About Sam: Favorite event: Farmers walk because I am good at it and stones because I think that stones, along with the tire, signify strongman…… Best event: Super yoke…… Advice to beginners on getting into strongman: Don’t just work on the stuff you like. Fix your weaknesses. The key is to be consistent……. More from Sam: Do it for the fun…… Favorite type of music….I have fairly broad tastes but I am a metalhead at heart. …. Favorite Bands…Primus, Pantera, Garbage, Nora Jones, A Perfect Circle, Chris Cornell, Mazzy Star, Ice Cube, Manson. Last book you read…”From the Gut” by GE CEO Jack Welsch…. If you are on an deserted island, what food, drink, compact disc and magazine/book would you want?…Pizza, Water, Pantera-Vulgar Display of Power, Maxim Magazine…. People would NEVER guess this about you…I can do the splits and I can ride no handed wheelies on a mountain bike….. Most impressive feat you’ve ever seen…Karl Gillingham on the stones at the Blarney Bash. 5 stones, 275 to 400 to pro hieghts in 22 seconds.
