Starting anew yet again. Since very few people here know who I am, I’ve been training for about 5 years and spent the latter 2 years training strongman and competing in the sport as a <231 lightweight. I’ve competed twice, and placed 5th in 14’ NC’s Strongest Man. After that, I decided I wanted to dedicate the year of 2014 to qualifying for NAS nationals, but the plans failed to come to fruition due to a pretty nasty injury in late March.
My goals in this next chapter of my training are to actually become statically strong(er). To improve upon my weaknesses from a powerlifting perspective. Unsure about doing a meet, but who knows. I am open to anything.
I’m 20 years old. ~225-235 depending on diet, and 5’8".
Deadlift: 500x8, 635x1 from 3" blocks. 500x4 conv.
Bench: 385x1, 315x9, 425x1 slingshot
Strict Overhead: 280x1, 275x2
Push Jerk: 315x4, 340x1
Front Squat: 425x1
Back Squat: 500x1
Most of these lifts are done out of the blue, because of my training style, I infrequently bench pressed and back squatted, etc. Going to change that now. I want a 600+ deadlift, 400+ bench, and 500+ squat. All modest goals to happen in the foreseeable future.
Blah blah blah. 2 weeks off I’m back.
Pre-workout stretching, rolling, band flossing, etc.
185x8x3 (8 sets of 3 reps) Actually working on making these feel comfortable. They felt acceptable, but far from ideal.
Bulg. split squats (done only with my right leg due to that being quite lagged from the injury)
Lying Banded Hamstring Curls (per leg)
x8 (green band in half)
x12,x12,x12(blue band in half)
