@SvenG - Thanks Sven, it was a great day! I’m up roughly 8lbs since the beginning of the year, so I’m definitely taking up more space than I was!
@simo74 - Dive, trip, potato, potahto; and yes, that tire flip thing was a beast. It was fun in a frustratingly-difficult kind of way.
@whang - Thanks Whang! You weren’t the only one, if you have the volume on you can hear a fair amount of the crowd gasp as well. I got pretty lucky with where/how I lost my footing. I was able to recover quickly and without injury!
Great write up, videos and an awesome performance! Some of these looked way too light for you, mate!
I’m glad you had a great experience and I’m all in favor of you doing more strongman.
Also awesome to get a chat in with Mitch Hooper.
Well folks, I ended up gaining roughly 8lbs since the beginning of the year. This was somewhat intentional as I had room to fill out my weight class for my recent Strongman Comp. No future competition plans at the moment, so I’m going to take this time to get my diet in check and work in a little cardio, key word here is little. I woke at 220lbs this morning (lighter than I anticipated), but we are making our goal to hit sub 210lbs by the May 26 deadline (exactly 10 weeks from today).
1lb per week cut commences, meow.
