Well, I've been training for strength rather than for size the past 2 months now. Stopped "bodybuilding" and started training strongman style...and that includes strongman events!!

Just took some pictures from last nights training so I thought I'd let everyone know how I'm doing and what I've been up to. :)

First one here is of me pulling my buddy's 3/4 ton chevy diesel 4 door AND my chevy 1/2 ton behind it. :D

***EDIT: removed pics

250lbs farmers walk each hand... I think I did 180' or something right around there before I stopped and dropped the weight.

So. I'm curious as to the purpose of the duct tape...

The arms are filling out the sweater sleeves on the tire flip. :thumbup:

Your an animal 840 lbs tire wtf that's insane. If you keep at it i bet you have a good shot at contending. I like the double truck pic, and the tire flip. You should practice throwing full kegs over a wall.

Sav: :P

Teuf: Duct tape??? On the cylinders? Its holding a 1/8" thick piece of rubber to the bottom of the cylinders so that when they drop, they make less noise...lol. :)

sublime: Thanks man. Haven't done much tossing...those are mainly in Highland games stuff, and I'm not really interested in that aspect of it... just strongman. :)

Great work :thumbup:

Thanks Herc. I'm a far shot from a lot of the guys in the sport, but I'm just starting to train for strength and actually focus on getting stronger specifically so hopefully I"ll make some good gains in the next 6-12 months. :)

You're looking much bigger in those pics then what I remember. Way to increase both the strength and bodysize.

Thanks rookie. Ya, I'm about 230 lbs now, probably 15% BF or so. I'm trying to stay under 15% BF or so... so I'm slowly bulking. :)
