2 days out!

goals:

max log - been really bad lately, my max is 120, but havent nailed it in ages. Minimum opener is 110, then 5kg increments so will go 110, 115... and hope to nail 120 too!

350kg yoke for 20m - so heavy, hoping to finish the course without drops.

car deadlift - this is heavy, most likely 0 point event for me, all my pulling has been easy lately even with pbs, so there is an outside chance...

medley, 170kg cross carry, 260 frame, 115 keg all for 20 m - this is just unbelievably heavy and hard, one at the time... if i can get the keg moving finishing the first two i would be very happy!

230 axle squat for reps - my highest hope event, but will approach it calmly, 5 reps would be awesome. I have done that in training but to reproduce that as 5th event of the day would be great.

64kg dumbell for reps - biggest goal of the comp is to nail a rep here! And then another one... and another one...

stones - will be just so happy when this stage comes i dont care :)

due to injuries and drop outs there are 14 athletes competing by last count. 11th place would be a good target for me.

LETS GO!

Good luck man - you should do well in the Max Leg Extension and might pull a surprise out of the bag for the Innie and Outie Thigh Machines medley.

Yeah! :twisted: If you'd finish in 11th place, you'd be number one outside the top ten! :D :mrgreen:
