The Thursday just gone - his first strongman session in I don't know how long - he walked a 370 kilo yoke and pressed a 135 kilo log. So that's what internationally ranked strongmen do
on their first day 'just getting back into it.'
Later came the coaching; Jeremy has an excellent eye when it comes to spotting weaknesses and advising on technique. He actively assisted Alex to complete movements he thought he couldn't do today. During the day, Alex, Steve and Ryan all appeared a little fatigued, and I was glad that I anticipated this well enough to have programmed today as their last events session - and the last heavy session in general - before April 9th's comp.
Speaking of - if Jeremy decides to compete it will be an awesome demonstration for the rest of the field. Also speaking of, there's a bunch of stuff we need to get sorted before comp day. Namely the equipment shed and the Power stairs.
Yes, that's right. We have Power stairs.
|Power stairs. Some assembly required.|
The shed is also scheduled to be finished same day... it would have been sorted a while back, but we are still waiting (still) for Bunnings to ship us the parts that didn't come in the kit when PTC bought it, over two months ago.
In other news, this week I graduated to 3 kilogram dumbbell curls (!!) and discovered I need a lot more dental work done than I had first thought. During my last checkup (and my first time seeing a dentist this decade), I was told I had a bunch of hairline cracks through my teeth from grinding. I'm gonna have three wisdom teeth removed and some gold caps put over the cracks. Pretty gangster, right? The wisdom teeth removal may also help reduce my sleep apnoea. On a related note, I'm looking at getting my uvula removed as it's actually choking me as I sleep sometimes. How messed up is that?!
