As the title says I’m going for my first strongman style competition. It may seem a bit timid for what you guys are used to.
Its designed and taken part by those who don’t actually compete in strongman, but are involved In Other sports to come and have a go, however from what I can gather a lot of blokes are pretty dedicated too it.
The events involve a circus DB press, a Deadlift event, an object loading event and I’m not entirely sure what else!
As you can see I’m horrendously unprepared and originally put my name down for the laugh, but now my competitive side is rearing it’s ugly head and I’d love to give those guys something to think about!
The issue being I do t have acces to much equipment and I’m not entirely sure how I should be training, I’ve had a good look round on here and made a rough template. my aim is to be strong enough with good condition to make up for my lack of skill/technique, probably a terrible plan!
It involves 2 workouts a day, twice a week using what equipment I can make, borrow and buy, i’ll be In The gym for the first workout focousing on getting nice and strong and the second wil, be at a local quarry with hill sprints, explosive and Event like movements
Hill sprints/kettle bell work
Shot putt/ hill sprints/circus DB
sled work/farmers walk/axle clean and pressÂ
The axle and sled will be home made, I’ve already got a 20kg kettle bell and the 50kg DB I’m hoping to buy from my gym which has just got all new DBs and wants rid of the old.
Anyone got any pointers? Or just want to tell me I’m an idiot and I need to be more prepared!
Oh and the comp is on august 20th
