I was due to have completed in an open novice show last month. But - you know. Things got crazy.
I have managed to find a local Strongman Show that is still going ahead. Its at the end of November. I have attached the events and weights below. I’m committing to being under 105kg. I’m currently 109kg.
Does anyone have any insights in the what I can be adding / concentrating on? I’m engaging with a coach tomorrow. But I like to have my own research to fall back on as well.
My current training is all bar bell. But again now lock down is lifted I will be back in a Strongman gym (where my coach works) with all of the equipment I need - expect Conan Wheel.
My “plan” if I were not coached would be drop some body fat but stay strong. Which is where I struggle hence the coach. And then work on my grip. 4-5 months with no deadlifts - I think my grip is going to be crap. Aside from that - the only events I think I might 0 on are the CDB - 80kg if loads and maybe the heaviest stone.
