Strongman: More Than Big Weights

I’m not your typical strongman. I compete in a category often referred to as the “little fellas.” My fellow competitors and I have to weigh in at a weight of 175# or less. We’re not exactly the gargantuans you see on ESPN. But if you are fortunate enough to witness one of our competitions you see some amazing ant-like feats of strength. If you have ever thought you were too small, too “normal” sized, or too average to compete in strongman or train like one, this story is for you.

Brian isn’t just the best trainer at the ARC, he is amongst the very best in San Diego ... At the end of the day, Brian is a good guy who knows his stuff inside and out.  He is fun and easy to work with. He works within my physical/health parameters ensuring that what I get out of the sessions is exactly what I was looking for.

2012 Dallas Europa Get Fit Strongman Write Up

Two weeks ago I traveled to Dallas, TX for my first strongman competition in over a year. I was incredibly nervous and excited about my return to competing in the sport. ... I was going to be competing against a couple of guys, Kalle Beck and Mark Taysom, I had competed with then. And since then have watched their training logs and videos improve steadily. There were also some new competitors in the mix and my internet stalking proved to me they were no slouches either. Needless to say I didn't wanna embarrass myself and have my ass handed to me.

New Year's Day 2012 Workout

Crow Pose

Today was New Year's Day and I spent much of it at Mission Beach practicing some MovNat skills as well as some general playing around and trying new things. The following videos demonstrate some of the goofiness.

You don't have to go to Disney anymore to ride the Tea Cups!

The Wolf Run is just fun to do. Maybe I can justify it by calling a practice in horizontal triple extension.

We also did some variations of kettlebell carries, including farmers walks, clean rack position, and waiters walks. Some Turkish Get Up practice was also mandatory.

May 2012 bring you much success in all your endeavors.
