Hey guys, so I’m getting back into strongman this year and I know pretty much what I want to do except one thing.
It’s gonna be a 4 day split basically it looks like this;
Week 1 higher reps-8-12
Week 2 medium 4-8
Week 3 heavier 1-3
Upper-press focus with back work
Lower-deadlift focus with some squat work (front and back)
Throws and jumps
Stones or sandbags then a basic full body session
Weighted vest walking
So my question is, one week I’ll do say thick bar clean and presses and the next will be with the log. E.g one week will be certain movements then the next will be different exercises and events but similar in execution. Going by my lighter to heavier three week period should I alternate each week which means a cycle would finish after 6 weeks or should I do a three week cycle then do the next group for another three week cycle? Which would be more beneficial long term?
Sorry it’s a bit long winded.
