Cameron Wins Winter Wreckage

Strength

Well sometimes it is better to be late than never…

Our buddy Cameron competed earlier this month in NAS Winter Wreckage.

This is his first open competition since winning his Novice in October. Any coach knows the struggles and frustration that comes with athletes that constantly want results but do not put in the appropriate amount of time and/or drift off from programmed training.

Cameron has been the opposite of that thus far. He is in the gym weekly event training and prepping for his contest and today it showed and paid off.

Cameron set out with specific goals in mind and had several PR attempts in mind.  At Mongrel Garage our goals for our first Open competition are pretty simple. No goose eggs and try not to end up last. A few other goals but those are the two important ones we emphasize.

Cameron’s day started out with the Log Clean and Press for Reps. He tied for first in this event and got off to a very good start.

Followed it up with a 2nd place finish in the Rolling Thunder.

Thirdly, Cameron was the sole winner of 1st place in the Keg load event. An event that his height helped and constant work in the gym. We love these type of events.

directly after he went into the Car Deadlift. We were all confident with his 15 reps but the two competitors following him pumped out 20 and 21 reps. Very impressive. 3rd place on that event.

Lastly was the Sand bag event which Cameron placed 3rd in.

Cameron took first place by 2.5 points and Qualified for NAS Nationals in 2016.

Good day for him. Congratulations buddy!

congratulations

This article is intended for anyone that is interested in trying the Farmers carry or anyone that might be struggling with it currently.  I hope you enjoy the read.
