I dont recall the exact placings of the rest of the lifters, except as Dave pointed out, he finished 6th of 6, I think Dim was 5th with his injured shoulder, I'll put more results up on the Comp thread.

 

A big thanks to all the PTC lifters, they did themselves proud.

 

A really big thanks to the spotters, Sean, Mick, Hamish, Simmo, Simon and Onevia. These guys did a tremendous job, they should have lifted, wouldve required a tenth of the lifting, 50kg plates are DAMN heavy lol

 

Thanks to all that lifted, spotted, cheered, took pics, videos and helped in any way, it was a truly special day, it will be a long list of National Records when I get around to it

Only Nick and Nathan didnt back up from the comp on Monday.

 

We have 13 weeks, so we had no time to waste with PPP.

 

Everyone reset their goals, simply going up 10kg from there best comp lift.

 

With the added reps, this was much tougher than it shouldve been, I think big Simmo failed

Week 1 over and most people are through. Fat Dave missed his bench session and deadlift session this week, I suppose after his 6th place finish he can rest up a bit and let the others catch up.

 

Max did a 300kg rack pull tonight, Sean, Dim, James deadlifted, Nick and Alen benched.

 

Nina and Annie deadlifted as well.

is this from a knee height M?

I'm surprised he can hold the weight..

lol..........grip is a non issue, I dont think we'll find his grip limit with weights he can actually move.

 

We filmed it, so it'll probably be up shortly. His whole body ached after that rep.

 

His grip was piss poor at his first Strongman comp, now its his strength.

 

His deadlift was dismal at his first 2 PTC comps, now he has 2 National Deadlift records, and its his strength.

 

He feels his bench is his weakest lift, today he did bench work for 3 hours, rack presses, CGBP, DB bench press, dips, wide grip benching, speed benching.

 

Can you see a pattern here?

 

Where most like to do most of their work on there strengths, at 16 he knew that he had to work on his weakness.

 

I think his mum beat him at the Farmers Walk at his first Strongman in Jan 2009, she also beat Fat Dave. He still cant clean grip 120kg in the deadlift.

 

He only ever had one good deadlift in him at PTC comps, he was drained. Last Sunday he pulled 200kg, 207.5kg, 212.5kg and 215kg in succession.

 

Everyone should check this out and learn a little about getting strong.

 

BATB3 - Sept 2009

 

Max --- 69kg - SQ 156 - BP 90 -- DL 170 Total - 416kg

Dave - 103kg - SQ 170 - BP 105 - DL 215 Total - 490kg

 

Vic State Titles - May 2010

 

Max -- 74kg - SQ 170 - BP 105 - DL 215 - Total - 490kg

Dave - 98kg - SQ 175 - BP 100 - DL 210 - Total - 485kg

 

Dave has missed 4 sessions this week, Max never misses a session. Who do you think will improve most at the Nats.

 

Dave is actually out of the PTC Powerlifting program and going back to full body workouts till he can get some consistency and effort back. Its a team now, and he's been dropped, he can continue to lift at PTC, but not with the others who bust their ass. Alen stuffed his back at the States, he trained Friday, Dave didnt.

Spiros had his first session back tonight. The boys did some heavy deload squats tonight, Nick went up to 250kg, Max hit 200kg, Dim and Mick hit 160kg, not sure what Sean, Simmo and James hit.

 

Dave trained alone, doing the 20 rep squat program.

 

Brittany is toying with the idea of competing at the Nats, we'll make a decision in a couple of months, she started easy on the PPP tonight, choosing 80/65/130 as her targets. She has deadlifted 140kg previously, but hasnt gone over 120kg for quite a while. She is still a kid, there are no Junior records in her weight class, the open record is 132.5kg in the dead. There is no world junior record either in her weight class.

 

I have a 6'8" 135kg kid coming down tomorrow night, he was referred to me by Peter Upton, he is chasing a college scholarship for gridiron, I'll let you guys know how he goes.

Apparently it is imported from Vietnam and their livestock does not pass Australian standards. The reason they are able to bring it into Aus is because it's classed as canned food. When I read this I stopped eating it.

If u like it then go for it. But personally i think it taste like crap and i'm pretty sure it has less protein in it than tuna.

Yeh it has much less. Most of them are around 12g or so, if you get the one in mayo its 18g...figure that out....

 

I tried 2 cans and went back to tuna.

 

Nothing like tuna in a salad with olive oil n balsamic vinegar.

I know Mayo has protein in it Markos Markopoulos, but an extra 6g worth just from the mayo?? Thats half of the actual chicken itself, better be licking that tin clean if people are going the chicken in a tin route...

It works out cheaper to just buy your own chicken breast fillets and it tastes heaps better.

 

I originally started eating it cause i thought it was cheaper LOL.

Markos,

 

thank you for taking on Rory. By the fact that he and his father came all the way to Sydney to meet me and be assessed for his gridiron potential I think it gives some indication that he is keen enough to apply himself to learning the barbell lifts and getting strong. A complete novice, we shall what he is capable of from now till the end of the year.

 

regards,

 

Peter
