My gym is having a local strongman comp like they've done in the past. I've always wanted to enter to see how I do, so I decided this is the year pending I stay injury free. There are 4 events, the bent lift, barrel lift, rolling thunder, and cheat curl.
I was just checking to see if anyone has done any of these events and can give me input on things that might help me out that I might be able to work into my regular routine. I was planning on doing these events once a week up until the event along with my regular scheduled workouts, which would bump me to working out 6 days per week, and then taking off completely 2 weeks before the competition so that I am well rested. Like I said, I'm just doing this for fun, I'll be in the 220lb-Unlimited category, and I know there is a 317lber in there so no one has a chance of winning, as he wins everything. I am in no way a powerlifter or strongman, and most of the guys in the comp. arent either, its just pretty much for fun, but then again, I dont want to come in last place either
I'll find out more info tomorrow as far as weights, etc.. when I talk to the guy putting it on.
