Conans Wheel

Showing off a bit more with CAD, Ive put together these plans for a Conans Wheel:

 

The Conans Wheel 

This piece of kit is going to be very difficult to manufacture because its very complex. Theres an axle running through the main support column and the lifting height is adjustible too. One of the biggest problems with these machines is that tall people gain a massive advantage over everyone else because they have a lower lift and can hold the weight lower down their body, making it easier to balance. Short people often find that they practically need to walk on tiptoes to get it around without it hitting the floor. Making the lift height adjustible will nullify this and make this apparatus completely fair.

 

Car Lift Frame

I just finished drawing up the plans for Martins car lifting frame. Its adjustible! After this is made, Martin will only need a set of stones and a conans wheel manufacturerd to have a complete set of "core" strongman events to practice with.

August Strongman Competitions

I will be competing in two back to back competitions at the end of August. On Sunday 27th August I will be competing in the Barnard Castle Truck Show Strongest Man at Streatlatm Farm in Barnard Castle County Durham. This starts at 1pm and the events are log press, basket circle, crucifix hold, carry and drag and truck pull.

The following day, Bank holiday Monday 28th August, I will be competing in the UK Strongman North competition at Moss Farm Recreation Centre in Northwich Cheshire as part of the Northwich Festival. This sarts at 12pm. events are truck pull, farmers walk, log press, medley (carry and load), giant tyre flip and conans wheel.

I have trained my little willy off for these competitions and have cut my bodyweight down from over 22 stone at my last competition in May to 19 and a half stone. Still haven't reached my peak of strength but am hoping to be there in 5 weeks time ready to compete.

My aim is to use these two competitions to gain more experience. I am also expanding my range of events at the gym to practice with and hopefully over the winter i can improve my gym strength drastically. If all goes well i will be looking to enter the UKs Strongest Man qualifier next year.

Barnard Castle - 27th August 06

I have pulled out of this event as I will be unable to travel and fully recover in time for the next day when i will be competing in Northwich Cheshire.

Peter adds: Its still a great event and is definately worth a drive! Its a good day out and you are guaranteed to see some of the UKs best up and coming strongmen. 

Strongman Equipment

My range of strongman training equipment has steadily grown. I already have on site a log press, farmers walk cylinders, car battery (for battery hold), 2 tyres, and several barrels. I recently added a super yoke to this list.

Coming soon is a loading platform, atlas stones, giant tyre, car lift frame and a conan's wheel. Anyone interested in using this equipment is more than welcome to join me in training. I do events training most afternoons so please just ask me.
