I have lifted for a while now. And next year I want to compete in a strongman competition. I have no idea how to find one though. I live in central Missouri, so somewhere somewhat local would be nice.
I don't compete in strongman nor do I live in Missouri but...it was the first thing that came up on google. Search engines are a beautiful thing. Good luck man, try talking to Tom Mutaffis. I know he competes in strongman events.
None of the replies are anything in Missouri...,,, thanks anyway
That KC strongman site, latest entry is from 2006, and both emails they give dont work. I'm more than willing to drive to compete, I would just like one that isn't too far away. Especially for my first competition anyway. Thanks for the help, and if you can think of anything else, LMK I'd appreciate it.
Here is one contest in Missouri:
Hope for the Holiday IV
St. Louis, MO
If you want to get in touch with Eric Todd (KC Strongman) just send me a PM and I can send you his email address. He usually hosts at least one contest per year and they actually had one last month:
Kansas strongest man contest was in May and a lot of competitors from Missouri drove out for that one.
Things are a little bit slower right now because there are two Platinum Plus Contests (July - Hartford, CT / August - Dallas, TX) and then most people will be getting ready for Nationals. It seems that most of the local contests there will be between March and June, but there is the contest in December that I posted above.
If you need help getting in touch with local training groups there are quite a few strongmen in Missouri; Willie Wessels, Jeff Bach, Max Pippa, Justin Wheeler, etc.
ehubbard - I missed what you said before. I wasn't tryng to sound unthankful, not my intention at all. Thank you for the help!
I finally got it figured out, and I'm gonna compete. So thats just awesome, cause I've never competed in anything, so I am nervous, but I know I'll do well.
Thanks for all the replies.
I will keep an eye out for any other competitors in Missouri. You may want to try to get in touch with Max Pippa as well...
