Evening/Morning all.

Just been looking at some of my videos on youtube so thought id post some here. Before i applied for the Marines i was training for strongman...... Yes the thing with car flipping and atlas stones..... Have stopped this now as its a completely different type of training than i need to be doing and comes with a high risk on injury which obviously i want 2 avoid!!

anyway... Enjoy!!

'kin hell mate!
What an achievment becoming that strong, that's mad! Looks like your dedicated to your training, so if you can now apply that to RM style fitness, then you should nail it!

cheers lads *text deleted* yer i do eat quite alot of food!! looking forward to my 4 all i can eat meals a day during RT *text deleted*

Regards to running... Its not as easy as it was when i was a couple of stone lighter but i can stil run the distance in the times so thats all that matters.

Strongmans taught me a real determination to not give up. Imagine pulling on a weight or pushing/lifting something that just doesnt seem to move... Muscles burning, head spinning, on the verge of passing out but stil trying to shift that weight because someone else has just done it (a guy usually a few stone heavier than me in most cases!) then it starts moving and you get a whole new energy running through your body...... Ive been trying to transfer that to my Marine training and it seems to be working!

Oh b0llox - I was thinking no worries if i ever got in a fight with you, i'd use my speed and run into the distance - now it looks like that isn't even an option!:weird:

That's pretty awesome mate. I think the most important thing for you is that you know how robust you are now. I've been in and out of injury for 16 weeks now, a major concern for my YO training of course. Your joints and ligaments are obviously conditioned to the stress of a very demanding workout. That must be a huge weight of your mind.

I'm sure with the dedication you've applied to enhancing your strength, you can achieve any level of physicality by applying the same again.

Good luck mate, gald you're on our side.

120kg dead is the most I have managed :S

But I think if you are applying for the Marines, then you certainly will need to lose a lot of weight. Anyone competing at this level wont have the body to weight ratio to be running to the correct standards, or so I believe, Ninja will tell you...
