DINO GYM CHALLENGE PRESENTS THE -
“Herman Goerner Deadlift Medley”
Every year I like to change up the theme of the Dino Gym Challenge to give it variety. I have honored several of my favorite Old Time Strongmen in the past by hosting meets in their memory, ie Arthur Saxon and Warren Lincoln Travis. This year the meet will honor the great German lifter and strongman – Herman Goerner. He was an outstanding deadlifter in many pulling disciplines, so this meet will feature an entire meet of various deadlift movements. It ought to provide for a very challenging meet.
I encourage prior meet registration, or at least let me know if you plan to attend ahead of time so I can prepare accordingly. The meet will be held in the Dino Gym on the main platform.
Deadlift – Fulton Bar, Ciavattone Grip
Deadlift – One Arm
Deadlift – No Thumbs, Overhand Grip
Deadlift – Ciavattone Grip
Deadlift – Heels Together
