700 lbs tire flip - easy...
Then had to run and grab the 240 lbs sandbag and carry for 100 feet...
Next up was the deadlift medley - nailed all four in 22 seconds, including a car at the end!

Just curious, how much equivalent weight is deadlifting the car like that?
I found a group of guys who train for strongman. Last week I met with them. I've never done any strongman training, but I could flip the 800 pound tire pretty easy. It was a lot of fun and something I'd like to continue. Do strongman competitions have masters divisions like powerlifting? Or would I be competing against 20 year olds?
Awesome work there,bro.
Dig the Popeye forearms you got.
Thanx for the pics.
It is currently a fad, at this writing, for boys to think they need a "six pack", although most of them don't have an ice chest to put it in.
For Strongman the only age categories are Teen, Open, and Masters. Teen is obviously 19 or younger and Masters is over 40. Sometimes you find Teen and Masters guys in the open class in smaller contests where the turnout for their division might not be as great. (it is more fun to compete against 10-20guys than to compete against 3-5).
Strongman training is a really fun way to get a great workout.
