Maybe you could start with the arm over arm as your first lift and, as you get stronger, work it to later on in the session?

All truth goes through 3 stages - 1st it's ridiculed. Then it's violently opposed. Finally it's accepted as self-evident.

crash - actually the weight in the comp is unknown, so thats why i keep changing it all the time (and also what tyre and how its set up makes a huge difference). So if its too heavy for me to pull all the way, its good training. If its light and it becomes a speed event, its all good. Same with the ones in the middle (which seem to suit me the best in comparison to the other guys with my times).

Strongman is a bit like that sometimes :D Kind of guesswork what the events will be like, eventhough some basic techniques remain.

Also what makes the arm over arm hard in this comp is that you have to start it sitting down. Usually you get big pulls by putting your bodyweight into it.

Gauze - firstly, wheres your training mate!!! yeah did the db pressing during the rehab, now the fucker just has to catch up with the barbell/axle/log lifts :D

At least this way you'll be less likely to tear something? :)

Congrats on the PB, man! :) Not that much time passed since your injury and you're already repping PB's - as non-disco as it gets.

Took you long enough you slack bastard!

Wasn't it at Kathryn and my wedding that we all decided that 250kg was an easy pull?! :P That's three years ago this month!

In all seriousness, great work - an easy pull 8)
