I did the "Mid-Atlantic Strongest Man" yesturday and placed 3rd out of 7 guys.
This is one of the heaviest and hardest shows in NASS for the lightweights 200lb and under, there were no sloutches there, I had to work hard for that 3rd place.
I won two awards, a battle axe for my 3rd place finish, and a sword for the most "heart" award, because I've kept comiing back to these shows and am now hanging with the top guys in maryland.
I weighed in at 187.5lbs the other guys weighed in the night before and weighed over 200 on contest day, there was one guy my weight.
First event 210lb axle clean and press for reps NO CONTINENTAL CLEANS ALLOWED each rep must be cleaned no jerks allowed.
I did 1-squatclean and 1-push press, BIG PR!!! 4th place.
250lb an arm farmers and 700lb yoke for 20yards ea. I got the yoke about 3/4 of the distance, the farmers walk was easy, 3rd place.
stones 1st stone 255lbs easy, second stone 270lbs got it, couldn't lap the 315lb stone, I should start doing SLDL's now, I also now own a 329lb stone, so I can work with this, 4th place on stones.
tire flip I did 10flips but only got 9.5 flips in the 90sec. 3rd place.
I now know I can attack this tire harder without losing my wind.
conan's wheel, 480lbs loaded but this felt like 700lbs and I'm used to going counter clockwise, we had to go clockwise, 1-1/4 rotations, 4th place
carry and drag 245lb sandbag and 500lb chain drag 20yards ea. blasted through this, 3rd place.
I'll be turning in my entry for "Maryland's Strongest Man" ASAP, it's august 6th same events, same promoter, only heavier and thiers a fire hydrent carry for distance it will be the hardest AM. contest for the "lights" yet.
I feel good today, my sun burn hurts more then my body, my conitioning is on I'm only slightly sore in my upper back traps, and legs. I had fast recovery inbetween events, it was an awsome day.
