As I mentioned in my journal, I am gonna do a strongman comp for my school (Purdue). It is open only to students and divided up in weight classes so I might have a chance to do pretty well. Anyway I was just looking for some training tips for anyone that has done any strongman type event or training.
The events are as follows:
Boilermaker special pull- basically a truck pull
Purdue "P" carry- I'm guessing we carry a big "P" a certain distance
Hammer hold- no idea what this is
I have access to tires and a sled. I'll probably fill some 5 gallon buckets with cement for the farmer's walk or carry some heavy db's.
So basically what type of training should I do, what type of shoes/clothes should I wear, and any other tips are appreciated.
