S A T U R D A Y Session

Hereโ€™s a little weights workout you can bust out this weekend if you are into clean and jerks.

Itโ€™s been a little while for me with this lift, I have a lot of work still to do, but Iโ€™m really pleased I managed to push them up ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

I also cooked a roast dinner whilst training, so you know, just multi tasking over here!

5 rounds focusing on tekkers:
5 x Clean and jerk ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ increasing the weight with each round

4 rounds:
10 x Slam ball over shoulder @ 50% bodyweight
10 x Press ups

And then my roast potatoes were very crispy so I had to call it a day ๐Ÿ˜‚

The clean and jerk is a hugely technical lift with a lot of moving parts. I got taught this lift by Charlie at Red Beard Barbell Club so if you are keen to add Olympic lifts into your training, you definitely need to get taught how to do them to understand the moves, the technique, to perform them safely and to build your confidence.

In two weeks time the Base Competition Team will be stepping onto the platform for the first time in a Powerlifting Competition at Red Beard Barbell Club
Today the comp team met up under Head Coach Gareth to set their start weights for the Squat/Bench/Deadlift.
At Base we encourage members to try new sports both in and outside of the gym.

Join the Team
The benefits of having a C O A C H

If you are unfamiliar with exercise, you donโ€™t know how to squat, lunge, deadlift, overhead press, press up, bench press et donโ€™t know where to begin or how to learn how to execute these exercises correctly so you feel them in the right muscle groups and how to progress them, then getting someone to teach you all of that is the safest, most effective and time efficient way to learn.

A good coach will:

โญ๏ธ Teach you how to safely perform exercises with good form.

โญ๏ธ Teach you how to feel the exercise in the right muscle groups and feel when it isnโ€™t being performed correctly.

โญ๏ธ Teach you how to progress your fitness and your strength.

โญ๏ธ Educate you on the science behind the training you are doing.

โญ๏ธ Educate and guide you with your nutrition to get you the best results with your training.

Recently I have been learning Olympic lifts with Red Beard Barbell Club

I wouldnโ€™t feel confident just trying to teach myself these lifts. It would be dangerous, I would get them very wrong and I would have no way of knowing if I was executing them correctly.

I could spend months and months getting these really wrong and possibly injuring myself, but instead I spent a session being taught move by move how to execute this lift.

There was a lot of squeeling and laughing each time I missed a movement that failed the lift, but it was great fun learning, and now I have hours and hours of practise ahead knowing how to execute this lift and feeling when it is right and wrong.

Being taught was the safest, most time efficient way for me to learn.

Always be a white belt with the most effective route to your goals being coaching.

Iโ€™m a very lucky boy!! I have a job that allows me to hug big men after theyโ€™ve lifted massive weights!!

@david_t_davies seemed to enjoy it too to be fair! ๐Ÿ˜‚


When the notorious LEWLEW returns to the barn and is as beautiful as ever!

So, as itโ€™s the last day of the week, I figured Iโ€™d share this little nugget of information and a small story with youโ€ฆ

I have ADHD. I was diagnosed very late (6 months or so ago) as a result of changing circumstances in my life.
Iโ€™ve always been very active in sport, rugby, martial arts, lifting, competing and such, but with injuries and surgeries catching up with me Iโ€™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 โ€˜the noisy kidโ€™ or โ€˜the naughty kidโ€™ etc.

It took a few months to find the right dosage of medication but itโ€™s the best thing I could have done!! I went for the consultation because my head was always foggy, Iโ€™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 โ€˜cold turkeyingโ€™ through my headโ€ฆ

These meds have changed my life for the better, Iโ€™m more focused, I have better relationships with family and friends, Iโ€™m better at my job, Iโ€™m a better person to be around (most of the time anyway!)

The point of this isnโ€™t to shout myself up or anything, it is to help people understand that mental health matters and there is help. Iโ€™m very fortunate to have been able to go private for my diagnosis, but the NHS is brilliant for this too and Iโ€™d encourage anyone to go and seek help if you feel you need it.

Iโ€™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, Iโ€™m happy to chat to anyone who wants to talk and listen to anyone who wants to get stuff off their chest.

Iโ€™m Charlie, I have ADHD, I got help and Iโ€™m still here ; ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป๐Ÿง

@rhianon.lovelace.kaosstrength will be at the barn on the 15th July to share her wealth of knowledge of log press & deadlift! ยฃ40 a head, very limited spaces available!

This is the day before she sets a new world record in the deadlift at Berkshireโ€™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 ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป


@david_t_davies put in a hell of a shift, and eventually found his way back to his natural formโ€ฆ the seal!


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! ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป


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, PBโ€™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!



macgyverโ€™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 beginsโ€ฆ

Been told that the damage to my spine is pretty severe but surgery isnโ€™t an option (cheers NICE guidelines!) so, bench it isโ€ฆ 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 ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป


More kids doing awesome stuff!

Archie with a massive 40kg stone to a 3.5โ€™ platform!!

I love the fight in this kid, there was no chance heโ€™d have left without getting this stone today! Great job Archie ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

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! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

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!) itโ€™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, itโ€™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. Thereโ€™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, weโ€™d love to see you soon!

Huge shout to @bigbenciboy whoโ€™s been chasing 100kg strict press for months!

Programmed and consistently worked towards it, diligently training in his garage when he canโ€™t get to the barn, and tonight he got it!!

Great work mate, shot we love to see! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป



Testimonials are amazing and all, but the people behind them are soo much better! Rosie is a legend! Itโ€™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, canโ€™t wait to see whatโ€™s to come ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป๐Ÿคš๐Ÿป


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!

Iโ€™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!
