X2

x3

Massively depends on comp and events, my max log and deadlift are terrible, yet I'm better at other events. I'd say find a competition where you'll need to push your self but isn't beyond you. The experience counts for a lot. Being able to control your nerves (or at east knowing what to expect), and also understanding what food/drinks etc. work for you.

They all make a massive difference. I've beat lads with far better max deads/logs all because their head went on the day.

Doncasters strongest man 2016

The last 'novice' comp im going to do
To be fair there was quite a few open competitors and lads that had won/podiumed. That and i genuinely thought I'd strughle to come top 7 against these guys.
Turned up late for brief so had to go first on everything apart from last event. Oh well.

Deadlift 200kg reps 1min -9
Was aiming for 10, but wasnt pushing myself.

85kg monster log for reps 1min -5
My log game has been suffering lately, and i hate this log. Achieved my tsrget

Currently placed 10th out of 16 at this point.

235 yoke- 135 duckwalk -90 barrel all 20m.
I cant remember my time, about 39secs i think. First 2 felt easy but needed a breather before barrell as i gas out easy on this. I came 3rd on this event.

110kg farmers hold - 1min 4secs
Being first up i just had to give it everything, felt my calouses starting to rip so rather than ruin my hands for stones i played to the long game
Was long enough in the end i won this event.

Currentlt 5th in the standings 2 points of 2nd place.

Stones 75-90-110-125-135
Took it fairly steady, i thought but ended up with the 3rd fastest time of 22 seconds. Could have gone faster but back was pumped from deads.

This placed me joint 3rd (not getting a trophy due to the other guy beating me on stones). And only 4points of 1st

Comp ran very smoothly and please to say no come out with any injuries i think. Beat a couple of opens competitors and a few guys weighing 50kg more than me. So was happy.
