View Full Version : My strongman comp vid (log press)

I was in the lightweight class as I weighed in a dehydrated 217. By the end of the day I had drank 26lbs of fluids and tied for 1st place:)

that's awesome Matt. Good job.

Jeez that's a lot of fluid to take in...I would feel like a hot-water bottle on legs.

Always a pleasure to watch your videos.

How much did the log weigh?

Post up any more videos you have of your competition.

The real question is, how did you do in the washer/dryer relay? ;)

the log was 175lbs. I was expecting a 185lb log and was thinking around 12-13reps, but they bumped it down 10lbs and I got 15 haha. Not to bad for no real training for it.

well in the last event after having to flip a tire you had to sprint to a wooden sled loaded with 350+lbs and drag it 30yards. My washing machine was great training as I thought it was harder to drag than that sled.

Awesome. So I take this event was casual more or less? Are you planning on further strongman competitions and planning your training around them to compete in them at your optimal level?

Keep up the good work,
