TSC; third time lucky. πŸ’ͺ🏼

For me this ‘third time lucky’ rule really applied to me yesterday. 

Almost a year after I last competed in the srongfirst TSC i found myself face to face with the three strength challenges ahead of me.

  • Deadlift 
  • Flexed arm hang
  • 5 minute kettlebell snatch test

After the last competition I didn’t do as well as I wanted, I more or less completely stopped deadlifting, so the last 6 weeks or so I have been trying to build that strength back up….

Few bitch fits through belieeeeeeve me. 

I ended up changing my deadlift stance to sumo style like two weeks ago πŸ™„

A move that scared me before I tried it to be honest but I have felt a lot more confident and stronger this way. 

I got 3 lifts of 85kg,95kg & 100kg. All three easy enough so I am determained to stay at this lift and improve.

I was absolutely delighted with my flexed arm hang, I got 65 seconds; this was such an improvement on my last one and a personal best for me. 

The last thing is the snatch test which is the worst 5 minutes of life to be fair to everyone like but I can see a massive improvement in myself, mainly being able to breathe more during and after it. I got 132 snatches in 5 minutes which I am happy enough about, I could probably have gotten more but I am pleased with my technique and overall improvement in this move. 

So overall I am buzzing with myself and all the guys & gals who took part alongside myself yesterday. Everyone did amazing! Setting personal goals like this is always a great thing to keep dedicated for and I’ve learnt massively with a positive mindset positive results will follow. The cocktails after IS always a massive upside too…
