Team story

Hi, [p]My name is Tom Sullivan, and for those of you that dont know me, I'm a Senior Technical Manager for Berkeley Homes West London, currently working on the Chiswick Gate project. [/p][p] [/p][p]After seeing all the hard work put in by others to raise money for BHWL'S chosen charity Bexley SNAP, I thought it was about time I did something myself. However as cycling and running are not my thing I have gone for something different and entered a novice strong man event![/p][p]This is a very challenging event and will test both my physical and mental strength so looking for you guys to help out and make it all worth the pain and be able to give a little something back to others less fortunate or those that just need a little help.[/p][p]Please give anything you can, every little helps, and thank you in advance for your very kind donations![/p][p] [/p][p][b]Basingstoke Strongest Novice 2 Hosted by Elite Bodyworks July 4[sup]th[/sup] and 5[sup]th[/sup] 2015[/b][/p][p][b] [/b][/p][p]4[sup]th[/sup] July Novice Female Under 70kg and over 70kg[/p][p]5[sup]th[/sup] July Novice male Under 95kg (which I’m entering) and Over 95kg[/p][p] [/p][p][b]Event 1 Deadlift [/b][/p][p][b] [/b][/p][p]Start weight just to compete 180kg! with 3 nominated attempts at higher weights (currently my PB is 200kg so aiming for 225kg on the day…..)[/p][p] [/p][p][b]Event 2 Axle floor to overhead (fixed weight over head press from floor position)[/b][/p][p][b] [/b][/p][p]As many reps as possible in 75 seconds weight 85kg!
