Default My buddy Nick McKinless, stuntman, gripmaster, strongman

Here's a montage of video from Britain's Strongest Man contest.

This gets me pumped up to train again!


He had a super crappy back for a long time. Looks like he's back.

Don Stevenson knew him when Nick was in Australia.

I love the "under 105kg"deal. I'd need a trip to Tijuana to get to 105 kg! I think my tag line would read "mediocre twerp...barely at 77kg..."

Holy Crap!

As Steve said, i've trained with Nick a few times and every time i see him i'm blown away by how fast and strong he is.

He's also one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet and was very generous to the Crossfit Sydney crew in teaching us about strongman training and letting us use his gear.

He's back in Aus next month for a while so hopefully i'll catch up with him then.

Well, that was something. Think I should just take up knitting.

I pale at near the same weight.

Sheesh I couldn't even do one of those events not to mention doing all those things chained together. Awesome stuff.
