Where does America’s Strongest Man hold a competition to find America’s Strongest Cop? Anywhere he wants.
America’s Strongest Cop is a nationwide competition that tests the physical strength, speed and stamina of officers in a series of regional challenges, culminating in a finals event in New York City where America’s Strongest Cop will be crowned. Open to all 900,000-plus full-time law enforcement officers in the United States, competitors who register for America’s Strongest Cop at www.AmericasStrongestCop.com will receive an instructional DVD produced by Loma introducing the “D-E-T” System; a revolutionary program of diet, exercise and time management developed by three-time America’s Strongest Man and Naugatuck, Connecticut patrolman Derek Poundstone.
In the video, Poundstone is joined by Muscle & Fitness Senior Science Editor Jim Stoppani to present a diet program and time-management strategy designed for a high-performance lifestyle. Poundstone and co-host Sara Hoots, herself a fitness competitor, also enlist the aid of Connecticut State Police officer Luis Rosa and NYPD officers Teresa and Michelle Frizziola to demonstrate the eight-week America’s Strongest Cop workout.
As a Global Ambassador for Special Olympics, joining other Global Ambassadors such as Nelson Mandela, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bono and Jon Bon Jovi, Poundstone will also use the America’s Strongest Cop platform to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics. An entrance fee of ten dollars from each participant will support the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR), Special Olympics’ single largest grassroots fundraiser. Community-based fundraising initiatives will also take place at each regional event.
