Well, basically on a whim, I decided to enter California's Strongest Man. It is next Saturday, March 17th, on the beach in Huntington Beach, in the same location that WSM was a few years ago. This will also be shown on the Travel Channel at some point.

I essentially have no experience in Strongman, with the exception of some tire flipping.

Here are the events...

Max Log Press-3 Attempts, rising bar starting at 200 lbs going in 25 pound jumps

Keg Over Bar-6 kegs as fast as possible

Medley-350# keg over bar, 850# tire flip x3, keg, tire flip x3, keg

Truck Pull-80 feet, last year they pulled a big Uhaul

Atlas Stones-275, 300, 330, 360, 380 to 48" platforms

I feel pretty good about the keg toss, since I spent half my life throwing things and the truck pull, because well that 905 squat has gotta come in handy for something.

Stones and Log Press are gonna be a crapshoot with no technique. Tire flip should be alright and the heavy keg lift will be, who knows.

More than anything though, I expect this to be really fun and there have been very few times in my life that I can say I'm going into a competition to have fun. Of course, I want to do well and am gonna compete my ass off, but I wanna enjoy it, I want my friends to enjoy it, I want any random hot girls in bikinis walking by to enjoy it and then we can all go party after.

If you are in the area, the competition is from 10am-5pm (I'm guessing on the end time) right across from the Hilton in HB (21100 PCH)
