I built a nice partition wall in the garden for stuff, but ended up filling that with breezeblocks. Side of the house is much clearer. Got 5 chickens and a rooster. More gardening (only edible stuff, of course)

Yaman, whatís your PB fish (either by weight or just best catch) since youíve been out there? Iím more than a little jealous of your access to fishing opportunities. Do you sell any btw?

Does anyone know which channel/ dates WSM 2020 will be on this Christmas?

Also, I've somehow managed to avoid finding out who won, so please avoid mentioning in this thread if possible.
» Strength decline with age? (Go to post)16-12-2020 @ 21:44 
Yaman I must point out that my use of Ďdeadísí to refer to deadlifts was a mistake on my phoneís part.

I realise that grammar is a very serious matter. I did of course mean Ďdeadsí.
» Strength decline with age? (Go to post)16-12-2020 @ 21:38 
Yaman, Iíd be surprised if youíre experiencing age-related decline yet, although I suppose itís possible. Having said that, I canít remember what back/ knee(?) injuries youíve had in the past, but I guess that could influence deadís as well as squat.

I gave myself a minor back scuppering (1 slightly bulged disc - ďconsistent with ageĒ I was told) which has made squatting difficult, although box squatting is OK. Am sure I could still get stronger than I was before on deads, but wouldnít feel comfortable due to back as poundages past a certain level.

How about your body weight? Are you as heavy as you were when you did those numbers before?

Iím currently getting more satisfaction from almost having visible abs at 40, than I did from being slightly stronger than a regular gym goer in my early 30s.

Iíve recently been rewatching all the old WSMs including heats - starting at 94 anyway. A couple of things have struck me:

-Some of the early events/ equipment were soooo dangerous (eg. Horrible-looking anchor for distance carry/ medley)

-When Z popped up he was already so good, mixing it with the best in multiple events

-Pudz (and Dyymek even more so) so athletic. Thereís one year where theyíre all standing wait deep in a pool at the start of their intro scene and have to climb out. Dymek did a two footed jump out of nearly waist deep water

-Pudz was so light when he first appeared (about 123 I think) and was so much bigger (just over 140) by 2007. He looked huge at that weight with his frame.

-As mentioned above Magnus Samuelson also transformed himself. Lean 120ish to a huge 150Kg guy.

-Mark Westerby.... maybe one of the most naturally gifted in terms of size and strength genetics. Apparently hadnít lifted a weight until age 38!! Also won squat in one of the qualifiers.

Do you mean my Eddie Hall-eque inability to get hydrated? I actually got a little cold in bed this afternoon. I also put my old man slippers on about half an hour ago. Winter is coming!

No I meant you kindly paying your Nanís water bill and then her cheerfully splurging the whole lot on a single aubergine

Sorry but so had to lol at your water woes for a moment. Was quite an amusing image. I hope allís well though.

Is anyone else following Andy Boltonís progress? Heís just posted a video of him doing 300X5. Itís so impressive IMO given all the health problems heís had. Heís apparently also a lot lighter now.

Wayne, I saw this and was immediately concerned about your training...

Argos is getting rid of its catalogue. Will you still be able to train or do you have enough old ones lying around?

With the lifter actually taking the weight?

I remember seeing Andy Bolton going for a squat (think it was 520 he wanted) and finding out once it was loaded onto his back that it was 560.
