    Default Arizona Strongest Man

    Did a comp this weekend. Signed up in the novice class so I could have some fun and not just get a 0 on all events.
    First was circuses dumbbell at 125lbs for reps. My max has been 115 in the gym so I knew I was in for a workout. I got it off my shoulder but couldn't lock it out. Time ran out before I could get any reps.
    I then got to watch a kid about 20 and under 200lbs do 4 reps with it. That is just humbling...

    2nd event was Deadlifts at 405 for max reps. I got a few in and called it. I wasn't setting my back and it was going to hurt it if I wasn't careful.

    3rd event was Yoke walk with tire flip. 550lbs for 50 feet and a 500lb tire to flip back. Took that yoke for a run. I think I was 35 sec for my time.

    4th event was keg toss. 5 kegs 22lbs x2 33lbs x 2 44lbs I was able to one hand the keg over the 14' foot bar for the 22lb kegs. The 33's went over easy. Then there was the 44... I swear that thing was eating my soul as I tried to pick it up. It seemed to be glued to earth and just refused to go over the bar. I got 2 tries on it before I ran out of time. Over all I was happy for it being my first time doing kegs.

    5th and final was a 300lb stone to a 48" platform. I got one rep. I was able to do it in the gym for 3 in 35 sec just a week before. Not sure what happened.

    Over all I had a great time and it was good to get back out there and lift heavy. My knee held up but Im paying for it... Its a little hard to walk the last two days. This stupid knee needs to get with the program or I need to find a replacement.

    saw some of the vids on facebook - looked like fun

    how do they determine the weight for the deadlift and yoke stuff? is it one size fits all for each class or is it based on another factor?

    Its per weight class. If I had been competing in my weight class deadlifts would have been 650lbs Yoke= 850 and the tire would have been 1000lbs... Just too far out of what I can do.
