WooHoo!Doing a comp in 2 weeks!

Sort of a surprise, surfing net and found this meet. It's an Ironman Push Pull/APF SANCTION.
Bench/Deadlift, assited or raw...and the cool part is there will be strongman events afterwards! Stones, truck pull and tire flip medley. Entry is $60 and NO trophies given
because all proceeds go to cancer research Acknowledgements will be made etc for comp rank, etc I think I will do OK on the pulling and the tire flipping, but never touched a stone...what could I do to prepare? Maybe I could find a big AC unit at the landfield to toss up on a platform? I wonder if some of these landscape companies that deal with rocks, water gardens might hace a somewhat smooth stone? gonna check into it

    to help on the truck pull, try walking up stairs quickly with dumbells in your hand, heavier the better!! itll get u used to doing short powerful steps used inthe truck.

    stones, thats a hard one!!! lol yeah, get some big awkward stuff to throw about. big sandbags are good!!

    sorry, how many world records???

    Only prob with sled is it don't slide well...get caught on bumps in dirt and such. There is some pavement across road from house ...a small company...could take it over there after hours and use there place
