    Default Australia Day 2010

    I have a thread on another forum, and instead of directing you all there, I will post on here as well. A few of you have expressed interest in competing, so I'll post details in here.

    With the unprecedented success of BATB3, I thought I would begin organizing the next event much sooner. I am hoping to have all our sponsors return and I'm planning on generating even more interest.

    There will be more equipment at PTC shortly, including a power rack, DB and KB racks, more bars, and fingers crossed, an extension with a lifting platform.

    I will begin making Strongman apparatus, I have a few ideas already.

    I'm guessing I wont be able to house all the competitors, but I think I may be able to organize a 10 person camper to park on the easement beside my property.

    I will also get the details of the Accomodation available 1-2 kms from my house.

    With Australia day landing on a Tuesday next year, most of you will need to organize a day off on the Monday, just in case your employer wants you to work. Lifting will be on Saturday and Sunday, as per usual.

    Two comps, 5 lift on Saturday and Strongman on Sunday

    Okay, looks like I'll have a Log, a Yoke, some platforms for Stone loading at AD10. The Strongman section will be different to other years.

    Running down the road with double your bodyweight on the Yoke should be fun.

    Clean & pressing bodyweight on the Log will be interesting.

    The NEW Farmers Walk implements are being made....HEAVY.

    As far as the 5 Lift Comp goes, it will be in 2 sessions, just to make warm ups easier. Too hard with that many lifters.

    I'm still undecided whether to split it up in bodyweights or strength.

    Shorty squats 170kg @ 70kg, Bluey squats 145kg @ 112kg.

    I'll have to work out which will be the most efficient way on the day, possibly bodyweights, but thats not set in stone

    I am interested in this Markos, I even have the go ahead from my Fiancee. I will probably stay in Melbourne the night before and make the drive out to Frankston in the morning.

    You say the 5 lift comp will be held in 2 sessions? They will still be on the same day right?

    Okay, Nina and I have sat down and worked it all out.

    I want to get numbers in as soon as possible. Once I have the numbers sponsors jump on board quick. This was the case at BATB3, only I didnt have final numbers till a few days before. Most like to wait till the last week. This is extemely frustrating, around 6-8 lifters didnt get a shirt this year. I dont see the point in waiting if you know youre coming.

    Now obviously the more lifters the more sponsors. They want exposure for their dollars. I post pics up of the events over 4 websites, and videos on Youtube. there are nearly 14,000 visitors to the PTC website. At Bash, most got 3 prizes. I'd like this to be the norm. For that to happen, I need paid up competitors as early as possible. In the end Horleys got in late, so while I had great banners up, they missed out getting their logo on the shirt.

    I feel I can get many more sponsors with 50 paid up competitors. The quicker I have them, the quicker I can approach them. I'm not going to approach them with an approximate number and end up with egg on my face.

    I am having equipment built that will be used almost exclusively at the comp, Strongman gear doesnt get used much in normal day activities at PTC, this stuff aint cheap, but I think it will make for a better comp.

    The entry fee for this 2 day event is $60, and includes food, drink and a T Shirt for both days. There will also be trophies for each day as well as prizes. How many depends on how soon I can approach sponsors.

    I am also offering the oppurtunity of ordering a Hoodie with the comp logo on it. These will be pre orders only, paid for upfront. I wont be ordering them after the comp. These will still be the regular price of $40 each.

    Entry fee can be paid into

    I have been thinking about some of the events for the Strongman. As long as I have the equipment in time, here are a few I'm considering at the moment.

    Bench press bodyweight for reps
    Squat 1.5 x bodyweight for reps
    Clean & press log with bodyweight for reps
    Double bodyweight Yolk walk, distance undecided
    Farmers Walk
    UDL 64kg x 1 minute
    Atlas stones
    Some sort of medley
    Keg press
    Car push
    Sled drag
    Some kind of patial deadlift, maybe a car ( I'm not joking)

    Some are ones we have used in the past, some are new.

    More on this later

    Sound bloody awesome! Some of it is geared for the lighter guys.

    People are going to feel flogged after a day of lifting and then a day of that stuff!! You are a sadist Markos!

    Last comp at Easter

    Nick 102.3kg won 5 events
    Max 69.8kg won 3 events
    Ghosty 63.3kg won 2 events
    Chris 100.8kg won 1 event
    Alen 82.3kg won 1 event
    Simon 81.8kg won 1 event

    Some lifters tied in some events, but as you can see, the events were equally split between weight classes. The reason nobody weighing between 90kg and 100kg didnt win an event was, I didnt have any competitors in that weight class.

    2 x U/70kg
    2 X U/90kg
    2 x U/110kg

    1. Nick 102kg
    2. Simon 81kg
    3. Alen 82kg
    4. Chris 87kg
    5. Chris 100kg
    6. Max 69kg
    7. Ryan 86kg
    8. Mick 84kg
    9. Ghosty 63kg
    10. Dan 75kg

    These were the top 10 placings, as you can see, it doesnt favour the heavier guys, its balanced.
