Weekly Round-Up I

I’ve never really done a weekly round-up post of any kind on the blog, but I really enjoy these types of posts from other bloggers, so I thought I would incorporate a weekly round-up into the blog rotation.

 

Find Me Around the Internet

 SO MANY NEW THINGS. Life has been so crazy busy with new things that it’s almost mind numbing. A few new things:

Carb Creatives

You have probably seen my #waronwaroncarbs hashtag on instagram, facebook, or twitter and a fellow lifting buddy, my coach Jason and I decided to make our favorite hashtag into an apparel line! We are starting small with some always available shirts, tanks, and hoodies but will be expanding to some special limited edition, bigger, and better things soon. Grab a shirt and show off your well fueled self!

Keep up with the Facebook page for more info, updates, and ridiculous memes!

Strongma’am

My coach, Jason Struck, and I noticed that in the world of the internetz, there seemed to be a lack of information about strongman for women. There wasn’t much out there about how to get into the sport, how to train for the sport, and  more female-specific issues so, we decided to take action. We created the Strongma’am page in an effort to create an educational community for women in the sport of Strongman. We will be putting out tutorial videos, FAQ/discussion type vidoes, highlighting articles, and more as the community begins to grow. We are always looking for topics to cover so please let us know if you have anything you’d like to see!

 Here is our first FAQ/discussion video, or as we call it, our “Fireside Chat” about how to find your first strongman contest, especially if you’re a novice female competitor, and what to do after you send in that entry form.

Again, check out the Facebook page for more videos and such!
