Re: My day with Rick Scarpulla of Ultimate Advantage (Westside 4 Athletes)

Did my first strongman competition! Once again proved the versatility of the template as I worked strongman movements into my assistance. For example, some days I put stone practice as #3 on a lower day, or zercher carries as #4 or 5 to get ready for the Conan's wheel. As I got close ME lower day turned into mostly strongman movements. I also added a lot of 1 arm DB shoulder press and push press to get ready for the circus dumbbell (only one person out of the 23 light and heavy weight novices got more reps on the circus DB than me).

I had no problems with the implements and came in a strong 4th out of 13 lightweight novices (neck and neck with #3 guy). I also beat 5 out of 10 of the heavyweight novices who used the same weights as we did. I put a few of my events on youtube:

Thanks again to Rick for his help gearing up for it!
