Event Day w/Axle Press PR w/VID
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.
I ended up having to hit events again on a Friday this week like a couple weeks back. I don't mind this at all, but it's pretty taxing with 3 back to back training days. I do think the weeks that I have to train like this though will be beneficial. I don't want to make a habit of it, but since Nationals is a two day competition I think it's good to go into events a bit fatigued from time to time.
I had a great training session today. This week and next week are the toughest weeks of this training cycle. Then a deload followed by another 6 week training phase before Nationals. I'm really happy with how things are coming together and even happier with how today went.

The second run was interrupted by the Police since someone decided to call the police on us for training strongman in the street. This happens about once a year even though it's a low traffic street and we leave plenty of room for people to drive through. Some people are just dicks. With that being said I finished the medley before talking with the police officer.
