Hindsight is always 20/20 but being retrospective I realize a few faults I had that could have helped me perform better.
Darryn Wright of Scotland broke the 90kg Strongman deadlift record at the SFN Expo in Glasgow which took place August 27th & 28th. Darryn also won the log press in his class with a lift of 140kg

Principle 1: Never train more than 2 days in a row
Why? Strongman is a neural sport therefore ensuring adequate recovery is of paramount importance. Remember, in Strongman/woman, what you do in the gym has a direct effect on competition performance. It’s not like say a 100m sprinter where they have to also complete technical work alongside strength training.
All in all, I felt great all day. I had to wait 30 min to 1 hour between my last warm-up and when I went (as did everyone else), but I only think this affected my performance on the yoke. After I finished the stone I was incredibly tired, but up until then I was ready to go. This leads me to believe I was as close to 100% for comp day as I possibly could have been.
