faster if I trained it harder, but to the detriment of other lifts, due to prolonged back soreness. By the way, I achieved my PB deep farmer's pick-up of 270Kg this morning! Did 2 singles. Went up easier than I thought.

One approach that I use is going up in SMALL (1Kg) increments. I've used that on barbell dead lifting in the past. If you lift, for example, 220 one week, go for 221 the next week, etc.

Some of my training methods could be considered unorthodox, but they work for me!

Hello Will. How about leaving barbell dead lifts for a few months and using a variation - farmer's dead lifts? You might come back stronger! It's easy to get stuck in a rut of failures and zero progress. I don't often dead lift with a barbell in training. I'm a fan of deep (mid shin) farmer's pick-ups, and I'm planning to pull 270Kg (PB) like this tomorrow. I also occasionally do high pick-up lifts (approx 300Kg). Power cleans also might help develop an explosive pull off the floor.
