Untamed Strength's Strongest Novice


Sacramento, CA

This is an opportunity to try your calloused hand at competing in a Strongman competition!

This competition is for first-timers: anyone who has never competed in a sanctioned strongman competition. You can still compete if you have competed in a Novice show but failed to podium (1st-3rd). If you have won 1st-3rd in a Novice show, this show is not for you. 

Please follow @untamedstrength on Instagram for updates.

All competitors will weigh in on the day of the competition. Weigh-ins will be held between 7am-8:30am on competition day. Rules will be announce at 8:45am. Competition starts at 9am.

If there are fewer than 3 competitors in a weight class, weight classes will be combined. 


Event #1 - Madewell Deadlift for Reps: Competitors will deadlift a barbell with Madewell Attachments. Max reps in 60 seconds. Touch and Go reps are allowed. Competitor must wait for a "DOWN" command. Wrist Straps and belt are allowed. Deadlift suit is not allowed. Sumo stance is not allowed. 

Event #2 - Barbell Clean & Press (max attempt): Competitors will clean & overhead press a barbell for a 1 rep maximum lift. The posted weights are the starting weights. The bar will increase by 20 lbs per attempt for men, 10 lbs per attempt for women. Each competitor will have 3 attempts to clean & press as much weight as possible. You will have 30 secs to complete each attempt. You can use your 3 attempts whenever you'd like. You can skip any weight. You will be credited with your highest successful completed attempt. If you fail to complete a weight in 30 seconds, you are out of the rotation. Use your attempts wisely. Any Clean style is allowed - continental, power, olympic, etc. Any pressing style is allowed: strict, push press, power jerk, split jerk. Competitor must wait for a "DOWN" command. Belt, elbow/knee sleeves, wrist wraps allowed. 

Event #3 - Farmer's Carry for Max Distance: Competitors will carry farmer's handles as far as possible, no time limit. The course will be 80-100' down & back until failure. Once the handles drop, distance will be measured. Hook Grip is not allowed. Straps are not allowed. Belt is allowed. 

Event #4 - Loading Medley: Each competitor will carry and/or load 3 implements. The first implement will be a sandbag, carried 40' and loaded over a bar. Competitor will sprint back to the 2nd implement, a keg, and carry it 20' before loading it over the same bar. Competitor will sprint to the 3rd implement, an atlas stone, and load it over a bar (no carry) for as many reps as possible in the time remaining. 60 sec time limit. Belt is allowed, no tacky.
