Been training for amateur strongman since January, have recently had to give up all contact sports (rugby for 13 years) and have always used the Strongman as an accessory to my gym work for Rugby.
I have long limbs and a short wide torso so my DL is pretty solid, been training it once a week since January with great progress. OHP has recently been getting better but still needs work. My squat is my real weakness.
As my gym whilst at Uni doesn’t have strongman equipment I’m building foundational strength to carry over into my events training in the holidays. Does anyone have any tips on getting squats up for people with long legs? My real power seems to be the transfer of power from the glute/hammies into the hip drive/quads, any tips would be greatly appreciated
DL: 450 for 3 reps
OHP: 225 for 3 reps
Box squat: 331 + 56lbs chains for 1
Front squat (ass to grass): 236 for 3
