Nice 500s!

Which DF did you find best?

When is the 2k attempt?

That a great effort Bim!

Really pleased for you. As already mentioned, you thoroughly deserve it.

Well Now there is 'Raw with Wraps"
Back in the day you had "Raw with sleeves"

Yes, but not on the elbows! Heaven forbid!

Nice effort at the comp! I also miss strongman.
» Sam Martin (Go to post)08-06-2021 @ 17:12 
Excellent performance!

Which comp was that?
» Depth check please (Go to post)07-06-2021 @ 08:10 
Solid showing at the comp. Bodes very well. Farmers almost nailed in one go - the grip training must be working.

Your Pb bench 167.5 is that single ply or raw?

It was done close grip with single ply elbow sleeves, so neither really.

That's a great 500m row! Well done Bim.

Tasty 4 mins too - the 2k PB is well and truly on!

That's a lovely 1k row!

I totally understand what Bim is saying to you about doing a routine. I'm going to get back on some form of the Rathbrn when this lovely weather starts to subside, which will hopefully be too soon! I could never imagine telling myself to do 8 x 4 TR, 3 x 10 AT or anything of the sort, but if the routine said that's what it is... that's what it is!

I did it the year before (2005).

Squat - 255kg
Bench press - 165kg
Deadlift - 255kg

BW was 97.4kg.
Single ply.

Sixteen years on and my BW is probably around the same, but my lifts are well down on those... those are depressing thoughts.

KevC86 said:Groups are out and it's bloody tough to pick the finalists.

Other than JF and Nova I'm not sure there's anyone I'd be comfortable betting money on to make it to the final.

Hicks looks great but he'll likely have to beat either Shaw or Aivars in a stone off.

Tom Stoltman should be safe, but with Mitchell in his group a slip could put him in a stone off with one of the few humans capable of really pushing him.

Group 3, f**k knows. Richardson and Oberst potentially in the stone off, unless Luke can beat JF to win the group.

Bishop has a good shot, but it wouldn't take much to see him in a stone off against Hollands or Janashia.

Luke Stoltman is probably looking at a stone off against Faires. I fancy Luke to win that now that I'm thinking about it.

In conclusion, I've no idea who's making the final.

Where can the groups be found?

Nice ‘feeler’ row. Now you just need to do it again, but around 20 seconds faster...
