New England Intro to Strongman 5
« on: May 08, 2018, 09:00:34 AM »
Here we go again.  I'm having a tough time finding a PL meet near me that fits into my life.  Gotta do something about that.  They changed up the classes and separated masters into lw and hw for strongman 5, so I couldn't resist. 


Events are Axle clean and press, last man standing Axle deadlift, yoke, farmers carry, and Keg over bar.  I've never done an axle clean and press, but the rest of it is right in my wheelhouse.  As much as I still love PL, the meets are like funerals compared to strongman meets.  Strongman meets are like a keg party.

As much as I still love PL, the meets are like funerals compared to strongman meets.  Strongman meets are like a keg party.

Yeah I went to a Highland Games and it was like that, beer, turkey legs etc.

Friend of mine does a bunch of highland games stuff.  He calls it "golf for men".

Two weeks out, and feeling banged up.  I've come to realize that I'm supposed to feel banged up two weeks out.  Almost time to rest my body, but might be getting a cortisone shot in my elbow tomorrow.  Learned how to axle clean and press in August, but on my second or third time doing them I messed up my arm in the tennis elbow area.  Hopefully the shot helps, because I'll suck even more than usual if it doesn't .

Got it done and came in first. Tied for first on axle clean and press, first on last man standing deadlift, second on yoke, second on farmers, and first on keg. Only got vids of two events.  Should have gotten first on axle clean and press, but got a no rep for not waiting for the command and I let it get in my head. Shoulda, coulda, woulda.

Want to see the last man standing deadlift TBH, that sounds like a strongman thing I could get in to.

Awesome.  Congrats.
