Overall, I’m satisfied. Not necessarily with the results, but that I finally got out and competed. Like I said, now I have a starting point and can set future goals. I thought I could have or should have done better, but it just didn’t happen.
I got 210 on the log press. The farmer’s were easy, but the tire was brutal. I got 12 reps on the fat bar deads. I was very disappointed in that. I easily had strength enough for over 20, but didn’t stay chalked up. I started losing grip and didn’t think enough to re-chalk. I pulled the truck 75 feet in around 37 seconds. And I could only get up to 225 on the stones. I could lap the 250, but just couldn’t stand up with it.
I feel I had the most trouble with the tire. I was one flip away from 50 feet and just couldn’t get it. I need to work on my technique. I feel I spent to much energy muscle-ing it. This was, however, the first time I had even touched a tire.
I also definitely need to work on overhead lockout. I cleaned 220 easy and felt like I could’ve cleaned 250, but I just couldn’t lock it out.
I definitely plan to be more prepared for my next comp, I just wanted to finally put myself out there and say I did it. I strongly recommend others do it, regardless of strength level. It was a blast.
Congrates…how did you do in the other events? The first one is always the toughest to complete and get over. After this one, you will be psyched for the next handful.
I would reccommend training for one…and more then two-three days out. More power to you bro…if you need help getting ready for the next one, please get in touch…i can give you some advice and pointers.
Strongmen comps are FUN!!!
What weight did you compete at?
