T Nation

Garbage Can Strong....The Never Ending Journey for Strength

Whelp…I’m back on T Nation from probably a 6 year hiatus. I believe I’ve been a member since 2008, plenty of past logs in ye olde over 35 section. Still plugging away…you wont get anyone more stubborn than me.

Migrated to Strongman training from over 10 years competing in powerlifting. Currently not prepping for any comps and using a Jailhouse strong template in the off-season. Just finished a charity event in the past week. Looking forward to perusing all the logs on here as I did in the past. So much has changed on this site yet so much has stayed the same.

Here are some vids that show my training style. Gonna be 45 in December…yikes :upside_down_face:


Welcome back you sexy bastard!


Thanks brother !

Nice zerchers, no elbow sleeves or pads either!

Have you run Jailhouse style training before? I ran 5/3/1 Bigger Yoke variant back in July which included a lot more upper back and neck work and I enjoyed it. I do have the Jailhouse Strong ebook and it is in the long list of programs I’d like to give a run at some point.

Thanks man! I found doing zerchers w/o sleeves is easier as it sits in the crook of my arms securely.

I’m actually on week 2 of the of the gas station ready strongman training program off of the tactical strongman ebook

I love jailhouse strong programming it suits me well, love the upper back and neck training. I tend to follow the training jail house strong athlete Tom haviland a lot


Fucking animal
