Friendly community, hard work, good fun! DM to book a trial session
Operating as usual
I’m a very lucky boy!! I have a job that allows me to hug big men after they’ve lifted massive weights!!
@david_t_davies seemed to enjoy it too to be fair! 😂
When the notorious LEWLEW returns to the barn and is as beautiful as ever!

So, as it’s the last day of the week, I figured I’d share this little nugget of information and a small story with you…
I have ADHD. I was diagnosed very late (6 months or so ago) as a result of changing circumstances in my life.
I’ve always been very active in sport, rugby, martial arts, lifting, competing and such, but with injuries and surgeries catching up with me I’ve been able to do the things I love less and less.
I went for a consultation with a physiatrist at @cardinalclinic near me and was diagnosed with ADHD, as it turns out I very likely had it as a kid too, but it was always ignored as I was ‘the noisy kid’ or ‘the naughty kid’ etc.
It took a few months to find the right dosage of medication but it’s the best thing I could have done!! I went for the consultation because my head was always foggy, I’m distracted a lot, I find menial tasks hard to focus on and I get angry quickly for no reason at all, likely frustration about a task I know is simple but is really difficult at the time!
My coping mechanisms had all been taken away from me (sport and competition) so I was just ‘cold turkeying’ through my head…
These meds have changed my life for the better, I’m more focused, I have better relationships with family and friends, I’m better at my job, I’m a better person to be around (most of the time anyway!)
The point of this isn’t to shout myself up or anything, it is to help people understand that mental health matters and there is help. I’m very fortunate to have been able to go private for my diagnosis, but the NHS is brilliant for this too and I’d encourage anyone to go and seek help if you feel you need it.
I’m by no means a medical person, nor do I have any qualifications in such a world, this is purely my own anecdotal meanderings on the topic. That said, I’m happy to chat to anyone who wants to talk and listen to anyone who wants to get stuff off their chest.
I’m Charlie, I have ADHD, I got help and I’m still here ; 💪🏻👊🏻🧠

@rhianon.lovelace.kaosstrength will be at the barn on the 15th July to share her wealth of knowledge of log press & deadlift! £40 a head, very limited spaces available!
This is the day before she sets a new world record in the deadlift at Berkshire’s Strongest!!!
Take advantage of this experience and learn from not just a great athlete, but a fantastic coach too!
Tickets for both available from our website, link in bio 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻
@david_t_davies put in a hell of a shift, and eventually found his way back to his natural form… the seal!
AND THE NEW!!!!
18 months ago, John was in the back of an ambulance headed to hospital with Covid, today he won the 89kg class at the British Championships!
Hell of a result, some great personal wins for John and my first international champion!
This is a great day! 🏋🏻♂️💪🏻
Carry medley for our scamps tonight! 10kg bag and 15kg Husafell for 10m!
Quiet class, but they worked hard!!
Really good fun today for an amazing cause! The mob turned up to max out Log, Yoke and Silver Dollar deadlift to raise money for the local play park rebuild!
Some massive lifts, PB’s and first times always makes the day more special!
Well done to all who competed, and thank you to everyone who helped, supported and donated!
macgyver’d us a Hercules hold using spotter pins, sone fence posts and a load of chain after the last one fell victim to a stiff breeze!
Worked pretty well! Let the grip hell commence!
And so a new chapter begins…
Been told that the damage to my spine is pretty severe but surgery isn’t an option (cheers NICE guidelines!) so, bench it is… got me a bench shirt, had a play with it, looking forward to seeing what I can get out of it!
Watch this space!
Thanks @staplegun16 for helping me get to grips with this 💪🏻👊🏻
More kids doing awesome stuff!
Archie with a massive 40kg stone to a 3.5’ platform!!
I love the fight in this kid, there was no chance he’d have left without getting this stone today! Great job Archie 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻
33 log clean and press, when the log stops for 5 seconds, 20 second farmers hold at bodyweight (rounded up)
Karl had a lovely time as you can see…
Happy birthday Karl! 😂💪🏻
Sunday 15th May
So, last open day we did was the 6th January 2019... A lot has changed since then and we want to show off!
Get on down, there'll be demonstrations, have a go's and beer (Which I think is important!)
Come and see the gym, try some lifts, ask some questions and generally just see what the fuss is about.
We'd love to see you!
Massive benchmark for this weapon! @jack.c_junior_strongman with a 65kg clean on the @bigdogsstrongmandivision log! Will be overhead in no time! 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻
Jack has worked hard for this, been eying it up for months, massively chuffed at this lift!!
Strong Kids is a class designed to get kids strong (duh!) it’s also there to educate, inspire and instil a firm foundation on how to train, how to use weights safely and effectively, how to get the most from training and most of all, it’s to instil a love for sport (in this case, the sports where you pick up heavy things for fun!)
Our kids range from 6-10 (scamps) and up to 16 years old and are a mixture of abilities, goals and reasons for being at the club. There’s no judgement, no nonsense and everyone is welcome.
If the goal is to compete and continue long into the sport, or to lift recreationally for the health benefits, all kids are welcome (sone parents too!) to come along for a trial session.
DM to book in, we’d love to see you soon!

@rhianon.lovelace.kaosstrength is coming to Berkshire’s Strongest to break her own deadlift record - 272.5kg currently at 64kg bodyweight!
Great opportunity to meet and hang out with a truly incredible strength athlete, get some tips and pointers and get those all important insta selfies!
Event sponsor @farolltd
Huge shout to @bigbenciboy who’s been chasing 100kg strict press for months!
Programmed and consistently worked towards it, diligently training in his garage when he can’t get to the barn, and tonight he got it!!
Great work mate, shot we love to see! 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻
Testimonials are amazing and all, but the people behind them are soo much better! Rosie is a legend! It’s been an absolute pleasure to coach her and seeing her compete at this comp is going down as a career highlight! So far from comfort, demons left right and center, got out on the platform and bossed it!
So proud of you @rosiecoombes, can’t wait to see what’s to come 💪🏻👊🏻🤚🏻
An absolute honour to have an athlete in this lineup today! Englands strongest woman qualifiers had some absolute weapons going against each other! Such an inspiring thing to see, women of all ages, shapes, sizes and all giving it 100%!!
The support and atmosphere in the room was electric, athletes competing against each other cheering each other on!
I’m very proud that we have a lot of women at the barn, lifting, getting strong and pushing each other on, so to see it on a national stage is truly a brilliant thing to see, Womens strength sport is making waves, and about time too!
