1.5 years and counting...

Brisbane North Barbell recently passed 1.5 years since first opening Sep 2014. During this time we've moved gyms to a bigger & better facility, 24/7 access has been installed, greatly expanded our equipment and continued to support the local strongman & powerlifting scene.
Interested in knowing more about BNB?
Please see below for what we've been up to lately...

There's been a number of new equipment additions at BNB recently: A 2nd Force USA GHD, more bumper plates, a 40kg cambered squat bar, 2 prowler sleds, kettlebell rack, another weight plate rack and plyo boxes.
BNB 2016 Strongman series round 2 will be held July 2nd. Male and female competitors of all experience levels are welcome to test their ability over 5 unique and challenging events: Axel bar overhead, tyre flip, keg carry, tyre drag & atlas stone shouldering. More event details here.
On March 12th BNB had a team compete at a local Powerlifting Australia meet. 5 lifters, 4 coaches, plenty of PBs and even a few national record attempts. Next competition is July 23rd where we aim to have 10 lifters competing!
On April 24th BNB hosted a strongman workshop with pro strongman Eben Le Roux to help raise funds for his trip to the Arnolds Africa pro strongman competition. Eben offered some great training tips on improving deadlifts and atlas stones and also put on a demo with a 350kg deadlift (video) and 175kg atlas stone to shoulder (video).
BNB is hosting a fundraiser for #TeamBNB member Kathryn to help her get to the IPF world championships in Texas next month. For every $10 donated, I will squat 10 reps with 100kg, up to a maximum of 500 reps in a single afternoon. To help contribute, please see the event page here.
On April 16 BNB hosted it's 2nd Powerlifting Australia competition with 40+ lifters, a massive crowd and heaps of new Australian records. My 16 year old, 57kg client pulled a huge 145.5kg deadlift (video), while Taylah pulled an incredible 200kg deadlift and Benny Richards finished the day with a massive 330kg grinder (video).
You may have seen a video on Facebook recently about an Aussie man who has lost 34kg by eating 3-4kg of potatoes per day. I decided to do the math and see exactly how healthy the diet was and was both surprised and alarmed.
Analysis here.
Following on from above, some hard hitting truths about dieting and emotional wellbeing.
