Hey all, I'm thinking about doing a strongman contest next month. The events are:
2 inch Axle Overhead Pressâ?? One Clean, press for reps (60 sec)
Farmers Walk 40 feet (60 Sec)
Women: 140# (per hand)
Deadlift - 2 inch Axle with tires (approx 18â?? off ground) (60 Sec)
Yoke Walk 40 feet (60 Sec)
Atlas Stones (5 Stones, 48â?? Platform, 60 Sec)
Women: 115, 135, 155, 175, 200
What can you tell me about these? What are the rules? Are you allowed to push press for the overhead press? How low do you have to bring it down? Is sumo stance permitted with the deadlift? Any training suggestions, knowing that I'm generally at a commercial gym?
Thoughts and advice appreciated!
