How has CrossFit helped you prepare for your [Strongman] competitions?:
It's such a mental game and that mental toughness really transfers over to my Strongman training. Honestly, though, it's not the WODs that helped me most at my last competition, it was the CFV community. There were over a dozen CFV athletes who trekked up damn near the Bronx in arctic temperatures to come see Maillard and myself compete. In the max reps deadlift event, when I blacked out and went to one knee, it was voices from CFV that made me stand up and get that 28th rep @ 315lbs. It was one of those moments that made me realize just how much bigger CrossFit is than just us as athletes. It was really touching.
