I am still here, and I’m still training hitting new log press and axle c&p PRs and I have a new goal.
So. New Goal. Firstly to drop 6kg so I can enter the under 75kg class, if I want to take the next step up regarding weights I need to be in the lower weight class.
Secondly, the comp. Britain’s Strongest Woman 2014 Saturday, 1 March 2014
-Max axle bar deadlift (30 seconds per attempt)
3 nominated lifts after the starting weight (No straps or suits!). Starting weight is mandatory. Deadlift will be from normal height.
U75kg starting weight – 120kg
-Floor to overhead reps (75 seconds limit)
U75kg Women – 50kg thin log 1 point, 60kg Axel 3 Points
-Rope pull to prowler push (75 seconds limit)
Seated pull for 15 metres straight into a 15 metre push back.
U75kg Women – Prowler + 100kg
-Keg carry and lift (75 seconds limit)
This event is a bit different! This will involve carrying a keg 20 metres and then lifting it overhead, and repeating this without putting the keg down. Maximum reps in the time limit wins, reps will be split timed in case of ties.
U75kg Women – 40kg
-Tyre flips to farmers walk (75 seconds limit)
5 flips of the tyre and then 20 metres of farmers walk.
U75kg Women – 180kg Tyre, Farmers 75kg each hand
-Crucifix hold (No time limit)
U75kg Women – 8kg per hand
Am I peeing my pants a little? Oh yes.
Here is where I am at the moment.
-Max axle bar deadlift -starting weight – 120kg I can get 110kg off the floor about an inch
-Floor to overhead reps50kg thin log 1 point, 60kg Axel 3 Points Can press 50kg fat log, current PR for axel is 52.5kg
-Rope pull to prowler push (75 seconds limit) Prowler + 100kg it’s not fast but I can do this.
-Keg carry and lift (75 seconds limit)U75kg Women – 40kg I can carry but not press.
-Tyre flips to farmers walk (75 seconds limit)180kg Tyre, Farmers 75kg each hand. Yeah, just no.
-Crucifix hold (No time limit) 8kg per hand haven’t actually tried!
There is a lot of work to be done and Christmas is kinda in the way. Just to prove I am still training have a short video of me moving Atlas Stones at the weekend. This one is only 50kg, I managed 60kg a couple of times as well but only for 1 rep at a time.
Hope your training all going well, whether it’s for a goal or just for health, hope it’s fun.
