Hey RR. My trainer asked me if I wanted to give Strongman a try at an event this June and I said yes. I am hoping to diet down below 200, so I can compete in the lower weight class. I weigh 230# now, so that's quite a ways to go. This is gonna be fun!

Had our first training today.

Log Clean & Press 230 x 2; +2; +3.

Frame Deadlifts up to 580 x 3

Had a good time training with my coach and a couple others. Looking forward to this.

Forgive my ignorance, what's a frame dead lift?

A frame deadlift is a deadlift using a square frame with handles in the middle. Think of a car frame that accepts weights on the front and back and you stand in the middle and pick it up by handles. It is easier than traditional deadlift, so you can get quite a bit of extra weight to go up.

On Saturday March 29, during strongman training, I did a farmer's walk with 300# in each hand, using straps to hold it. That is 600# folks. And I carried it 35 feet.
