Meet Recap: Justin competed at his 2nd USS Strongman Nationals, but it wasn’t quite the showing we were hoping for. While what seems like such a minor issues, Justin strained his finger doing sandbag carries a little over 2 months out, and it affected everything. With events of deadlift, sandbag carry, sandbag tosses, and log clean to press, all 4 of these were very hard to train but Justin worked his butt off to make do with what we could. Moving forward one of our big priorities is to get more competition experience, and do a local competition hopefully every 3 months or so to help guide training a bit better as well as get Justin more experience competing. Unlike powerlifting, you cannot mimic a Strongman competition in the same manner as most times its all about who you are competing against on the day versus your own personal bests. So look for more competition updates from Justin in the near future as we will look to starting competing again as soon as possible!
