More comp prep today. Felt good, needs to be faster though! 200kg on the sled. #strongman #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #notjustaregularfatguy #rawfitness #armoverarm

Turns out pendulum press is a massive pile of balls. More of a core workout than anything else. #strongman #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #notjustaregularfatguy #rawfitness #pendulumpress

My first 200kg deadlift in July 2016, under the tutelage of @markperko89 vs 205 for doubles today. To be fair, I've not really changed any of the basics that Mark taught me. In fact, one of my two DL sessions a week is a word for word copy of the program he started me on, and even two years on, I'm still using the wave loading program he taught me for squats. Aiming for 235/240 in the next fortnight. #deadlift #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #strongman #rawfitness #notjustaregularfatguy

I'M DEADLIFT RICK MOTHERF***ER!!! Yet another PB, that makes 6 in as many weeks, these are like newbie gains! My comp PB of 220kg goes up, with a defecit. Hopefully this will translate in to something good in test week. #notjustaregularfatguy #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #strongman #rawfitness #deadlift #defecit

After deads this morning, working on push press. Mostly used as a log accessory, but I really enjoy it. Working on refining my continental jerk using a mixed grip. Trying to make it my normal method incase I ever have to press an axle. 5x1 @ 90kg, fourth one shown. #pushpress #continentaljerk #notjustaregularfatguy #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #strongman #rawfitness

I appreciate it's "only" an 18" deadlift, but I just pulled a quarter of a metric ton (250kg). Now my arse hurts, and yesterday's work place injury (55mm spanner to the face) is throbbing. On with the reps! #deadlift #18inchdeadlift #blockpulls #notjustaregularfatguy #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #strongman #rawfitness

Just joined the 500lbs club with a 227.5kg (501.5lbs) deadlift. Was supposed to be attempting 225 as I'm still a month away from peak but it was just too tempting. Was a little disappointed to not get to train arm-over-arm on the sleds at @driffieldhealthhub due to a class of two people taking the entire rig area. I can't afford to keep paying for day passes, so will have to find another way to work that in. Hopefully @tomivesonfitness will be able to come up with something at Raw. #deadlift #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #strongman #rawfitness #notjustaregularfatguy

Triples @ 190kg tonight (2nd set of four shown). Really enjoying finally getting to the heavy end of the program. Only four more training weeks until the next test. #deadlift #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #strongman #rawfitness #notjustaregularfatguy

Two deadlift sessions, three sets of over head work (clean and press, log and push press) and some squats and stuff, all squeezed in to three days back to back. Fatigue was really biting me on the arse today, but it'll be good to have a clear weekend before going back to work on Monday. If I keep this up, I'll either get massive.... or be killed to death. #deadlift #logpress #squats #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #strongman #rawfitness #notjustaregularfatguy #myshouldersarecrying

Just attempted the "Fortnightly Challange" @ #rawfitness. 30 reps of 60kg push press in under 5 minutes. Now, in my defence, I had just a full block pull session, so I DNF at 21 reps (by my count following the video). I might try again, fresh, next week. #notjustaregularfatguy #cardiosucks #passthedonuts

Five days off the gym for our anniversary, and 240kg has gone straight up off the blocks. Felt really smooth too, so made an attempt at 250, that didn't even nudge (which I'm totally fine with, 😂). #deadlift #18inchdeadlift #blockpulls #notjustaregularfatguy #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #strongman #rawfitness

BOOOOOOOOOB SWEAT!!! And not one second has been wasted doing cardio! #deadlift #pushpress #strongman #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #notjustaregularfatguy

Playing with @richardfullhorsehansen girthy log, 6x3 @ 80kg.The clean is much easier, but the press is a bitch. I can't breath at all with it on my chest, so have to take a lung full at lock out. Can't wait for him to teach me how to handle a sack, and let me play with his stones. #logpress #strongman #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #notjustaregularfatguy

What have @kierongymrat and @richardfullhorsehansen got me in to now? Timing on this should pretty much run me through to a couple of weeks after the end of this training cycle, so a fairly good time to be peaking. #competition #strongman #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #notjustaregularfatguy

Just, just about got the lock out on 99kg. The clean is much better now thanks to pointers from @richardfullhorsehansen. Doing a full deadlift movement, getting settled, then squatting for the belly hook takes a lot less energy than trying to lift it straight in to my lap. #logpress #strongman #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #notjustaregularfatguy

A failure at 240kg for block pull today. Its not the end of the world. I'm only on week 2 of a 12 block, so I'm nowhere near to peak yet, just thought I'd have a go. Should get that by the end of this program. #deadlift #18inchdeadlift #blockpulls #notjustaregularfatguy #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #strongman

Working log cleans today. The 104kg that I struggled up last week, flew to my chest, then 114kg got there with a double belly flick. Reposing at 94kg (my 1RM for the full movement). #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #notjustaregularfatguy #strongman #cavepower #logpress

But followed it up with a good effort at 94kg. #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #notjustaregularfatguy #strongman #cavepower #logpress

Me: "Take a month off anything heavy after the comp, and just have some fun."
Also Me: "Make an attempt at body weight log on the first day back." #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #notjustaregularfatguy #strongman #cavepower #logpress
