    How many of you guys actually compete


    Just wondering how many of you guys actually compete in Strongman. And what contests you have coming up. I just competed in a contest in Columbia SC and have the beast of the east in Myrtle Beach SC coming up in April.

    I've done 6-strongman comps all in Waldorf MD

    I'm doing the mid-atlantic strongman in may (in waldorf) and will do the "maryland strongman" in the summer........some big weights to be carried for us 200lbers in these shows, and the 231+ guys for an am. contest!!! lots of fun indeed.

    I've done 2 strongman shows, > 10 olympic lifting meets, and > 15 track and field (throwing) meets since 2000. I'm in my mid-40's.

    Firm believer in

    'It doesn't count if it ain't done in a meet'.

    I'm getting ready to start competing again, I did a lot of meets at 198 when I was in my 20's, now I'm trying to get down to 240. Problem is I took so many years off my lift's aren't real competitve for 240, a few meets should help it along. By the way I'm in Sumter, nowhere in between ya'all.

    Sticks: Maybe if the 19 other guys competing have bad days!!

    This is my first comp in a year and a half. Life got in the way for a while. I'm just looking forward to getting back into it and seeing how I stack up in Tulsa.

    Good luck in your training in the upcoming comps!
