Crazy awesome weekend! Had the pleasure of meeting a personal hero @shawstrength and have him be my judge for the axle deadlifts. And compete next to some of the most motivating people I’ve ever met. Til next year @crownmountainstrongman . More to follow. #inzerbelt #primalelite #beargrips #gymreapers #rehband #powerbelly

Well there it is boys and girls, Don Garbagio pulls off a massive win! Finally, however a little sloppy on the lock out, hit my goal of 300lbs axle push press. Got 301lbs! Just under 3 weeks out from my next comp with @strongmancorporation at @crownmountainstrongman and feeling pretty happy with myself even after dropping an axle on my quad. And feeling a lot better about the 14” axle deadlifts. #inzerbelt #primalelite #beargrips #gymreapers #rehband #powerbelly

Had a real “blast” on deadlifts yesterday! I always tell myself to stop doing touch and goes, and finally I committed to it. #inzerbelt #primalelite #beargrips #gymreapers #rehband #powerbelly

He’s back again! And this time Don Garbagio sets an axle press PR! Then immediately loses balance and trips while trying to slam the weights down to look cool hahaha! Happy with the way this 281lbs axle push press went. Everyday chipping away, just that much closer to a 300lbs axle overhead! Super excited. #inzerbelt #primalelite #beargrips #gymreapers #rehband #powerbelly

Should have done a test run for the end, circus dumbbell was cut off at lock out. Oh well. Finished off the week with a small, heavy overhead medley for “events” training. Log and axle were 250lbs. Felt pretty decent after the workout. Happy with the speed. #inzerbelt #primalelite #beargrips #gymreapers #rehband #powerbelly

It’s the return of everyone’s favorite natty lifter, Don Garbagio. Why did I stop doing these? Trying to get back into oly shape, build up that muscle memory. It’s far shot from my old 300lbs max, but to be fair it’s been like 4 months. All in all, it was fun and I miss doing them. I will get it again. #buffalobarbell117 #usstrongman #inzerbelt #primalelite #rehband #beargrips #powerbelly #olylulah

GRIP DAY! hittin PR’s on the reg. Finally able to hold on to 455. I don’t have tires to pull with so pulled from boxes. Tried out the power stairs event. Wish they were a bit bigger. #trainingtobeatmartinslicis @martinslicis . Ha! In my dreams. #usstrongman #buffalobarbell117 #inzerbelt #primalelite #rehband #beargrips #teamredchucks

Well as it turns out buying leather atlas stone sleeves are pretty expensive, around $130. I dabble in some leather work, figured I’d give it try and make my own. Let me tell you, fantastic idea. These bad boys dubbed the “Conan” stone sleeves performed perfectly. Videos to follow. #buffaloleathercrafts #buffalobarbell117 #conanstonesleeves #usstrongman

Come to Colorado they said. It will be great they said. The weather is awesome they said. Well yeah other than the hail storms lol.

Placed 3rd in overall novice. Few slip ups today. Turns out I need to slow down and focus on the lifts lol. But had a blast! This sport definitely fits me. The most supportive competitors ever. Smoked the first event and got 1st. Got 3rd in the second. Tied for 2nd in the third. And got 3rd in the final atlas stones. Lots of work to be done, but now I know my strength and weaknesses. Looking forward to the next one already. #officiallyastrongman #inzerbelt #beargrips #gymreapers #rehband #primalelite #powerbelly #buffalobarbell117strongman

Here’s a little sneak peak to strongman comp I’ve been training for. I finally committed a week out haha. Thankfully I decided to invest in tacky and boy did it make a huge difference on the stones. June 9th people, stay tuned. #inzerbelt #beargrips #gymreapers #primalelite #rehband #powerbelly

Back to the continental clean for the heavy axle presses. Felt decent although it’s been awhile. First time doing block pulls and managed to hit my goal of 550lbs. Now just to transfer that to off the ground and I’ll be happy. #inzerbelt #primalelite #powerbelly #gymreapers #beargrips #trainingforastrongmancomp #weakmustache
