Figured you guys would be the perfect people to ask this question.
So my log arrives by Tuesday and I think for the next few months I want start having a “strongman saturday” to start to get into the movements and start my process of getting into strongman (sorry @robstein @JMaier31 BBing will have to wait a while). I have the Iron Warrior gym thats about 45 minutes from me that has all the implements, but I want to get into a groove for a few months before committing to going to that gym every Saturday.
I’ll have a log, sandbag, rope, and I can make my own farmers walk handles in the mean time.
How should I structure my training? I think a 4 day split with an event day would be too much for my body. I think I’d prefer to do something like this:
Monday - Lift (Back Squat, Strict BB Press, Assistance)
Tuesday - Condition
Wednesday - Lift (Deadlift, Bench Press, Assistance)
Thursday - Condition
Friday - Lift (Clean, Front Squat, Assistance)
Saturday - Events (Log Press, Farmers Walk, Sandbag shit)
Sunday - Recover
Should I use the log on events day or should I make that my main press on one of the lifting days? Or should I just follow a regular full body program and just do the events on Saturday? Wouldn’t pressing (even for volume) on Friday affect my log press on Saturday?
I want to get the most out of a strongman Saturday so curious how you would handle it. Any information would be appreciated!
There is an event in June that has deadlift for reps, max log press, and some other stuff I can’t remember right now.
