I’m hoping to compete in Strongman sometime next summer and I decided to make a log to track my progress as well as to trade training tips/ideas. I know I have a lot to learn and it would be awesome to get some advice as I progress in my training.
I’m using the cube method for strongman template, but with 5/3/1 strict press added on to my events day.
I’m 19 yrs old, 5’10" and 175 pounds. I’m trying to steadily gain weight.
I haven’t tested a true max, but here are some numbers that I’ve worked up to in the past.
Deadlift: 400 lbs
18" deadlift: 420 lbs
Squat: 290 lbs
Front squat: 205 lbs
Push Press: 170 lbs
All of my strongman implements for now will have to be homemade. I currently have a yoke that is made out of metal pipes and worked well, but requires a little more stabilizing that a standard one would. I can also kinda use it for zercher carries and as a conan’s wheel, but it’s a little higher than I would like. I’m planning on making farmer’s walk handles pretty soon and also some atlas stones.
Tomorrow is squat day!
