As I don’t get a chance to talk to many of you, I thought I’d document some of the stuff I’m working on at HSBNE as I often get asked about all the weird stuff I’m working on.
As you might know, I own a gym down in Rocklea. A big focus of my business is running strongman events and competitions, and this year again I am running the 2019 Australian Strongman Alliance Nationals. Last year was a pretty awesome event, and we had a number of competitors use that competition to qualify for some of the biggest events around the world - Strongman Champions League (World’s Strongest Man but for lighter competitors) in India, the Official Strongman Games in North Carolina and the USS Strongman Pro Women’s World Championships in Tennessee.
Because I’m a glutton for punishment, as well as running all these competitions I also build all of the equipment for them. This is for two reasons:
- Custom built strongman gear is hard to get. There’s only one place in Melbourne who makes it.
- Custom build strongman gear is expensive. Last years competition alone would have cost me over $10000 in equipment.
I’ll start with some of the stuff I made for last year, and as I knock stuff up for this year I’ll post it in here too
