Empire Sports Club's Strongest Man

I will be entering the Empire Sports Club's strongest man competition this weekend (it a powerlifting format), I've been off the gear since September so I'm not at my best, but I'll give it a good go.

Its going to be tough going with some quality Olympic lifters entering - one can squat 315kgs at 95kgs bodyweight - strong bastard.

I'll let you know how I get on.

I haven't been posting much recently due to my new job not allowing me the time to.

Health and Strength,

T.

    At the moment I'm doing 280kgs in the squat and deadlift and around 180kgs in the bench - I'm hoping to get a little more on the day with the adrenalin and all that.

    I trained there a few times with Dave Guest, Tommy Yule and Delroy Macqueen. All strong boys, it is a bloody good gym.

    Aye they are all strong boys. Watched delroy deadlift 290kg overhand grip for 3 reps recently, I feel sorry for the boy as after he won the commonwealth he lost his lottery grant and his job at the gym. Dave Guest lactates from all the gear he is on but has a cracking physique, he and Karl Grant both look like veiny penises. Tommy was probably the best lifter technically. Delroy is just f**kin strong.

    They are all a good bunch, been on a few benders with the lot of them and it can get out of hand on occassion. If you are doing a strongest man comp there you'll have some competition!

    I didn't compete!!

    Quick update - I got pissed up at my office party on the Friday night. Fell off a table and have hurt my kneee - nothing serious but didn't want to try squatting on it. What an eejit!!

    It is the best gym I've trained at for a good while - very high standards of strength from the lifters there. I'll try and find out what the winning lifts were.

    Richy - I'm from Swansea originally but work in Bristol now.

    No more heavy lifting for me now until the bodybuilding season is over.
