I was once again lucky enough to represent Australia in the Arnold’s Australia Strongman Pro Show on the weekend. . . This competition was one of the heaviest I’ve competed in but also a lot of fun with a mixture of tough events and even tougher competitors with an amazing depth of talent. . Overall I am not happy with my performance only hitting one PB on the frame Deadlift, but this experience is what I need to come back stronger and already I am adjusting my training to improve my weaknesses and to bring a better game for future events especially in the hope of securing a Pro spot once again. . . My performance may not have been as impressive as I had hoped for but I couldn’t be prouder of my team and more impressed - @strongwoman_lucia , @philamery , @sarah_strongwoman , @lilisakalia , @buckceps , @redalicious_strongwoman , @callumhaggerty , @rai_rai_stronglady and @rachel_strongwoman . Each of them put on an amazing show of strength and had a great weekend which makes my job as their coach and incredibly rewarding one. . . This weekend wouldn’t have been such a success without the people behind me. Firstly my partner Arielle, organising our team shirts, supporting my team when I couldn’t be there and always pushing me to be a better athlete. . My good friend Chad for coming down to look after me while I competed and also helping my Athletes in their events. . My @cocos_gym members for all of their support leading up to this event and for looking after the gym while we were away. . . And last but not least my incredible team of Sponsors who provide me with the opportunity to be the best Athlete I can be: @thsnutrition , @cerberus_australia , @xploape , @johnnybigg , @thepastryemporium , @a.i.m_performance_therapies and @athletesgel (who I ended up needing after hurting my QL on the Viking Press again 😒). . . This is all for now, but just know I will be eating more, training harder and the next time you see me compete I will be bringing my A game! . . . #cocosgym #cocosanimalpack #strongman #strong #strength #power #gym #arnoldclassic #kingsoftheoverheadpress #strong #fitness #competition #bodybuilding #crossfit #xploape #beast #beastmode #monster #fit

Wanting to save my legs for power stairs so I finished up with a 175kg log press 😂. . . Even @mikhail_shivlyakov was giving me a hard time for not using my legs lol. . @cerberus_australia @xploape . . #kindastrict #cocosgym #cocosanimalpack #strongman #strong #strength #power #gym #logpress #gym #arnoldclassic #overheadpress #bodybuilding #crossfit #beastmode #xploape #fitness #fit #kingsoftheoverheadpress

Throughout this Arnold’s prep I have been battling with technical issues with my Log press. . . Obviously this has been a bit stressful for me as there is a max Log press event at Arnold’s and I have always felt a great deal of pressure to hit big numbers on overheads. . . I am human though and like everyone sometimes my technique can break down leading to bad sessions. . However I am happy to say that I have worked through these technical faults and fixed it in time for the big show. Here is a smooth 170kg, let’s see what my max effort looks like next week when I go berserk 👹💪🏽! . . @cerberus_australia @xploape . . #cocosgym #cocosanimalpack #strongman #strong #strength #training #startingstrongman #gym #goldcoast #power #fitness #focus #bodybuilding #crossfit #weightlifting #shoulders #big #beastmode #xploape #fit #arnoldclassic #strengthtraining #asian #showtime

Because I didn't want to be outdone by @rahndeuis ’s 200kg to 1.2m, I had to hit it over 1.3m . . To be honest I have been working on this for a while since missing it at ASM in October. I was both incredibly happy and relieved to hit it before the Australian Arnold's strongman pro show next weekend. . . @cerberus_australia @xploape . . #cocosgym #cocosanimalpack #strongman #strong #strength #power #gym #fitness #focus #training #strengthtraining #goldcoast #arnoldclassic #atlasstones #health #bodybuilding #crossfit #deadlift #fit #powerlifting #beastmode

Four hundred kilograms or 400kg. Not sure which way is prettier when you write it 🤔. 2 sets of 3 reps followed by a set of 5 as my final set. . . @cerberus_strength_australia @xploape . . #cocosgym #cocosanimalpack #strongman #strong #startingstrongman #strength #power #strengthcoach #bodybuilding #crossfit #biceps #beastmode #xploape #gym #goldcoast #fitness #deadlift #flex #arnoldclassic
