    Today was the first time ive ever focused on the RT.. I deadlifted with Straps first then went straight to the RT due to limited time in the gym today.

    Was very happy. Hit 232 with both hands then 242 with my right pretty easily.. got 252 off the ground but could not quite hold onto it. I suppose 250+ is right around the corner.

    Ive decided that after my Strongman Competiton on Feb 19th im actually going to make Grip my focus for a while and all of my other lifts will be my accessory. My body is feeling rather beaten up and id like to make a run at this grip stuff for a while. So I guess Grip and Throwing will be my main focuses.

    232 Both Hands

    Righ now im actually doing Highlander Games which is a blend of Strongman and Highland Games.

    Im gettin pretty good at the LW For Distance and im decent at the Weight for Height.

    NAHA is the name of the Organization. North American Highlander Association.

    A guy came to our gym yesterday and left all his equipment and he has literally EVERYTHING for Highland games so ill now have everything to practice with. Should be fun. Its a nice change of pace.

    I think in my comp where I had the viking press, it was at 200, and I got 15 reps with one not counting because I didn't hold the lockout.

    I think someone told me to push press 185 on a barbell and I got 14 reps, right before the comp. So I would imagine ~195lb push press to be a good start to gauge how many reps you can get.
