Thanks! It was definitely way better than my first comp because I could actually be competitive in the weight class (they combined novice lightweight and heavyweight at my first). It was a really fun show!

  • Holy shit that was hard. Lots of on the fly decisions to keep me in the fight. Pretty fun, pretty draining, and it was some of the most fun I’ve had in a while training
  • Good pump. The giant set format is cool. My conditioning is not where I thought but it will get better
  • Might be some changes in programming because another lightweight competitor (who’s pretty strong) offered to show me stuff and train with me. BASP will always be here, that opportunity may not be. Be Like Water. We will see what happens

Just caught up with the competition writeup. That looked like a lot of fun.

350lbs Yoke
155lbs Farmers

Giant set 1: 90 sec rest
4 Burpee Broad Jump
13in DL: 265x10, 310x8, 350xMISS
1 min Long Lever Plank: 3
1 min 150lb sandbag hold: 3

20 sec rest
40 sec row: Left (av. 20 reps @ 55lbs)
1 min plank

12 roundsx20 sec rest: Zercher squat 120x3


  • Strongman Conditioning took it out of me for the 13in DL. I probably need to lower training max. I will
  • Figured out what I did wrong on this day. I thought I used 390 as the max but I used the comp pull of 440 as the max. 310 should have been the top set. Running a TM of 90% for lower body main lifts.



Time: 52:10

Warm up:
Walk the dogs
Reverse Hypers

GS1: 90 sec rest: 3 rounds
Power Row: 155x10, 185x8, 205x6

Assistance: 4 rounds: 90 sec rest
Seated Pin Press (nose level): 80x10

Strongman Conditioning:
At the top of Every Minute:
5 Burpees
Strict Log Press (85lbs) until 50 reps
Completed: 15 burpees and 15 log presses (DNF)
I was smoked


  • What the actual fuck is that conditioning. My triceps were smoked and I was upset I couldn’t finish it but after 13 reps of log, I knew the end was near
  • The pin press is probably what I need
  • Rows were from the floor without a belt or straps. Feels good for a power movement. Not necessarily a back stimulus
  • Grades are all B’s heading into finals. I’ll take it because classes were harder and life was busier. Still room for improvement

Welcome to strongman. LMAO

  • Really feeling beat up and was looking for a reason not to lift. I have time tomorrow so I moved the session from today

Hey man, whenever I start having aches and pains usually a few days off completely does me good. I know how hard it is to take days off

Could use the next few days to recover and load up on that good ass thanksgiving food and left overs haha

@T3hPwnisher I got a copy of purposeful primitive today. Holy crap, I have never spent the whole day reading (except today) but this is hands down one of my favorite things I have ever read on training.


Hell yeah dude! It was the same when I first read it. Can’t put it down. Glad you are enjoying it.

  • Could have gone heavier on the rows
  • Overall good day
  • Stretching hip flexors helped speed. Stolen from Josh Bryant.
  • Had a misload on 220x10. Pulled it and realized I had loaded 10lbs on the left side instead of 15. Didn’t feel the need to repeat the set and moved on with my life.

12-1 SB over shoulder (100b)


  • I’m loving the challenge of this program style. I find something new about myself and my ability to flip the switch and lock in during the working set is getting amazing
  • Could have done like maybe 2 more on the top set of press but conditioning is the limiting factor. It’s improving quickly though

It’s heartbreaking I’m out of sticker space on my training notebook. This kinda serves as a space where I can see who and what influences my training. Some stickers from friends, one from the strongman gym, and a couple from bells of steel. Thought it was interesting to log in case I lose the notebook
