hey joe...strongman question for you


#1

I train for and compete in strongman. I was wondering how you would set up a routine for someone who does so while having a separate day for strongman events

thanks in advance


#2

Here is a routine that Joe posted on his site:

MONDAY
A. Deadlift variation - 5-8 sets, 1-3 reps
B. Overhead press variation - 4-5 sets, 6-12 reps
C. Row variation - 3-4 sets, 15-20 reps
D. Heavy weighted abs (4 sets of 6-10 reps)

WEDNESDAY
A. Bottom-position squat in power rack - 4-7 sets, 1-3 reps
B. Reverse Hyperextensions or weighted hyperextensions - 4 sets of 15 reps
C. Towel chin-ups - 3 sets as many as possible
D. Abs

FRIDAY
A. Hang clean & press - 3-6 sets, 3-5 reps
B. Thick bar bench press - 3-5 sets, 3-5 reps
C. Standing thick bar curls - 5 sets of 5 reps
D. Thick bar hold (overhand grip) - 3 sets of 60 seconds (as heavy as possible)

Joe - I would be interested in knowing how you build GGP/endurance for strongman.
