I'm actually prepping for my first strongman comp. Initially I'm going with just belt and wrist wraps but if I keep competing you can bet your ass that I will have those hip warmer briefs, extra belt, and maybe even a single ply squat suit.
You will do very well in a strongman comp. Something I have always wanted to do. Maybe one day Ill get my fat ass in shape and healthy.
