Nick Pratt - Sydney’s strongest man 2009

On the 28th of June, I competed In Sydney’s strongest man competition.
This competition had 5 events.
- 285kg super yoke 25m
- 100kg log press for reps
- 250kg axel Dead lift for reps
- 135kg each hand farmers walk 25m
- 140kg atlas stone over 1.3m for reps
This show used a lot of cardio fitness and speed on top of overall strength and power.
On the 1st event the super yoke nerves were driving me wild once I fond out that we would be walking up an incline with the yoke and farmers. But once my turn came I had a clean run with only 1 drop clocking a time of 15.08secs winning this event over all. With my confidence going up I had two of my weakest events coming up the log clean and press and the axel dead lift. In the log I only managed to clean and press it 5 times which dropped me down the rankings and on the dead lift also got 5 reps taking me back to 8th place. At this stage I felt like death but next up was one of my favourite events the farmers walk with 135kg each hand I got a time of 13.02secs and won this event taking me up to 4th place. Stone for reps was next with the rain coming we had to rush through the middle and light weights in 75secs I only managed to get 4 reps witch kept me my 4th place and qualifies me for nationals so from now till the 4th and 5th of December it’s the road to Australia’s strongest man!!!

  2. Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if
    you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you stop it, any
    plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it's driving me mad so any assistance is very much appreciated.

  3. Heya! I know this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does running a well-established website like yours take a large
    amount of work? I'm brand new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal every day. I'd like to start a blog so
    I can easily share my own experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips
    for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

  4. Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
    Any tips?
