All 4 events from Saturday . Overhead medley - 65kg log - 60kg axel - 30kg monster DB I fumbled a bit with the DB which I hit no problem in training (elbow kept bloody dipping) but that's the nature of comp day. 2nd in this event . Rising bar max deadlift Equal PB of 180kg. Went for 185kg for a yolo and it came no further then the middle of my shins ๐Ÿ˜‚ 1st in this event . 180kg yoke for 15m Hit this in about 9 seconds which is actually a PB, so I was happy with that. 3rd in this event . Max height stone 70kg Max height I hit was about 1.4m or 1.5m. I wasn't far off 1.6m, but being vertically challenged, I need to learn to press with my face ๐Ÿ˜‚ 2nd in this event . Farmers were unfortunately scrapped as the weather was playing tricks on us, but @dwagisto and I ended up having a tie breaker for 1st, so got to do them afterall . Closest competition to date, and I had the most amazing day with all the girls, the sportsmanship of Strongwoman still amazes me โค

After burning myself out last week, I'm back to training. I thought I was invincible and hit too many training days in a row to catch up on my program . Not all of us can be Superman like @josh_strongman_ . 1st set of triples at 152.5kg . I'll admit I'm looking forward to a good week off after QLD's Strongest, but for now, the work needs to be done .

What a day at QLD Strongest! . Heaviest comp to date and I still walked away with second place, with an absolute battle between myself and @dwagisto ending with a tie breaker for first place. This woman is my competition and also one of my biggest support people, I'm always honoured to compete alongside you โค . The goal for today was qualify for Arnolds (which I really hope I did) and place top 3 . I had an absolute amazing weekend with my @panthers_powerlifting crew and could never do a comp without @josh_strongman_ by my side. This guy always has my back and I'm so incredibly proud of him . Thank you for all the amazing support from all the @cocos_gym crew who came down to cheer us on, all the support from everyone back at home, @arielle_cocosgym for her awesome photography and @coco_strongman for his support, training and programming to get me to this level so far . Thank you @lana_lady_lifter, Sunshine Coast Strongman and @muscle_hut_sc for putting on such an awesome comp!
