Stupid mistake but im not sure it mattered, 290 did not come up an inch.
The farmers were very low. Half of the competitors did not manage to pick them and I did not either. Gave it a good try and got them halfway up but did not manage to lock the suckers out. 154kg each hand.
Tomorrow I will start training again and try to get in more work each week to build some real brute strength!
Great work Swede, even though you missed qualifying...and fantastic mind-set, starting afresh to go after it again from tomorrow onwards
