UKs Strongest Man 2014

Felt in the shape of my life going into the comp this year. I had a tough group but was confident on making the final day.

Day 1

420 Yoke Carry
The setup for this was 2 tractor tyres and was a bit unstable. - 1st Place

Rock Pressing
Turned out to be a very close event. I pressed the 90 and the 100 but i couldn't get the 110 to sit right. Came 8th on this but there were 4 of us who pressed the 2 stones and it was very close on times - 8th

400kg Block Deadlift
Pretty standard plates and 18" blocks setup for this. Unfortunately I was up first on this so had to put a high marker down. I did 9 reps which gave me a comfortable event win. - 1st

MAS Wresting
I had already qualified for the 2nd day so took it easy on this to avoid any injury. Not sure where I placed.

Day 2

Bar Bending
Bar started at 16" and 4ft long. This was a speed bending event so slowest 2 got eliminated then the bar got shorter. Did a poor first bend with the 4ft bar as i was off centre but avoided the elimination. I was quickest on the 3.5ft bar so that left myself and Ash in the final with the 3ft bar. Ash just pipped me on this one as I messed around with the final bend. - 2nd

Front Hold
This was a HUGE sword weighing 56lbs. This was never going to be a good event for me and once again it was really close on times - 6th

300kg Squat
On the fish tank setup from a couple of years ago. Once again I was out first on this so had to put a marker down. Did 11 reps which was good for the win - 1st

Car Deadlift Hold
Just had to pick it up and that would be enough to go through to the final day. Had a bit of fun while going head to head with eddy but didn't risk doing any longer than needed.

Day 3

Body felt absolutely fooked when i woke up on Sunday morning. The squat had taken it out of my back and hamstrings but there's nothing like a 385 frame carry to brush the cobwebs away Grin

385kg Railway Frame Walk
I was in the 2nd group for this and only Eddy and Luke S finished the 20m course in group 1. The pick up took some time then it was ok. Managed to get over the line before my grip gave out. I was sure I had won this but the stopwatches showed my time as 11.71sec and Eddy's ad 11.70sec so I came 2nd by the closest of margins.

167kg Apollons Axle
This was a bit of a shock event really. Everyone failed to lift it which was a major surprise. In spite of this I was really confident on this as 145kg absolutely flew up in the warm up (so much so i had to recheck the weight). I missed the clean on the first attempt but got it on the 2nd and split jerked it over head. There was some controversy as to if i dropped the bar from the top of the lift instead of controlling it down but I was given the lift. I could have done 1 or 2 more reps if i needed to but with just eddy left to go, I knew he would beat any number i did so left it at one. - 2nd

Husafell Stone for distance
185kg Stone that i failed to pick up last year. Nailed the pick up this year and managed 3rd place behind Eddy and Luke S. Probably the event i was most happy with after last years problems on it. - 3rd

Truck Push
12tonne truck for 15m. 19sec. Pretty standard really, got a good start and once again came 3rd behind Eddy and Luke S.

Barrel Loading
Barrels from 100kg to 165kg. at this point I was guaranteed a podium finish and was 5points behind eddy and 5points infront of Luke S. Eddy went off like a rocket chucking up the barrels like they were nothing so I knew i couldn't catch him. I only had to do 4 barrels to secure 2nd so i did that took my time. Not sure where i finished.


Eddy was untouchable all day. He really is the complete package now, (although if bar bending was in the final instead of the barrels i could have beat him Wink)

My goal going into this comp was to get on the podium so I am over the moon with 2nd. 12 months of focused training and trying to get bit better on everything makes a huge difference.

Gonna have a break from the big barbell lifts for 4 weeks then i'll start back with a 16 week training phase ready to peak for the new year.

» UK's Strongest Man (Go to post)22-08-2014 @ 18:16 
About 4 guys all on 2 stones. Came down to split times and I was slowest (just). Never liked stone press hahaha
» Eleiko bars (Go to post)16-08-2014 @ 17:30 
Yep another vote for the training bar. No real difference between it and the competition bar apart from slightly different knurling.

Think of it as an investment. Eleiko bars hold their value better than any other brand.
