A continuingly slimmer Terry Hollands continues to post up videos of his strongman training, despite his self-proclaimed uncertainty as to whether he’ll go for World’s Strongest Man 2013. His definitely taking a new approach to his training – flying in the face of the mass monsters that have dominated strongman as of late. Perhaps he was encouraged by Lalas’ recent performances, proving that you don’t need to be a 10ft, 20 tonne beast to reach the podium.
Here’s Terry doing his first stone run following the bicep injury he suffered during WSM 2012. 110kg – 177kg atlas stones, all looking rather comfortable!
145kg axle press for 5 (first rep cleaned)
…and finally a cardiotastic 16 reps on a 100kg axle (first rep cleaned, rest from shoulders)
Terry’s weight loss has certainly aided his conditioning but the question on everyone’s lips will be whether it’ll have come with a drop in strength too. Unless Terry starts posting up new 1 rep maxes on youtube we’ll just have to wait and see…
