Took 4th, Bombed the farmers walk. It was 105 pounds each hand, a chain through plates with a handle.. So they swung around and I tripped had to drop them and start up again... Real Farmers handles would have been nice. Took 2nd in the Tire flip, tire was only 285 pounds, got 24 flips in a minute. Pretty dissapointed really but I guess it was partly equipment to blame, defenitely wasnt used to that kind of a setup when I train with legit impliments.

Kudos for doing it anyway! That's awesome!

I'm looking at a few around me, but I've literally NEVER done one before. I'm dying to though - maybe I'll just jump in and do it!

You did it, Marc. I applaud you for doing it, and having to do so under short notice. Whereabouts are you in Iowa? I ask, because there is a local county fair here in southern Minnesota that runs a sanctioned strongman competition every year. I think its in mid-July. Maybe you're interested? I might go watch this year.

I may be interested.. Do you have any details on weight, events, etc? It would defenitely be something I would have to start training specifically for.

That is defenitely the way to do it. I was the smallest guy there, well second to smallest muscular wise, although I am pretty tall. I whooped up on a guy in the tire flip that has been on a straight roid cycle for over a year so I was pretty stoked.

Go to Nastrongmaninc.com and check the upcoming events page. I just checked there's one in Waseca County, MN. I'm not familiar with the midwest, but that might be close to you. It's on 7/17.
