Event Day - Circus DB PR and Crappy Yoke

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.

I had a pretty good event day overall. I did have some issues on the yoke though. Turns out since it was 27 degrees outside I had on a t-shirt and a hoodie. This combined with a heavy yoke day caused some problems. The yoke didn't feel stable on my back and actually slid off once. I realized this after my last set. So I stripped down to just a t-shirt and problem was solved. Yoke felt stable, solid and in place. I have carried in multiple layers earlier this year, but since it was lighter weight I don't think I had an issue. Regardless I'm just glad I figured out what my issue was.
