2013 NAS Strongman Nationals

Well Nationals has already came and gone in the blink of an eye. I had a great time competing with the best in the nation although I didn't place quite as high as I would have liked.

I ended up taking 4th Place in the LW 200# class. A few small mistakes and 4 torn calluses cost me a lot of points. But it was a great learning experience and I had a lot of fun. And to be honest I'm happier with my performance overall this year than I am last years where I took 2nd Place.

There should be a full competition write-up on the main page pretty soon.

I did qualify for the 2014 Arnold Classic 185# Strongman World Championship. At the moment I'm 99% sure I'll be making the cut to compete here. The 200# Worlds are in Finland and in May. With my wife being pregnant and due in April that's out of the question. So it looks like I'll be getting lean(er) and making the cut from 215 to down around 200. Then I'll cut water from there.

Things have been really hectic between being gone all last week and weekend and getting back to reality this week. I'm taking this week off from training and trying to catch up on things. I plan to sit down this weekend and map out my programming and nutrition to take me into Worlds.

Looks Like I'll Be Dieting Afterall,
Chase Karnes
