Strongman Event Day
I am currently training for The 2014 North American Strongman (NAS) National Championship. It will be held Oct. 4th & 5th in Reno, NV. I'm also adjusting to raising a new baby boy while still working, training and living life.
This week is a little hectic so to get all my training in I had to train 3 days back to back. This may not sound too bad, but squatting, keg carry/loads and then strongman events on back to back days is brutal. I was super sore from squats going into today, but once I got going things loosened up a bit. I could tell my legs were a bit fatigued on my presses and carries though. Overall I had a pretty solid day. Today was my first day running this medley with actual event weight and it felt very good.
