"All American Strongman Challenge" (Los Angeles, CA)

This contest did not go well for me. I got hurt on the first event. Heard something "pop" on my right adductor in the 352 lbs Farmers Walk when I went to pick it up. No bruising occured on my right leg but I think I strained it or tore some fascia.

This really affected me for the rest of the contest because it was very uncomfortable to squat down and pickup things, but I was able to finish the rest of the contest.

2 other guys got hurt worse than me and had to drop out of the contest so I'm glad my injury wasn't that severe cause I was able to compete for both days.
Very tough field of 22 competitors.  Here are a few videos...

It was frustrating to get an injury on the first event but oh well, thats life.  My leg feels better already and I will be back to training tomorrow for the next contest.

Thanks for the support!
