Strongman Competition Day Questions

So I’ve found a strongman comp I want to try out. It’s this March in Ft. Meyers, FL. I’m going to try the under 200lb class since those weights will be what I can handle. My biggest question is will there be any time or weights to warm up with??? I can understand if they don’t let you warm up with the stuff for the event, but are there any weights to use to warm up with?? Are all these guys walking up cold to a 300lb log or 700 tire and going at it… Any insight would be greatly appreciated…



Most competitions allow for some kind of warm up. It’s very common for competitors to be allowed to warm up on the specific equipment before the show and between events. Some contests will have a barbell or two lying around for general warm up work.
