Watching a bit of Ryan Lochte's Strong Man cross training and thought of Critter and his pursuit.

Oh yeah, he uses some of the classics. Keg toss, tire flip, anchor chain drags...
Cool stuff, thanks Smile

You helped make it all hit home for me. How's the lifting going?

Had an injury where I couldn't put weight on my foot for a couple months but now I'm back into it. Set back a bit from where I was but hoping to break a 500lb deadlift within the next two training cycles after the games.
Also doing yoga every day to fix my biomechanics so I don't get injured again.
Thanks for asking.

Wow, pinched a nerve myself causing near complete numbness in right leg for a week. Down to just big toe numbness MONTHS later.

You keep up the pursuit.

Oh, and I was just doing Insainty work outs

Insanity is cool. They had them in the cardio room in my old gym.

Always in awe of strong man competitors.

It is all I can do with simple weighted Push ups, Pull ups, Squats and Crunches three to four times a week...

Then you see a guy carry a log and pull a truck!

These guys are awesome. Smile

That's strange bro, I'd think you'd do well.

It's the only thing I do that's even close to being considered heavy. Smile

I'm best at picking stuff up and carrying stuff. That's really my strong point, pun incidental.

I'd imagine that it would translate to great pull ups... Hmm... Interesting.

It's the opposite direction Smile
Keep in mind that I weigh 250 lbs. I can do a few pull-ups, but not like somebody lighter can.
