    it's a lot of fun but you need to be strong as shit to do well in it :hs: and your body will take a beating when you do events. i've done two small shows, fwiw

    Used to, till I broke my arm and got a rod put in it. Its a lot of fun, check northamericanstrongmaninc.com and marunde muscle to find training groups and figure out your routine.

    Like TZ said you gotta be cock strong and your body takes a beating

    Best places to go to for some good info.

    I've been for almost three years now and it does take a toll on you. I'm not the greatest, but I think I do well by usually finishing in the top-half or third of the field. Don't let the events or weights stop you from trying a local show though, it all depends on who shows up that day. It would also be a very good idea to train with the implements and a group of people that do this regularly.

    I have competed and want to do so again, it's a blast and the people are awesome.

    Just be prepared to destroy your lower back :mamoru:

    and if you're competing with the adults you have to be strong as fuck if you don't want to bomb out on the majority of events. (unless you're doing a noob comp, which there is nothing wrong with)
