Nationals Write Up – Pulp Fiction
Keeping it simple, Stupid.
The K.I.S.S. Principals were taught to me by a steel jawed and buzzed haired militant college baseball coach as he yelled obscenities at our Little League McKean County all star baseball team 17 short years ago. Coach Sudbrook guided our collection of prepubescent [...]
This is being written at 3:30 in the morning on Saturday October 27th.
I’ve found myself in this very exciting pattern of wearing myself out through workouts, running the gym and overall worrying to the point of falling asleep every night by 9pm. Then waking up dastardly early for no apparent reason.
Once I get [...]
So this past week saw the opening of our beloved and let’s be honest: sometimes tedious venture of IRONMILL!
After the tornado that was the York Fair subsided we focused in our efforts on actually opening the facility. I dont write this lightly, because nothing good ever comes easy. But had I known..had I had [...]
So this past weekend has been a whirlwind of carnies and good time greezy fair “food”.
The fact that IRONMILL was “ambitious” enough or lets be honest just plain crazy/ignorant: that we thought it a good idea to not only open a gym, but promote a huge contest during that opening was cause enough to [...]
Hit some pressing while we were knocking down walls today at the gym/facility.
1st day of dieting for nationals. Experimenting with half eaten cheeseburgers out of the garbage.

After a good 7 weeks of hardcore strength inactivity ( 4 post contest + 3 post feets break) I called up Ironmill Team Member Jonny P and we set up an impromptu session at The Storage Unit of Truth. Why Truth ? Because you find out where you stand with no frills. No [...]
I am not going to act like I haven’t started a nationals training and then not finished it. Its happened plenty of times before.
Infact, I am basically the king of wish washy commitments to the sport previous to this year. It really wasn’t that I didn’t care, but things come up and I’m [...]
This is what happens when you make dumb decisions concerning 400 lb. strongman implements.
Really testing out the Overcome Everything mantra !
Right now my workouts consist of very very lite upper body work.
Its been kind of a rally cry for me to come back from this for NAS Nationals this year.
Video – Note: AC/DC – Not really my style normally, but fit nicely here as back drop.
I have been lucky enough to be involved with this contest for the past 4 years.
The first year I simply tested events and drove the larger than life competitors around and promoter Al Thompson was [...]
