Then had a KB swing workshop at the gym, well at a park. Focused on deep swings, getting full range of motion. Also did some highland games style throws, fun stuff, but after 2 hours of it, Im trashed.
I am not a HUGE believer in maxing out every single lift in a week. Especially 2 weeks in a row. There is so much room for fatigue to be carried over from one day/lift to another. That and how often do you typically train? Do you squat, deadlift and OH press weekly? Anyways, awesome numbers though! Its so cool you are training for strongman! I am looking into doing that for chicks next time there is an event around the Dallas area! Ill be following your log!
I got out of powerlifting for a few months, so Im trying to find my groove again, but yes I usually do some sort of max/dynamic stuff on squat, ohp/bench and deadlift every week. I train 4-5 times a week. Im a lucky one and recover very quickly, I think it mostly has to do with my body type and age (21).
I checked out you're log, you're a beast! Thats awesome you're a female raw powerlifter. I work at a physical culture gym in California and at least 60% of our members are raw powerlifting women. Strongman stuff is just plain fun, Im lucky enough to have atlas stones and other strongman equipment at my gym, never a dull moment with strongman training.
Im glad you'll be following and I will definitely be following your log!
