HUGE Bucketlist tick yesterday, drove to swindon to train with Laurence Shahlaei (2* Britains strongest, and came 4th in 2011 WSM)

90 mins of pure pain, but before my body gives in on me I wanted to use some of the equipment that you never see in normal gyms

Kicked off with a deadlift for warmup
60kg * 5, 100kg * 5, 120 * 5, 140 * 3, 160 - failed, 140 * 2reps * 3 sets

Then moved on to farmers walk - 80kg each hand shuttle runs. 12 metre course there and back. 3 times

Tyre Flips - 300kg tyre, 5 flips * 2 sets .... oh god this hurt

Viking press - frame + 40kg, so probably 60kg in all 5reps * 3 sets

Yoke Walk - 160kg, shuttle runs, 12m there & back. 2 sets

then finally the one I'd been waiting for - Atlas Stone 80kg, couldn't even move it at first... then on the 4th attempt got it onto the platform (must have been 5ft ish)

if that didn't ruin me enough he decided to make me do some sprint intervals to finish me off 15s on, 45 off * 5

Seriously Seriously broken, but had an amazing day, Laurence is a bloody nice bloke and absurdly strong.

Awesome, but your camera-person needs a steadier hand :)

Yes he is... he's only 31 and in a LOOOOOAD better shape than before. EXCEPT for injury

he tore his quad at WSM 2013 and then tore his lat about a month ago at the deadlift competition.

Once he's back in shape I think we're looking at a real podium chance. Can't see anyone beating Zydrunas. Hafthor looks in amazing form. then 3rd spot is up for grabs, Eddie Hall (UK) us a contender, as well as a few americans.

I think the problem is the lack of preparation, apparently they were only told 6 weeks before WSM2014 where and when it was happening and only 1 week before were they told the events.

Oh man I saw him tear his lat yesterday, channel 5 showed the deadlift competition. They had to go and show it letting lose in slow motion, gruesome!
