Thread: I am Wiltshire's strongest person (charity)

  1. #1

    Default I am Wiltshire's strongest person (charity)

    Entered this competition yesterday:-

    My mate was helping to organise it for charity, so I said I'd have a go. It was all a bit last minute, cos noone knew it was on until this week. I had an advantage, because I've been hammering strength endurance for my fight

    Pretty sore now though, think I'll go sit in the hot tub for an hour. Won a night in the Hilton hotel and about 500 worth of Met-Rx supplements, so pretty pleased with that I'll cut out the newspaper clipping and stick in the gym

    Well done... was it the normal strongman type events? Atlas stones, tyre flipping etc?

    No, women were eligible to enter but none did. I said that would be a bit silly, but was told that they wouldn't have been against the men

    No, it wasn't Atlas stones or truck pulling or Fiscal fingers etc. That would have been cool but it was just some weight lifting due to how quickly it had to be organised. Everyone was weighed and then you had 2 minutes on each lift - squat, bench, deadlift and dips with your own bodyweight to get as many reps as you could

    I haven't done squat or bench for about 3 years and have never done dips at all, but I have been hammering strength endurance for the fight. I was the second lightest guy, which was an advantage. A few powerlifters, bodybuilders and gym instructors there but as I said, noone really had time to prepare for it, so I was in an ideal position, weighing 65.8kg () and peaking for a fight
