I had my first competition yesterday, and it was a blast! I competed at a NAS sanctioned meet in San Diego. I ended up placing third overall in the lightweight division out of eight. The events were…
Keg->Circus DB->Log clean and press for 3
My time ended up at 36.8 seconds, which is wayyyy faster than what I had been able to accomplish during training. During training I was scoring between 40 and 45 seconds. In this event, I placed 3rd.
400 pounds for 100 feet
I finished with a time of 15 seconds, which was good enough for first.
Car Deadlift (max reps-60 sec)
I ended up with 31 reps and first in the event
650 75 feet
I ended with a time of 35 seconds, which got me to 4th
Keg over Bar
56" 175 pound keg
Ended up with 12 loads in 60 seconds. 4th place.
Overall it was a great time and I can’t wait to do another! The events that really got me were the tire flip and keg over bar. I had only had access to a 1000 pound tire and a 400 pound tire during training. I think I’m going to go ahead and get myself I tire before my next competition. I had access to a keg, however had been incorrectly practicing the loading event. I need to do more research on the events before my next competition.
As for the most brutal event, it was by far the car deadlift. After my set, I felt like my quads were going to give out.
For the tire flip, any advice on how to be more efficient? I feel like I spent a lot of time getting into position.
