This weekend brings Scotland's Strongest at the SFN Expo in Glasgow. Tom will go head to head with brother Luke as in previous years. Tom is looking to take the title this year and his prep had been on point. Tom will also be going for that magical 255 stone record! We know Tom has done it in training but can he do it under pressure, yes we think so! Tom has been consistent with his training and his numbers have been increasing. There are also a number of up and coming fellow Scottish strongmen who will be looking at causing an upset. It looks to be a very interesting competition.
Take a read of Tom's thoughts about this weekend.....
Current Weight 160kg
Current Kcal intake 9000
Current Diet Tom?
So I do zero carbs 9 days out till about 3 days out. This is to empty all my stores
and get me ready for a big load. I then eat 10 meals from Wednesday to
Sunday and feel amazing come comp day!!
How has your prep been this year?
Its been good. I have had 2 comps previous with 3 weeks apart and got Dubai
after SSM so trying to train for everything is hard but its strongman so we get
on with it. Im mentally and physically strong so lets see!
What are you most looking forward to this year at SSM
Going for the 255kg world record stone
Can you take the title this year
Anyone can. Its all about if I want it more and am hungry then I know I can.
Who are your biggest threats this year
Well that's got to be Luke.
Will you be back next year
I wasn't going to do SSM this year and focus on stone and 400kg deadlift. I got
a venue for deadlift later in year so that’s covered but I'm glad I'm part of it this
year! Lets just say if I win then I could be. WSM is my goal and if i can get
there by doing as little comps as can I will.
Your first meal after SSM
Big greasy takeaway & Haribo
What next after SSM?
After SSM its 2 weeks home then fly to Dubai for WUS which is going to be the
biggest comp to date regarding prize money, venue and athletes. We are going
to be treated like Kings! It will open eyes in the strongman world and I'm glad to
be part of it!!!
Cheers Guys - WALK WITH THE STRONG!
