I have decided to up my weightlifting game and have started training in strongman events. I'll be competing in my first event the end of July, as a lightweight novice. This morning we practiced for the truck pull. Thirty six thousand pound fire engine from the Sheboygan fire department. I pulled it 50 feet in 53 seconds. What an awesome way to train. Picture is me pulling, a coworker motivating me and the coach is in blue.

You need to have those buck skin pants on…during the event !


It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.

I don't want to have to re sew all the seams I'd blow out.

DaveP, very cool. I was never in any athletics in high school or college, and didn't really find weightlifting until I was 40. No way ill ever be very competitive at my height (5'8"), weight or age. But its a blast. Next weekend we will be training the atlas stones and beer keg clean and press.

Oh, he's been ate up.with lifting since 12 years old or so.
Hit a 500# DL at 14.
Got bored with same 3 lifts a few years back and moved into strongman.
That is pic was the FIRST time he'd ever touched stones or log press, had a lot of technique to learn.
You can see he went a little high with that stone, lol.

Doing great at them now, but has never handled a keg, but ran into an older lifter at a 100% RAW event a few weeks back who is local and used to run strongman events. Told him to.come by and train with his crew, to esp.kegs.

Same guy walked up.to.him at a meet when he was 13 or 14, while he was " warming up" and said, " Son, you are a natural born bull, but you are also an idiot! You will kill yourself lifting like that!"

Then recommended some local.folks to train with.

Strongman folks are incredibly helpful
Had a guy about 50 there with his son, who gave him wraps for his forearms for stones and gave him some advice.
Invited him to train with them too.



It is FUNCTIONAL strength!

Glad you are enjoying it. I'm back to.hitting the weights some but I'm pretty broken up.

Cool stuff you guys.
I unknowingly got into the sport by heating my home with fire wood.

Strongmen are great people. We all root and cheer for each other, even though we are competing against each other.

DaveP, your kid is doing great. Technique will help him lift more and avoid injury. The sport is growing by leaps and bounds right now. I'm 44, so injury prevention is very important to me. I am in it for fun and to stay motivated to stay in shape.

I hear that!
I Tom Sawyered him and my youngest into seeing who.could split 10 rounds quicker.
" Too close to call, better try again".

Then, "I'll go get pizza if you stack it".

Works every time.

Too late. He had shoulder surgery at 18, hip at 19.
Good since and way stronger now.

His coach is 64.
Can't do much but bench anymore, but ripped off 20 reps at 220 AFTER they finished training.
And we met a 80 yo Israeli man at 100% RAW World's some years back who was still competing and still strong.

Lot of guys peak around your age!

ETA
We drove up Appleton some years back for HS Nationals, beautiful country.
But COLD!

hey if you want to come train with me I have a LOT of rounds you can carry out and put on the trailer should really help with those stones

I know Zim is only sort of Joking , you move a lot of rounds often and you find some young guy who things he is strong and he can't hardly budge a round you lift and toss on a trailer or in a truck


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

I've moved plenty of rounds, but I know what you mean. There is a difference between gym strong and functional strong. To me, that is the appeal of strongman, you are actually moving things, not just lifting weights. The comp I am doing the end of July has a loading medley, truck pull, atlas stones, squat for reps and an overhead keg press.

construction outfit I worked for back in the early 90s did some work for MR.T the actor from the A-Team , Mr.T tried out the 90 pound air hammer and proceeded to bury 2 bits so the wirey little guy had to dig them out and keep busting up the concrete.
the boss went in the house with MR T , to see his weights , it was mostly low weight HIGH reps to get the "look"

they got some great pictures that used to hang in the office.

As one strongman said during an interview, "six-pack abs don't mean you are strong, they mean you don't eat enough."

I never thought I’d have of ended up being the guy to get up at 5 o’clock every morning and lifting weights. Turns out I was right. Lol
Good for you though!!

Wow, strong work!

Loved the, " You're half way there, why quit now?"

THAT is motivation.
