  • 2011 Beast of the Bluegrass

    I competed in the Beast of the Bluegrass this past weekend in Lawrenceburg, KY. It was a good competition with a lot of very strong guys haha I placed 5th, one point out of 4th. There were 9 total competitors in my weight class.

    I had a good day for me personally... I was the 5th to go in every event and would do good and think that I was going to make up ground, but then the next few guys would be a little faster or pump out a few more reps haha It was a platinum competition, so I was hoping to get top 3 to qualify in the 231lb class for nationals. I am already qualified in the 265lb weight class from a earlier competiton, but I am not ready for nationals in the 265 yet haha

    230lb log for reps

    I was going good through 6 reps, I lost my balance a little and that threw my whole rhythm off

    650lb yoke for 100ft

    This was a PR

    Car Deadlift
    Im not sure how much it equaled, but they added 140lbs on the handles

    My first time doing this. It was very uncomfortable... normally I am a good deadlifter.

    Farmers Handles 220, 260 and 280lbs for 50ft each

    Also a PR

    Atlas Stones
    220lb to 65"240lb to 60"275 to 55"300 to 50"330 to 45"

    220lb to 65"
    240" to 60"
    275 to 55"
    300 to 50
    330 to 45

    For some reason I have not been able to load the 330 lately. Its very discouraging, because just in December I was loading a 400lb stone. I have no top end anymore as you can see in the last stone. I use to be able to power that up...

    Overall it was a good day.

    P.S. Sorry its all separate videos. I dont know how to consolidate them into one haha if anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it

          Haha thanks Sammich! One dude busted out 11 reps!

          I definitely need to work on my leg strength. As you can see, my legs didn't factor much

            good stuff!!!

            if you use windows, most versions vista and higher should have a "movie maker" where you can drag and drop videos and edit them together, it is what I used.
