I've competed in quite a few. I'm a Pro from the US and have done several AM shows there, a few Pro shows there, and moved to Cyprus a couple of years ago. Since then I've competed in Poland, Serbia, and a EuroSport show here in Cyprus. I have also promoted and competed in several small shows in Cyprus and a lot of training days all over Europe.

I've done about every event that you can think of.

Is there anything that I can help you with?

just curious how you got started, what YOU did for training for them, etc. i found a link on a local gym's homepage for a contest here in Wisconsin in June or July, and i found myself interested in learning more in case i'm ready to rock by then.

you bet! the contest is in madison, and they had pics on the site. i was quite interested in it - my wife says i should focus less on bodybuilding related activities and instead focus on being a beast that is strong as hell - i'm beginning to gain interest for the 1st time in my life in having high strength goals, instead of just reaching physique goals.

There are so many things that you can do, as long as you are having fun. Try and travel a few times (as soon as possible) to train with a few good guys that have equipment. Magnuss Samuellson, I think it was, said that 1 hour of event training is worth 10 hours of gym training. You will learn so much by watching and trying that you just can't imagine.

I wanted to weigh over 300 lbs one year and got that way, fat. Could barely breath. After that I got a 600lb tire and began flipping it and just dragging a sled and pushing my truck a lot for some events. Made a thick bar and just started having fun.

I did farmers with EZ curl bars, pushed my truck, flipped the tire, and anything that I could imagine. It is all about having fun anyway, right?

Give me a day or two to see if I can find a few guys in your area that train on a regular basis. I have a site too but don't want to direct anyone on here to it if it might cause any problems.

You can put your site in your profile's URL field and in a case like this, it should be kosher to tell him to look in there.

Tony is a hoot and one of the best cooks that you will EVER meet. He has also represented the USA all over the WORLD in Strongman Contests. Now he competes in the Masters Level.
