Hey everybody, I just competed in a local strongman competition at our rec center today (and won). The thing is, it was at my rec center and I have been getting encouragement from friends to go forward with strongman.
My question is... where do I start? How do I go about training for strongman or even should I be picking up gear?
My current stats:
Today's Events .
Tire throw: 32'10"
Tire flip: 49.22 secs
Farmers Carry (100/arm): 9.27 seconds
Truck Pull (70s Dodge Ram): 24.34 seconds
I feel like these were scratch events and want to do more. Thing is I have no idea where to begin.
Me after the event...thanks to thecityalive for video taping and taking this photo!
Any tips would be great!

We have had many bar discussions about this, Dan. I'm telling you, you can do it.

If you are looking to enter another contest then I would look up a NAS sanctioned event - http://www.nastrongman.com/
There are some experienced competitors who live near you and if you are interested in training with some implements I can get you in touch with them. The easiest way would be if you are on Facebook and can send me a friend request/message, and then I can introduce you to them through there.
