Hey Man, I'm set up in Cambridge now and will be starting to train for the events basically every Sunday. I've got FW implements, a 10" log, a harness, 100ft of rope, and will be getting some stones, sandbags, and some big tires really soon.

If you want to hook up to train shoot me an email @ lukeskaarup@hotmail.com

I hate to be the guy that has to say this, but I want to put it out there.

Peter takes in anyone that ever wants to come and train. And if you've ever been to Pete's you know it's more than Just a place to train. He has chalk,tacky, shit to clean up with, blue heat, all the equipment you could ever want, cold water bottles in the fridge, a warm fire in the winter and he lets us use his pool and hot tub.

He spends huge amounts of money on all this stuff. He's put in place a very small, $4.00 fee that you pay into the jar when you come to train. He puts that money toward the good stuff that we use every Saturday. If you come to train (especially on a regular basis) PAY THE FOUR FUCKING DOLLARS.

If you don't have 4 bucks to spend on a day of training??
(Believe me Pete ain't making any profits by having a pay jar)

I sayin' this because Pete's too nice of a guy to say it.

We just put in a new floor in the garage and I know Pete forked out over $500.00 for cement.

It's easy to forget this so I thought it needed to be posted.

And if you've got heat towards me over this, send me a PM.

1. 8" Metal Log + 465lbs of olympic weights
2. FW handles
3. 850lbs Goodyear tire 23.5. This is a good one to practice on, the pic is a little tough and it is a good weight.
4. 336lb Hussafel Stone
5. Atlas Stones- 230 (16"), 275 (16"), 310 (19"), and 345 (20"). I also have platforms to 49", 56" and 60".
6. 230lbs Keg for pressing or carrying
7. Iron Mind Harness, 110ft of 1 1/2" rope, + tow cable...just need a big truck.
8. Plenty of field stones

If you're interested in training send me a PM or an email at lukeskaarup@hotmail.com. I'll be training hard until after the Animal Strongman Final the first week of October.

I'm wanting to plan a training day with my implements at some point. Stones (various) log, tires, sleds, keg, farmers walks, sandbags, ROLLING THUNDER,
I have some stuff at at Ancaster Phoenix Fitness where am doing most of my own training now.
(Log bar, APOLLON AXLE, Kettlebells)

Right now it's kind of a casual thing. So whenever. Eventually I'm
planning to revamp the garage and get an addition to it to put what I need
in there to make it a full gym and then I'll ask a $5 - 10 donation each
time just to pay things off.
I won't be making anything off that at first just paying for my equipment.

We MadDogs are still out in Orleans training twice a week. Week days( weather permitting damn rain) we have been training down at Petrie Island. Its a lot of fun and we make a family evening out of it, so any who come out, remember to keep things PG13. WE usually work at the beach with KB tossing, sled drags, overhead carries, potentially yoke carries. I also have our wicked set of super swamper bumper plates for 18" deads. Check us out, we keep it fun.
