hey guys, a little background info, i’ve been lifiting weights for sports and what not intermiddetly for the last few years, but only the last 6 or so months have i been serious about getting strong, i’ve put up semi-respectable numbers, 300+bench, 350+ squat, and nearly pulling 500, at 18 yrs. old… though, decidedly less impressive when taking into consideration the fact that i’m 6’5, 245ish,
anyway, as much as i love powerlifting, i am a very competitive individual (college basketball player)… and, i’m not trying to whine… just saying, i can’t forsee myself every being outstanding at powerlifiting (1500 total raw would be my goal…and that’s hardly world class)…
sooooo basically, i want to start to try to implement morestrongman training in hopes of being competitive 1 day, i currently squat mon, bench wed. and pull on fri. (btw, not trying to cop out, but, my knees are awful, and this height, all the tendonitis etc. i’ve had makes it incredibly hard to squat, i managed 335x4today, but… can hardly walk…
anyway, enough off topic, are there some basic strongman things i can do without overly compromising my powerlifting, any kinda places to point me in the right direction would be awesome.
part. b… my training partner just got a new job, and his schedule and mine are such that, the only time we can now train some days is early in the morning,
so, for wednesday, heavy bench day, we’ll be lifiting @ around 7ish am (i’m used to lifting @ around 7pm) are there any tips people cangive for not having that workout suck? (i’m going to be trying to go to bed earlier, and am thinking about caffeine/energy drinks, though i don’t usually use them, but… am not really a morning person,
any tips on this would also be appreciated, sorry for the long story/ gross post guys, and hopefully i can get some feedback, thanks
