Deadlift 1st Attempt 390kg ??? good lift 2nd Attempt 410kg ??? good lift 3rd Attempt 430kg ??? no lift Total – 1100kg / 2425lbs ?? It’s been a huge year of successful strongman competitions, and it’s a very exciting feeling to know that I was able to achieve this powerlifting total to top it off. Thank you so much to @sarychevkirill for bringing WRPF to Iceland and thank you to @borissheiko for coming to Iceland to deliver presence and your judging expertise to make sure the event was held at such a high standard ???? The last time I competed in a powerlifting competition was almost 8 years ago, but I think I have a taste for it now, so I’m sure you will see me doing this again in 2019, and I’m also sure I’ll be back with an even bigger total ? A special thank you to my coach @australianstrengthcoach who is always there for me with every major competition making all the right decisions with my training and always getting the most out of me on competition day, making sure everything runs smoothly ???? Thank you to @stefansolvi @kelc33 @basebodybabes @bjornthorr @ragnheidurmj @magnusvermag @bryndis86 @hafdislindbjornsdottir @gretar91 @oskarphaf @andrireyr @fannarsmariv @atlithor94 @fermeter @vikingstrength @vikingtrips @liljakj @k.hinriksson everyone who helped me organise and run the show and thank you to all my sponsors @roguefitness @nuunhydration @sbdapparel @swiftwicksocks @legionath @sodastream ???? . I can’t wait to do it all again ?? #thorspowerliftingchallenge @iceland_open
