Haha - I'll go edit the post - in my defence JP only posted that a moment before I did! :D

I did feel pretty buggered last night but I slept like a log and today I actually feel quite fresh! A bit of bother with the shin splint and the odd aching muscle, but I think it is no worse than a normal training session! :lol:

Shit, I am too wiped to even do any of this typing stuff about the comp :) Awesome day, really, really well run/organised and fair reffing, efficiency makes for a good comp, for the competitors and spectators.

Pretty happy with all my events, apart from stones i guess, though my excuse is that they had just been made and were really dusty/slippy.

Plenty of stuff to work on, and was a great learning experience, and good to put the body through such mad shit. It's way, way different to a heavy training session, really draining, but satisfying at the same time.

Respect to Jono - excellent to place top 3. Even in a comp like this, a large percentage of guys are not natural, so to place so highly is awesome. It's good that you didn't have any bad/weak events either. Keep training like a mofo and you will be a force to be reckoned with in the coming years.

Deckerz - feels no pain. Again, respect for fighting through to the end. Loading that 5th stone was the highlight of the comp for me, fucking awesome.

JP - massive improvement recently, and all the dedicated training really paid off. As with Jono, no real weaknesses, so i hope you keep on with the strongman stuff. Digging deep on every event. Hardcore.

Krypto - my bottom of table buddy :) Big up for training so hard for the comp in the last couple of months. Thinking about the events, apart from log all performances were solid. We get an ifsa log, and force you to stay away from bodybuilding and press the bastard (that's the plan at least :D)

Totally fucked. Can't really even think straight, body wanted to sleep but had to come to work. Haven't eaten since about 3pm yesterday, just on fluids. Stomach knackered after puking blood after the chain drag. Going to ease back into food, training, and life, very cautiously :)

hey i havent eaten much either! I got really really nauseous just before arriving to manchester and had to fight not to puke. Whats with all this puking guys :D So many folk puked during the comp...

shit that yoke & chain was hardcore Buzz - you really gave it all, it was awesome to see you dig so deep and not giving up.

Guys when is the next comp :D Me and Jono are going to struggle to find any suitable ones. most novice comps are too light, and the heavier ones for over 105s are in the tune of "deadlift 270kg for reps" :lol:

Hey Jono, respect for giving the whey price to Anthony, he was well happy about that. Though he would have prefered a trophy ;)

Talking of trophies, heres a pic of it with 5 very tired vegans :D

Excellent pic :)

Not sure about the puking stuff, yeah, there were a few casualties though. When I came back in and asked Dr Krypto if i should continue, he asked why, and I said coz i just puked, there was some blood and shit, and he said, "What are you fucking talking about? Of course you have to go on, you've got 6 months to recover." Not sure I trust his medical opinion any more :wink:

Not sure about next comp. Think i'll set my sights on the ones we will organise this year, and hope for scotlands under 105's next, or fife novice if it happens. SDF is the best place to check for comps though, there are tons in south of England that you guys could do, i'd be happy to come spectate :)

Buzz that is funny about Kryptos medical advice :lol: but kudos though, fighting all the way and not letting any excuse to get in the way. Like Big Al says "walking the walk not just talking the talk..."

hey my lovely wife only took videos of my lifts because our battery was fucked and the steam was running out, gutted that we didnt get the other lifts videod. If i find any links to vids at that comp, i'll post them on this thread as well.

Heres my log lift vid:

My stones:

Feel bad that there are only vids of my lifts :(

I'd love to see a vid of Jonathans and Deckerzs stone lifts - not only because of nailing all five, but because I think in the background I made a vertical jump PB with a huge "JYES!" shout when jono nailed the fifth :lol:

I'll get the videos up gradually over the course of tomorrow, and hopefully I can play around with windows movie maker and turn out something semi professional.

Here are me and Alex log pressing:

Serious respect to all you guys, an amazing effort all round. Hopefully my back will eventually heal itself & I'll get a chance to battle for last place myself in the future :)

much respect to all you guys for putting in an outstanding effort. my favorite is after Jonathan got the last stone loaded. there should be a separate video of him "walking" away from the area titled "this is what your body looks like after a strongman event".

Great videos. Hey JP, I liked your stone lifts, the first two stones you didn't even lap em, just from the ground straight to the platform. You would have had that last stone if your arms were a little lower around it once you had it lapped, it was a great effort! Jonathan, great job on those stones, you banged em out.
