Strongman competitions are amazing. I competed in one at my school last year. If you are interested check it out on youtube.com... Fordham Strongest Ram. Looks like you are working with some serious weight though...should be fun to hear about. Good luck.

Sorry Guys. I wish I could include more photos, but the thread is not allowing me to. I will continue to post my training information and if I find a way to post more pictures, I will resume doing that as well.
