Scotlands Strongest Team

I posted this in the comp section, but thought it best to put it in here aswell incase people dont see it in there.

Scotlands Strongest Team will be taking place in Dumbarton on the 1st June. There will be eight two man teams competing with a high majority of the athletes being in the top twenty in Scotland, so you can be assured a great show.

Sponsors for the event are ExtremeNutrition, SIN NightClub and Dumbarton Amatuer Weightlifting Club.

Events on the day will be;

1/ Log Press Medley
90, 100, 115, 130 and 145k logs to be pressed out to fully extension overhead.

2/ Deadlift Medley
110k farmers per hand, 230k axel, 250k barbell, van [300k in the hands] and 190k farmers per hand all to be lifted to full lock out.

3/ 4 Part Medley
320k yoke walk 15m, 120k keg carried 15m, 375k tyre 6flips and 200k duck walk 15m.

4/ Farmers Walk

5/ Atlas Stones
90, 100, 110, 130, 150 and 180k stones to be loaded onto platforms of decreasing height.

    Had a pretty good day, some things I wanted to do better at, but its done and dusted now so heres the write up!

    Log Press Medley-

    Stevie went in and done the 90 and 100k logs, I got the 115k and then attempted the 130k twice, but missed it both times. knew it was unlikely Id get the 130k, but hopefully after a summer of intense pressing training then I might get it after summer.


    Deadlift Medley-

    Stevie started at the 110k farmers, pulled them easily and then tagged me. I ran out and got the 230k axel [grip almost went though as I didnt take anytime to set it up] then pulled the 250k barbell easily. Stevie did the van and I came back in to do the 200k per hand farmers, apparently this last lift looked very easy.


    Medley-

    Did the 310k yoke easily enough, Stevie did the 120k keg fine then I went in and did the 370k tyre ok, was starting to get puffed out after four flips, but kept going and finished the six flips. Running back the 15m to tag Stevie was the hardest part as I thought I was going to fall over since my legs were like jelly.


    Farmers-

    By this time the rain had started and the handles were getting quite wet. 110k for 30m was pretty fast by Stevie, then I came in and did the 150k's. Got to the cone at 15m and madde the turn, dropped them and tagged Stevie, he took them around 5m and then I finished them off.


    Stones-

    Plan was for Stevie to do the 90, 100, 110 and 130k stones then for me to come in and do the 150 and 170s. Stevie got all his and then I went in, made an attempt on the stone, but the rain had made it very slippery, this wasn't helped by the masking tape covering the stone. Neither of us managed to get the stone, so had to settle for four of six.


    Overall a good day, but just made me realise at the difference in standard at open level. Need to knock my pan in all summer and try to improve as much as I can and then do the same once Im back at Uni to prepare for comps next spring.

    Yeah the weather was pants. I came late and just saw the stones. Couldn't find the place. The stones looked pretty slippy towards the end. The guy Andy i think didn't half throw the stones over. Well done though bsb.
