Strongman Events w/2 PRs

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.

Training was off to a pretty good start yesterday until I broke our circus DB on a warm up set. Since it's the only circus DB we had I was unable to do my programmed work here. So instead I did some strict 1-arm DB work. I also got on the phone and talked to a friend of mine, Derek Stone, who lives almost an hour and a half away who just so happened to have an extra circus DB. I was just fixing to get in my car and make the 3 hour roundtrip drive to pick up the DB when I found out one of the strong ladies who trains at Derek's gym was going to be coming to Paducah that evening. So she brought me the dumbbell and it looks like I'll be good to go for the rest of my Arnold prep. Thank you both, Derek and DeAnna.

After the DB incident I was a little pissed, but made the best of the situation. I had a nice PR on both events I had left for the day. So I was happy with the day overall.
