  • 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

    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"
    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.
