    Beginner friendly strongman contest in NC

    The Strongest Man st the Y will be held March 26, 2011 at the Salisbury, NC YMCA. This contest started in 2009, there is a Spring and Fall contest each year. If you have never competed before this is the perfect introduction to strongman. It's a non NAS sanctioned event, entry fee is only $25 and first place in each of 4 weight classes is $250 cash. Events:

    -bus pull
    -atlas stones (probably 170, 235, and 280lbs)
    -circus dumbbell press
    -fingal fingers
    -prowler sled push

    Silverback Strength Equipment will be one of the sponsors- cambered squat bars, push sleds, atlas stones, and 2" axles will be available to try out and buy the day of the contest.

    I am going to send the link to friends of mine at the Clemson Weight club. Lots of young guns there who want to try strongman so maybe this is a good contest for them.

    So I have some people interested, but they are worried about competing since they have Zero experience with any of those events. Are there going to be any group training days offered or do you know of any groups in the area who will be training for this?
