Hey guys. In lieu of another thread I figured I’d make one about my own. Anyway, here is the event page
I am in the HW category (200lbs+ - the weight classes are weird). Here are the weights for my class:
FARMERS WALK- 60 sec. time limit, 50 feet, turn around 50 ft back, best time or distance.
Men HW- 220 per hand
LOG CLEAN AND PRESS- 60 sec. time limit, most reps wins
Men HW- 175 pounds
TRUCK PULL- 60 sec. limit, pull truck 100 ft, fastest time or furthest distance wins
Men HW- 7000 pounds
LOADING MEDELY- 60 sec. time limit, fastest time wins
Men- Keg/Sandbag/odd stone/Atlas Stone; 45" platform
Men LW/HW- 200/150/TBD/270
YOKE/KEG CARRY/TIRE FLIP RELAY- 90 sec. time limit, Walk (or run if you can) yolk 50 ft, pick up the
keg, bring it back, put keg down, flip tire 50 ft. Fastest time or greatest distance wins.
Men HW- 455/185/500 pounds
I don’t have much experience with event training, due to lack of equipment. I have been practicing the Clean/Press, Farmer’s Walk (I’ve just been using the heaviest DBs my gym has, which is 150), and stone lifting (friend of mine at the gym showed me how to stone lift using the sleeve of a barbell).
Are there any movements to mimic the other events? It’s times like this that make me wish I had a sled, surely that would help with the truck pull. But again my problem is lack of equipment.
I know it’s stupid to be asking for advice so close to the competition date, but I don’t come on T-Nation as often as I’d like.
Any/all constructive comments would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you need any background info on my lifts.
