Kettlebell Contest at Powefest?

Someone recently asked on Napalm's Corner if there would be a kettlebell lifting contest at Powerfest. Here is the answer I put over there:

    "There is a kettlebell seminar on saturday morning, but there will be no kettlebells in the actual strongman contest sunday.

    If there's time, we may be able to do a kettlebell lift for fun afterwards though - who knows.

    If you want to come by, just introduce yourself and maybe we can hook that up. i'm sure there will be plenty of kb's there.

    Dave has BIG kettlebells. I can't wait to try them!"

Like I said, currently, there is NOT one scheduled, but if there is time, we MAY be able to throw something together. At this point, anything is possible, so if you are interested, please come over and introduce yourself and we will see what we can put together. I'd be glad to bring it up to Dave, if there is interest in that.

POWERFEST - This Weekend

This Sunday is the big day!

Who is going to step up?

What numbers have you been hitting on the events?

Farmer's Hold?
Axle Deadlift?
Sandbag Walk?
Truck Pull?

Remember, consistency throughout all the events is what will get you the overall prize money of $250! By all means, try to win each one for the total $450, but don't get down on yourself if you screw up one event. We'll be using conventional strongman scoring, so the first place finisher in event one will start out with 1 point, second - 2, third - 3, and so on. Keep finishing near the top and you will have nothing to worry about.

If this is your first Strongman contest, take the whole rest of this week off. You will need to be as rested as possible for the event. Extra workouts will not do much for you less than 7 days from a contest. Stretch, get a massage, work the foam roller to get the adhesions out, but stay the hell out of the weight room so you are 100% on game day.
