First Training Session for The Arnold

I am currently training for The 2014 Arnold Amateur Strongman Fitness World Championships. This will be held at The Arnold Sports Festival Feb. 28th through March 2nd in Columbus, Ohio. I’ll be competing in the Lightweight 185# division.

The first session went pretty good overall. I had been up since 4:00am to go hunting and had sat in 30 degree weather from 5:15 until 9:15. After a quick meal and hot shower I headed to the gym.

Some of the events or implements I haven't touched since Nationals or before. So it was good to get my hands back on them. I could definitely tell it had been a while on a few as my techniques was a little off. But that is to be expected when you haven't touched them for a while.

Overall I had a great training session though and I'm looking forward to how things come together during this training phase.
