  • GA Strongest Man 2011

    http://youtu.be/7LFHWZNvRw4

    Here is my video from the weekend. I ended up taking fourth, 2.5 points out of 3rd. The 231 class is just so freaking tough. I am getting faster and stronger, but I still am always a second behind or a rep behind.

    My camera man missed the first 3 reps of the dumbbell. I ended up with 8 total. it weighed 140lbs, the globes were 10" and the handle was 3"

    The wheelbarrow was rough! Empty it was 900lbs, first keg was 150lbs. next 3 were 200, 225 and 250. I bitched out on it honestly... I ripped a callous and stopped. not sure if you can tell from the video, but after loading the last 2 kegs it is up a incline. so you have 1700lbs? that you have to keep from rolling backwards and then move forwards. Only 3 guys finished.

    The deadlift was 670lbs, I pulled it with ease. But when I got to 710, I didnt have it.

    600lb tire flip for quickest 10 flips. I lost some time on the first couple of flips because it didnt land flat. I tried on one flip to catch it off the bounce, but that didnt work haha

    Stones were 240, 275, 295, 310 and 335. They didnt stop the clock till the stone was in the circle. Why I was a little frustrated at the end lol one of the best parts of the day for me was after the heavyweights had did their stones. Their heaviest one was 390lbs. No one loaded it, so it was still sitting there after they were done. I had already taken my tape off and had very little tacky left on. I just wanted to see if I could lap it. I lapped it and loaded it after no one else was able to!

    All in all it was a good day! Had a lot of fun competing and hanging out with some good friends. I learned a lot too. Hope y'all enjoy!

    Torn callouses suck, as always, lol

    The hard work will pay off, like you said, all you need is one rep here or there...

        Awesome job movie, looks like you had no trouble at all with that circus dumbbell.

          They do suck, but surprisingly it be we really hurt! Except when I poured alcohol in it haha

          But it didn't bother me with the deadlift or tire or stones. It was the first one I have torn that bad, I was expecting it to be a lot worse.

            The dumbbell was not bad... As long as you used your legs. There towards the end you can tell I was getting tired and losing form.

              Nice work! And it is good to hear that your stone loading has come back.

                Thanks Tom! Feels good to be good at stones again haha after the central GA I was quite embarrassed of the whole performance.

                I reevaluated and took a different approach to diet and training. Also added front squats back into my workouts and I really think they helped a lot!
