1 Month till Australia’s Strongest Man

This training week in review, and it’s been fairly disastrous. I’ve found myself falling further behind the eight-ball with injury, work and personal dramas stealing my focus. On the upside, I am pleased to see a couple of PTC crew getting into Strongman training, with the intention of competing this year. I was happy to give advice on the log clean-press amongst other things. I hope to see Rod and Kurt stick with it, and will now have to make sure the farmers picks and yoke, which PTC also have, get a workout in the future.

My press hasn’t improved much at all for the last month, and my pulls suffered doubly from a concoction of pre- and intra-workout powders which made me feel sick to my stomach, and my back was feeling pretty rotten to begin with, so I scrapped it after repping 220.

I attempted the yoke walk with knee wraps, and that didn’t go as planned; the wraps seemed to compress things in all the wrong places, when I attempted to walk it just made things worse. Either I need to wrap better, or not bother with the wraps at all and just hope, with enough time to heal and Dan’s hand-me-down knee sleeves, everything will hold up on the day.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface.
