Nice form on the Atlas stones,  did you get to practice that much prior or did you just grind it out?

I deadlifted a car and you didn't.
:P


Challenge: accepted.
Pay attention folks, this is how you do a Call Out, and how it's accepted.

I didn't see any Car Deadlift events in there though.  You may have to head to NY to find that. 
I'll say, that if you do go to NY, and I can swing it, I'll come up and compete with you.  We'll both be in the Masters Heavy Weight Class, Shoulder to shoulder.

On the medley,  was it against the rules to throw the sandbag over your shoulder and walk it down? What was the weight?  Done 100# feed bags like that in the past, and it makes it easier.

Looked like you were about to die on the car deadlift. Looked like fun.

It was a 225lb Sandbag.  Not exactly an easy thing to pick up and throw on your shoulder. ;)

The Car Deadlift was fun. Next time I compete, I'll know how to manage my time a bit better and I'll certainly put more into the Deadlift.  I really should have squeezed out a few more reps.

I've done the stones a few times, and they have been getting easier.  That is the heaviest stone I've ever picked though.

Can't fathom a 225# sandbag. 

Looked at the level 1 that is being held in York at the end of next month.  Unlikely I'll ever have any business playing that game at a competitive level.

There is a gym about an hour from me that is a strongman based gym that might be fun to train at a few times when my schedule loosens up.

The sandbag wasn't light, and it was loosely packed which made it very difficult.  A tighter packed sandbag is much easier to handle.
I took a quick look at the York Comp, and that's a tough one.  In reality, anyone can be a powerlifter, because you really are competing against yourself for a lot of it.  Strongman, you do have to be strong to compete.  Masters is using a 700# Yoke for 50 feet.  I don't think I could even get that off the ground.  And a 330# stone over a 48" bar, for reps....  Damn....

Thanks! it was a really enjoyable day.
