Events Saturday: New Blood

THE GENESIS chapter of WA Strongman is attracting new blood. Ashleigh, the LFL girl who fell in love with the sport just four weeks out from what ended up being her first ever Strongman competition (she placed third, making it into the state finals) has returned to training with a vengeance. Joining her is a new bloke, Richard, who has actually been behind the scenes at Genesis Bentley for some time now, but has finally committed to Strongman training. I hope to get him ready for competition next year, if he sticks with it.

During Axle deadlfits we were joined by another fellow, Russell, who expressed in interest in some of the techniques he saw being used and, with any luck, will turn up next weekend for more instruction. As it was I spent a lot of time talking to and instructing my small collection of trainees. My yoke, farmers and log were all well below max effort (though I am happy with the speed of my nearly 300 kilo belt-less yoke walk) and served more as instructional than anything else. Bur once I have people working together, helping each other set up apparatus, and with a basic understanding of what we do each weekend, things will begin to run smoothly. One thing I have missed training solo a lot of the time, is people to assist with loading and unloading plates and equipment. It will be good to have some comrades to assist.
