Default Brute's ILSA Strongman Write up

To start off, I want to say thank you to Steve here for all his help in keeping me focused and progressing. Stronger every day. A big thanks as well to the crew from BeStrong up here in Bloomington. Now is the time.

This contest was actually one of the best run I've been to. Things went smoothly and quickly, judging was fair, and there were corn dogs available down the street. What more could you ask for.

We started with the record breaker for deadlifts before the actual competition. Our pre-teen set a state record pulling 275. (He's 12 and maybe 120 pounds) Our teens broke their record with a 545 deadlift. Our 200# guy broke theirs with 605 and our women broke their record with 325. Our super heavies didn't break any records though. We had to attempt 645 to break it, and neither Greg nor I could get it off the ground. Still, it was a good time. Then Dustin, one of the super heavies that trains with us sometimes pulled it with no effort without warming up. So there's that, haha.

Our first official event was the truck pull. We had an 18000 pound semi this time. Last time it was a little heavier, but it took me 88 seconds to complete the course. This time I got it done in just over 25 seconds and about .3 seconds slower than the guy who took second place.

After that we had overhead pressing with axles and logs. I managed to get the 200 pound axle without a problem, but the 220 was too much for me. It didn't help that it was raining off and on, but everyone else had to deal with it too. Still, next time I will have no problem with the axle I am sure.

After the overhead pressing, We did a farmers walk. Us fat guys had to use 240 pounds per hand. I was slower than the other guys, but the weight wasn't too bad.

Second to last was the keg carry. The lighter weight classes got to use a 160 pound keg and a lot of them dropped it and let it roll and picked it back up, which is supposed to disqualify them but the judges didn't say much. It was kind of funny watching them slowly tip forward and try to run faster to keep from falling. Kind of scary too, but slightly comical. We had the 240 keg, and this was the first time I have actually been able to walk with it, so I'm pretty happy about that. I made it the whole way, but I was pretty slow.

Finally we had the atlas stones. We used a 300 pound stone and I was actually able to get it into my lap (first time ever) a couple times and almost stood up with it, but lost my grip on it. On the second time, my leg cramped and I dropped the stone, then started seeing stars and had to stop. I don't mind the seeing stars, but its hard to grab the stone again when you're dizzy.

Overall, I feel like it was a WAY better contest than last time. I was able to really try hard and make some new PRs so I was really happy with it.

I'll try to get some pics and videos up soon.

We're all proud of you hombre. Each time you close the gap between yourself and that top dog. Keep pushing. You've added a ton of strength the last 2 years but you've only just begun. You have amazing potential.

Great work Brute. Steve's right, you have all the tools to become a strongman beast! Can't imagine pushing a 300 pound rock left alone lift the bloody thing!
