Full or empty kegs?
did this event take place before or after you emptied the kegs? I would prefer after, makes it more fun.
In college I had to haul full kegs for my bar job, about 150 lbs full? I had to walk up three steps to a landing, turn and another 10 steps up, usually by my self.

Nice work, Mike.
Sounds like you were getting paid to get strong!
The kegs we were using ranged from 75 lbs to 150 lbs. They were filled with water & lead shot to the required weights.

Well done Frank

I hope Capital Crossfit does something similar this summer. ;)

Steven, thanks for the kind words!
All who attended were taken to their limit.
Tom Mitchell showed us our weak spots very well, then showed us how to make them strong points.
The training was unbelievably difficult, I loved it!This will be a regular part of our training down here.

By the way Tom is training Scott Weech Jr. for Strongman!

Hey Mike, we're going start a Strongman Club here, and Tom Mitchell, hopefully, will help us keep on the right track.www.floridastrongman.com
Next winter, I am thinking of putting together a training expo down here in Florida called the
"Sub-Culture Strength Fest".
I'd like to get some good coaches out of the frozen northland (and from other places, too)
to come down for this. Nothing is set in stone as yet, just beginning to get some ideas on it.
Any feedback is appreciated.

Awesome stuff!!!! I love training for those strongman style events. Can't handle the lbs the competitors do, but it's really fun.

Actually, that's not true, when I do some of that silliness with Phil, I use the same implements he does. Just don't do it as far, or as long as him. My least favorite was the weight for height. I could only get that 56lb thingy about 12 to 13" up. he was getting it a good 15 to 18". Or at least that's what it looked like to me. No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn't get it any higher. I have nothing but respect and admiration for those guys that do what they do. Unreal.

All the best,
Arden

I would like to give the highland games a go, I am a McCloud (MacLeod) after all.

There can be only one.

If I can figure out the Youtube/video/posting thingy, I'm going to post a video of me struggling through a 50', 600lb chain yoke walk.
