strongman
 
A couple of weeks ago I competed in my first ever strongman competition and it was a blast. It was a pretty small contest (I think only 12 or so people actually competed), but we had a pretty nice crowd turn out to watch and all of the competitors were great. Everyone was extremely positive, helpful, and we all encouraged and cheered each other on. I for one know that it hooked me and I can't wait to compete again if the opportunity arises, and I would encourage anyone who is interested in competing to give it a try.

Has anyone else on the board ever competed? and if so, what was your experience like? I was actually pretty surprised at how friendly everyone was and I was wondering if this was the norm or if I I just lucked out and happened to compete with a good group of guys.

Also, how do you incorporate strongman training into your regular lifting programs, especially if you don't have standard strongman equipment at your disposal? (i.e. no axel, stones, logs, etc.)

Thats awesome that you competed. I would like to try it one day so its nice to hear that it was a good time.

I think alot of guys that want to train strongman end up having to put together courses in their backyard/garage.

My girlfriends, friends ex boyfriend was a pro strongman who competed for the britains strongest man title.
He got into the top ten, we saw him on telly once, I never met him though, but on telly he looked huge.

the comp that i was in was essentially a novice competition (most of the guys had never competed in before), but the guy who put it on was a fairly highly ranked amateur who is working on his pro card and the dude is built like a tank
