PostSubject: Strongman Day Idea   Mon May 05, 2014 9:31 pm

Alright, as I posted on Facebook, I think it would be really cool to have a club strongman day at Magni Barbell sometime. They have a good amount of really cool equipment and I think we could have a ton of fun doing this. We could separate into two teams and make a little competition out of it. The events can be whatever we choose, but here's a quick list of ideas:

Farmer walk
Yoke carry/walk
Axle deadlift
Axle clean and press
Stone loading (I believe they're getting stone molds and making some platforms sometime in the near future)
Sled drag
Tug-of-war (1v1 and/or team v team)

It's really easy to get different events in strongman, so the competition could be different every time if we wanted. I think we should try to organize something like this a time or two over the summer, and then start really implementing it once school starts back up. We can even turn it into an intramural event at some point. Hell, I would be interested in even starting a strongman club if there was enough interest.

Who would be interested in actually doing this? I think it would be a ton of fun and it would be really easy to organize once we get some ideas going.

i lift things up and put them down

Solum per exitum.

Depends on when it is. If I feel good enough about my back, then I'd be down. If I still have concerns, I'll have to pass and watch the fun instead.
