Brock's Birthday Party

First appointment of the day was at the 17 Wing Strength Club for Squats.

Leg Swings and Stretching.
Squats - 2 sets/12 reps/bar, 2 sets/12 reps/75kg, 2 sets/6 reps/105kg.

Right after a shower the family and I drove out to Haywood Haven for Brock Haywood's 55th Birthday party. Brock and his lovely wife Susan got me involved in Powerlifting back in 2005. Of course at the party there were some strength fun and games.

Farmer's Walk - 39kg/hand for 120m, 59kg/60m, 59kg/60m.
OH Keg Press - 70lbs/12 reps, 70lbs/12 reps.
Sheaf Toss - 4 futile attempts.
Stone Lift - 200lbs round stone.

I am still sore today. The Farmer's Walk really knocked the crap outta me.

I would also like to comment on my son's performance on the day.

Squats - New 5 rep PB 70kg, New 1RM 80kg.

At Haywood Haven.

Farmer's Walk - 39kg for 60m.
Various other amazing feats of strength.

Here are some pictures of the day's activities.
