Am looking for some help here.
My biggest weakness in strongman is my speed. I can walk with an 1100lb yoke for 20’, do 300fw 80 no problem. But, i will be the slowest guy around. Well…maybe not the slowest but too slow anyways.
Along with that…and maybe pointing to the problem, my deadlift sucks. I can pull 765-800ish from 18. But 525 from the floor is about my max right now. I get stuck right at the floor if i miss a deadlift. I don’t ever train at 18" but tried it the other day, and got 765, with maybe room to get 800 or so.
I can run fast, with out weights, don’t have any times or anything, but seldom do a lose a short distance running race. But, add weight and i slow down too much.
Any ideas on what to work on? Is this an overall leg strength problem?
Thanks for your time!
