You did great mate. You was the lightest guy in the class by probably 10kg too.

Lead up
Worked away all week and needed to drop 3kg 2days out. Had a great night sleep before a comp for the first time ever

Comp day weighed in 103.5, then had a McDonald's breakfast, it didn't stay in.

1st event - 280yoke
Fancied my chances at this as normally good at this. It was a wide wobbly yoke, and didn't get it set right on initial pick up so had to put it down and rest myself. Then just didn't get through the gears. 28secs, was aiming for sub 20 but wasn't last so not too bad.

300 21" dead lift (actually measured as 19.5 to bottom of bar)
Was allowed to roll it in which is something I've never done before. Managed 9 reps in 60s which I more than happy about.

60keg monster dumbbell
Only ever managed 50kg before so wasnt expecting much. Struggled to balance it and was really close to locking it out, then dropped it on my foot. Writing this in a cold bath and Can't move my big toe. Oops

Front hold 22kg
This was a bit too heavy for me. Could only manage about 5secs in training. Did 16secs

120kg over 50" yoke.
Was aiming for 5 managed 6 so was happy had 20 secs left but was the stone was stuck to my shorts. Also need to stand closer next time.

Placed 8th overall out of 11, top 5 were another level today, then the 2lads ahead of me did great. Happy with how I performed, was a great comp.

I said:Had a think and the targets I'd like this year are:

Deadlift -250
Log - 110
Yoke - 400x20m
Farmers - 150x20m


Well thats the deadlift ticked.

Log - i think im getting nearer, but ive been very hit n miss, due to my trapped nerve.

Yoke - i reckon im on target, just going to keep chipping away.

Farmers - i thought this would be the easiest to achieve as this use to be my best event. I think once my overhead has improved ill put some more work in on this.

Yeah im a lot more confident now, not going to manage a rep on the dumbell tho and going to struggle with the front hold as it just a tad too heavy gor me but going to have fun.

Wasn't bothered even if i come last but going to try aim for a top half finish..... touch wood lol.

After 2 long ass days driving all over the country and working i wasnt expecting anything today. Ended up being a great session.

20" dead
70
120
170x3
210x3
250x3
290x3 rep pb
330x1 pb

Deadlift
210x1
230x1 fast off floor, but slowed at the knees a little.
250x1 pb (put a belt on for this and had it sat a little higher - felt amazing at the bottom of the lift, really pushed against it and flew from the floor and no hitch. Probably could have had 260 but with rotherhams u105 in a weeks time thought id play it safe.)

Pull ups
Light dumbell rows
