Hello. Last summer I competed in my first strongman competition. It's pretty light as strongman comps go, but I think I did pretty well for a first-timer. I came third last (sounds better than 16th), and my two main downfalls were A. infamiliarity with the equipment (first or second time using it), and sub-par conditioning (my body basically gave up on me halfway through the third event). It was a great experience and I met some really strong guys. Last summer I was only strong enough to do that one comp, but this summer I want to do a few more. Enjoy the video.

That's kind of cool that you went for it. It'll be interesting to see how you do a year later.

You're stronger now than I was a year ago, so you should do ok.

I liked the idea (a guy at another forum I post at started doing them) and I googled "Toronto strongman contest" and that one came up.

They even put me on the front page!

Cool pictures and video dude, looks like it was a lot of fun.

I think I've seen you around the PEC many times, I think we may have even worked in with one another on the platform in the varsity room when Mel was giving tips?

Small world!

Nice vid Klotz, I'm in for the one on the island this summer.

Hey I tried to respond to your PM but my post count is less than 15. Hah, that's testament to how little I post. I do tend to lurk.

Cool to see Queen's people here. I've seen your posts before but didn't realize you were at Queen's. Maybe we'll run into one another some time.

Perhaps. You look kind of familiar. Are you that guy who's really good at oly lifting?
