Had a couple of bad session earlier this week, think the last few weeks of late nights has caught up on me.

Yoke worked up to a terribly slow 300, felt like it may as well have been 500. Felt rubbish in the build up to.

Pulled a 9t truck as a pair as a warm up 35m
Pulled a 9t truck solo with rope 30m
Pulled a 18t truck solo with rope 30m

180 7x3 felt ok.
220 3 fails... no idea what happened, was going to try 270 for the official strongman, but not bothering now, (min dead looks to be 300 anyway).

light clean and jerks
Empty bar rack hold to stretch wrists.
Hanging leg raises.

Safety Bar Squats at Shaun's

If your aim for the session was 300 then 280 is too heavy as a final warm up imo.

What would you suggest Luke? 270 instead?

Sorry for hijacking your journal Paul.

What's the Target for this one Paul, and what build up lifts you're planning if you don't mind me asking?

Just because I pulled easy 260, and 280, in warm up recently and then missed 300.

KevC86 said:12/5 - Englands strongest man

A mistake ridden performance which resulted in me finishing 7th in a comp where i should have been on the podium.

Ouch. Brightside is I'm injury free and the season isn't over yet, i just need to decide what that means for me.

I watched the live stream (later in the day) and i thought you did great. Didnt see the sandbag toss, is that what cost you points?

'Competed' in a highland game show yesterday, I had no idea of the events until I got there so was interesting. Turned out the events list couldn't have been much worse for me, with 3 throwing, and 1 pressing event for someone that struggles to throw a tennis ball. Was a great line up tho, some very decent opens, including uk strongest master, and the current british strongest u90 too.

Event 1 -5th
Heavy rock throw, got luckly on my first throw and managed just over 7m (way more than I managed when practicing when warming up), didn't managed to improved on it.

Event 2 -6th
Caber toss for distance. Wow I struggled to balance it when picking it up, my throw wasn't too bad.

Keg toss - near bottom
Managed all 7, but was slow, and missed the bar twice.

Event 4
Block press - failed this, realised afterwards it wasn't high enough on my chest. Only 4 people managed it.

Max distance farmers about 6th
Gutted about this as I had it in me to win this tbh. the farmers were really long wooden poles that weren't balance, weight was nothing but the front kept digging into the grass and opened my grip up.

Max distance huselfelt. - 2nd
My stomach was pretty churned up from the farmers, so this didn't feel good at all. I went early and put in a distance of 114m, and to be honest I thought it was enough for the win so put it down with more in the tank... unfortunately Shaun Plews dug deep and took the event win from me with a brilliant run.

I came 6th overall, had a great laugh, it wasn't a serious comp and was nice to try something different. Luckily no aches or pains.
