  1. Finally back to training after even more inconsistency. My shoulder is feeling good and as long as i keep up with my shoulder rehab stuff it shouldn't cause to many issues. For the time being i will be working on trying to regain my strength and then if im strong enough i plan to return to competition next year.
  2. Hi Guys, Just a heads up. I am currently running a study on the Tapering Practices of Strongman Competitors. This research follows on from my other research on the sport (strongman training practices, injury epidemiology etc - my profile is on ResearchGate). I am looking to recruit competitive strongman athletes for this study so if you feel you meet this criteria it would be great to get your feedback on your tapering practices. This research will serve as a source of collective ideas and help inform practice regarding tapering for competition. If you are interested please email me: and I will send you the survey link. Regards Paul
  3. To give a bit of a history of me. GPC European champion 2015 Open 125s. British record holder in the deadlift. Former squat British record holder. I've been diagnosed with sleep Apnea which has caused some issues with sleep deprivation which came to a head lately and I was blue lighted due to an anxiety attack where my throat closed up. Since diagnosis I've been able to deal mentally with the situation and will be moving forward from this point. Until I get my CPAP machine for sleeping I'm basically operating on little sleep and an oxygen deficit. It's fine now I am aware of this as I can plan around it to get sorted out. Due to some stresses my appetite was hit and I lost a couple of stone..but in fairness it's there to lose. Never been hugely fat but definate carried some. So my rebuild plan is simple. Drop more fat and focus on bodybuilding movements to target some weak areas and to allow some injuries to heal. After this point I will build my lifts back up again (clean) and once the oxygen issue is sorted get myself as fit as possible. I was up at around 135kg but with a decent amount of fat. This time I'm aiming for filling out the 125kg class with a much leaner and fitter physique and then go from there. I keep a video log as by day I'm a strength and conditiong coach with multiple World, European and British champions under my belt. Now it's time to turn the knowledge to me. Below is a link to my channel..please do subscribe as there will be educational content on there as well as my rants and training tips for power. I'll post below the first few vids of my new training style so you can if you can be arsed follow the training cycle.
  4. Ey up all! Wanted to do a bit of atlas stone training in me garage gym and was wondering if Alan Thralls method of using bar ends n bumper plates and getting a trestle table would be sufficient enough? Just looking to see if anyone else has done this. Cheers
  5. I will try to not overcomplicate things as I have a tendency to do and just keep training and postings as simple as possible. Training for powerlifting and strongman with a current emphasis on hypertrophy. Increasing volume at the moment and calories consumed to help with weight gain. Best lifts in competition in 60kg class: 157.5kg squat - all time 60kg UK raw squat record of any federation. 92.5kg bench 212.5kg deadlift. - Unofficial GPC World record. 462.5kg total. - Unofficial GPC World record. I have done two strongman competition's and came last or almost in last position. I appreciated I had a massive bodyweight disadvantage but did it for fun and experience. I was glad to complete most of the events though and becoming last is great as it provides motivation to improve. When I get upwards of 70kg then I will see about competing in strongman again and will powerlift in the meantime. I stopped caring about relative strength and just going for absolute strength. Currently approximately 62kg, 5'4" height. Including the last week's training below for a reference point.
