Felt something in my lower back go in the pickup on the last set. It's from an injury from a couple years back, should have seen it coming really, it's been fairly sore the last few days.

Chin-ups
BW x 6
+12.5kg 3 sets of 8 PB?

2 handed plate pinch

Hit some good numbers today but lower back is a little worrying. I don't feel it's a major injury, just a slight tweak. Need to be a bit smarter and rest up some more, probably should leave deadlifts out this week as well.

Also here's a funny little story I've been loaling about the past few days

There's this bloke who comes in regularly at work who I talk to a bit about lifting. He claims he can curl 70kg Dumbbells for 200 reps each arm (although later said by 200 reps he meant 10 sets of 20), and that last year he did 4 hour of lifting followed by a 30km bike ride every single day, 365 days in a row. He also said he had got so big (despite never taking roids) that he looked stupid and could barely walk properly or put his arms to his sides (bearing in mind this dude is 5' 7" and about 80-85kg fairly chubby). Anyway he asked how my comp went last weekend and I told him I came 7th and showed him a video of the deadlift & dumbbell press. He laughed at the DB vid and said "you only did one rep?", I asked him how many he could do and he said "well I can can do 200 curls with 70kg and pressing is easier than curling, so I'd be able to do 300 reps" absolutely dead serious. I had to leave at this point because I was almost bursting out laughing in his face. Anyway apparently after I'd gone he started telling people that I was a skinny bas***d and he doesn't think I even lift weights, and that I'd photoshopped / edited the video or stuck my head on someone else's body Grin

You can only laugh Grin

Back was still a little sore today from sunday, so didnt want to do anything too heavy. Plan was to work up to 155 on squats for 3 sets of 5, but it just felt too easy so did sets of 8 instead. Still left loads in the tank, really wanted to add some more weight today but i think i took the more sensible option.

Best technique I've ever seen, great watch

mark_f1 said:You did great mate. You was the lightest guy in the class by probably 10kg too.


Cheers mate, yeah think if I can pack on 10-15kg of quality weight I could do some big things in U105 Happy

Competed in rotherhams strongest man U105 yesterday, first time doing a comp that wasn't novice so all I wanted was to complete every event, anything else was a bonus.

Yoke walk - 280kg 30m
Heaviest I've ever gone in training was 265kg, and haven't been able to train this event in several weeks, so was a little nervous going in. Wasn't the speediest of runs but managed it with no drops in 25 seconds, winner did it in 22. 6th place

20" Deadlift - 300kg reps
No idea how this was going to go, didn't know if I'd even manage a single rep! Ended up getting in the zone and pulled it for 13 reps for 4th place. Over the moon with this

Monster dumbbell press - 60kg for reps in 60 seconds
This dumbbell was a lot bigger than what I was used to, and very awkward to control. Ended up failing the first three attempts, but finally managed to press it on the 4th. Think if I'd have practiced with this specific DB a bit more I would have been good for 3-5 reps, still happy to get 1 though. Didn't get good points, managed to beat a few guys who no repped it tho

Forward hold - 22kg
Got 18 seconds on this, no one managed it for much longer it was a pretty heavy forward hold. Think it got me 8th place

Stone over yoke - 120kg
Hadn't trained stones in a while, mostly because dealing with tacky is such a ball ache! Best I've done is 105kg x 3, came out and surprised myself with 120kg x 8 reps for joint 3rd!

Really, really happy with today. New personal bests on every event and took 7th overall, a really nice mid table finish. Onwards to bigger and better things!

Pritchett is one of the most underrated deadlifters atm, think he'll pull over 1000lbs at europes

Then today had a really good pressing session

Push press
Did a few strict warmup sets with the bar & 40kg
60kg x 4
70kg x 3
80kg x 3
90kg x 2
100kg 3 sets of 3
First two sets were comfy, last one was tough but still really pleased

Incline pause bench
60kg x 7
80kg x 5
90kg x 5
100kg x 5
100kg x 5
100kg x 4 - head wasn't in this set
100kg x 5 - better

Floor press
60kg x 12
80kg x 10
95kg 2 sets of 8

Circus DB press
35kg x 2 each arm
45kg x 1 each arm
50kg x 1 each arm
55kg x 1 each arm - new PB left handed!
60kg x 2 fails with right
60kg x 1 with right - yes!!
Really happy, the first two fails with 60kg were because I messed the clean up. Didn't get it set right on my shoulder so didn't even attempt the press. Was easy in the end, actually around 61.6kg as well if the collars are included Happy

Did a few sets of forward hold with 15kg & 20kg, felt better than expected given I never train this movement

Bent over rear delt flies
20kg's 3 sets of 8

Probably got a little carried away today, didn't plan on doing this much

Wanted to train some yoke today but rain stopped me :/ looks like I'll have to go into this comp without having trained yoke for 3-4 weeks, not ideal tbh
