Article By Michael Battaglino

 

At the beginning of this year I decided that I would do my first heavyweight Platinum Plus competition in 2015. I knew I needed to find one where the events were reasonable for my current strength levels.  The LA Fit Expo was just too heavy for me, and the timing of the Chicago show wasn’t right. So, I settled on San Jose because the weights were reasonable and I knew I could hang out with Kalle with his horses and dogs all weekend (it was totally worth it just for this). Once I got a little bit into my training cycle I set the following goals.

Compiled and Edited by Bryan Barrett

In “Learn from the Pros Part 1” we heard from three American Strongmen who reached the pinnacle of Amateurism in 2014 and earned the coveted Pro Card; becoming Professional American Strongmen. In Part 2, we will hear from the other three strongmen who earned Pro Cards in 2014. After compiling the data for these two articles, I noticed there is not a clear cut process to becoming an elite strongman. I have always wondered, “Do you need to have a training partner to reach Pro status?” According to this survey, two of the six pro card winners in 2014 trained alone the majority of the time. To the competitor qualifying for NAS Nationals for the first time, “How many weeks out should I start training?” Five of the six strongmen start training 12-15 weeks out from big competitions and all six have a plan every time they step in the gym. Compare and contrast answers from these six strongmen in both parts 1 & 2 and find details that you can apply to your training to help you reach your strongmen goals in 2015.

Stefanie Tropea: Evolution of a Strongwoman

Article By Julia Holthaus

Strongman can be an unforgiving sport. Contests are won and lost by fractions of seconds or mere inches. It is physically taxing on the body, demanding of time and often, above all else, mentally draining. To survive in the sport, an individual has to find that special something, something most don’t possess, something most average people don’t even know exists. An intangible quality. An iron will.

When it seems as though the odds are stacked against them, strongmen (and women) tap into that something special. They crush weights they never dreamed they could lift in training. Move faster than they ever have before. Go harder than they ever imagined. Sometimes, they end up on top. Sometimes they don’t.
