RE: Strong Man
The basic standard events that you see in most comps;
A pressing event be it log, viking press, barrels, thick bar, dumbell or a mixture of these.
A static lift , deadlift for max or for reps - be it partial or on a thick bar, Car deadlift, Fishing pole, machine squat etc
Moving with weight, Farmers walks is a standard event but you can have carrying objects ie stones for max distance, Yoke, sled drags you name it you could be asked to move it.
A loading event is another very common event format. Atlas stones, barrels, sacks, rocks or a mixture of all.
A pull event, vehicle pull, sled drag
Then there are the more specialised events ie, Conans wheel, Frame carry, fingals fingers and medleys that can combine any of the above.
Best bet is to turn up strong and give it a go
