So fresh from the 5th place last time I’m bang on for my next show. I have entered Ingatstones strongest man. As a novice. The events are:
Viking press - weight TBC
Car Dead lift - 230kg side handles
Bag throw over bar - 14/16/18/20kg
Conans Wheel - 180kg
Fingers or Hercules hold TBC
My first thoughts on see this were - what great events. I’m so keen to have a go. I’ve done Viking press and finger before - but the rest are new. I have access to the equipment so I will start using it.
Training at the moment is very generic. There were a few items we (coach and I) wanted to sort out. We have brought up my log (the programme was written before I entered the show) and my dead lift. I’d now say I’d pull a 500lb (227kg). I pulled a 230kg from blocks 3 times recently.
I’ll update this weekly. “normally” at the weekend.
This weeks training - pretty standard. ME log was good. Managed 100kg 2x3. And block pulls 3x230kg. My upper body power feels better.
I have KB swings tonight. And DE squats. Lots of power work. That should be handy for the throws…
The event I’m most looking foward to is the wheel. I’m going to aim to keep going for the whole time. 0 put downs.
