Strongman Event Day - 5 Weeks Out Nationals/7 Weeks Out England
I am currently training for The 2014 North American Strongman (NAS) National Championship as well as the Strongman Champions League (SCL) England u90kg. NAS Nationals will be held Oct. 4th & 5th in Reno, NV and the Strongman Champions League will be held Oct. 18th in Southampton, England. I'm also adjusting to raising a new baby boy while still working, training and living life.
Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate yesterday when we were training outside. After my first medley run it came a down pour and wasn't letting up anytime soon. I still had a good day. I'm moving one event I missed to next Thursday. That just leaves 1 set on the medley I didn't get in. I'm not too concerned about that as I had a solid run on my first run.
Bodyweight is sitting around 206-207 in the mornings. This should allow for an easy cut to 200 and then to 198 two weeks later.
