Anvil or Hammer

Strongman was yesterday and wow! Seriously, I think we all did more than ever. Luke carried 272lb for about 30 feet on the farmer carry. I got it for about four steps. We both moved something int the 700s, Luke for 20 feet, me for about two steps. I tried to lock out 800 but failed. I managed to lift the stone to my lap like four times. I still can’t shoulder the damn thing though. I played with the formulator, an okay tool for wrist building. I understand it is great for those who can’t do barbell wrist curls. managed to clean something like 155 on a 2″ barbell.
Luke and Dan were able tohelp me a lot on technique here. I apparently pull more than highenoug, I just have crap for, which is probably why I have injured myself doing this in the past. It’s amazing, when get it, it feels so easy and right and when I miss it , it seems so hard.
I never think it sounds like as much when I think about it after I am done, but my body is sore and in a good way. It was a great time and I will be all that much stronger for it.

In other news, I am finallymaking good on all my talk about thickbars. I just requested shipping info from John onfour dumbell handles 2″ and 3″. I also ordered a benders bag because I’m a bastard like that, or at least want to be (sorry, saw the pun after I typed it and had to go for it).
Great day, grwat training buttrock.gif
