Why couldn't it still be "England's"?

England's last year was a small event - small venue, small crowd, just 4 events.

My current PB is an ugly 121 at a similar bodyweight!

A weightlifting background is such a useful asset in strongman.

Yeah mate, did bench, bicep and upright rows lol etc only for 6 years or so

When I was doing my heavy squats today I was chuckling to myself at the people around me training their beach muscles!!

Training properly, as in DL & squatting etc, about 18 months

Is that all??

I've done "proper" training for about 5 years, but I've played with weights since I was a teenager.

This will be called "England's Strongest Man u105"?

What are your comp plans for the rest of the season?

I'm a reserve for the UK's, so I need to make sure I'm worthy of that, in case I'm needed.

Doing Will's intermediate comp later in the year.

Apart from that, nothing! I was half tempted by the Sheringham comp, but it's "novice/intermediate" level, and I avoid the word "novice" at all costs now!

Just got back from gym. Wasn't really in the mood for training as I have an ear infection which is pissing me off! Last night I threw my pillow at the wardrobe in anger!!!


Warmed up with 70Kg. I wondered why it didn't feel right, and then realised the bar was banana-shaped! Switched to a different bar.

100 x 1
110 x 1
111 x 1
111 x 1
111 x 1



60 x 4
100 x 2
140 x 2
180 x 1
200 x 1


220 x 1 - easy!
235 x 1 - PB!! (no belt, no spotter!)

Finished with some PLATE PINCHING. Not much strength in left hand today!

Come to think of it, I think Samulson won the round. Was it not at that comp his mate/brother organised. Bit of controversy about the events being hand picked for him?

Super Series, Sweden.

Poundstone won that event. Samuelsson 2nd or joint 2nd.

It was in either BSM or WSM a couple of years ago im sure. They had a f**king snowmobile or something on a rig and they had to bench it for reps.

It wasn't BSM or WSM.

Bench training is non-essential in strongman.

Being EXCESSIVELY muscle-bound from benching can make it impossible/difficult to lock arms out overhead. I was watching some old WSM footage of Riku Kiri. He had difficulty locking his arms out overhead (not through lack of strength), but was a 300+ bencher. It cost him a place in the WSM 1997 final.
