5/3/1 Strongman Log


#1

I'm going to use the 5/3/1 Program and apply to strongman training.
For first training cycle this will be routine:
DAY 1 DEADLIFT (max 565)
Cleans
Unilateral Leg press
Calves
Abs
DAY 2 BENCH (max 375)
T-Bar Rows
Dips
Pullups
Triceps
DAY 3 ATG BACK SQUAT (max 375)
Axe Cleans
Pin Pulls
Hamstrings
Abs
DAY 4 LOG CLEAN & JERK (max 290)
DB Incline Press
Kroc Rows
Shrugs
Biceps
DAY 5 EVENT TRAINING

I'm planning on doing a meet Oct 10, as a LW (231). Monday morning I weighed 268 so I will definitely be including conditioning training for weight loss. I'm using Starnes carb cycling for my diet.

Will have to miss Fresno comp, going to different comp in Chico, CA instead. This is going to be a bench press, deadlift, clean & jerk, and snatch meet. This is the first kind like that I have seen held and since I wanted an excuse to really start focusing my Oly lifts again this is perfect.
