Just got back from the NAS Strongman National Championships out in Salt Lake City, Utah. It was a two day contest with 8 total events including two medleys on the second day, a car deadlift, and some strongman favorites like the log press, atlas stones, tire flip, farmers walk, and yoke walk.
After day one I was in 2nd place out of a field of 48 tough competitors, and after a close battle on day two ended up finishing the contest in 3rd place in the overall LW (under 231.5 lbs) weighing just 215 lbs and with only a few weeks of preparation.
John Schuna won his Pro Card and seasoned competitor Tom Kaufman (2005 200 lbs National Champion) was right there with him up until the final event, and it came down to a foot race on the 9,800 lbs truck push.
I had a great time out there and managed to secure a great placing despite hitting only one PR out of the 8 events. AtLarge provided me with some great supplements to get ready for the contest and will be looking to continue to make some solid gains in the upcoming months
