3 sets 5 reps

ran out of time to do anything else.


Haven't been able to post all of my lifts, always forget so here goes all of them:

Tons of strongman event training, I'm now able to load a 170lb rock onto a 45' platform 8 times in 60 seconds.
Grip is still a huge factor and I'm going into overtime with all of the extra training and recovery.

GPP/Strongman Day

Lots of sledgehammer work, used the sledgehammer as a mace, 4X10 Chop Circuit from synergy athletics.


My knee is killing me and it hurts to even walk on it. PT recommended to take two week deload for the lower body. Doing CW's program with 50 pullups and 100 pushups per day, 6 days per week, 2 weeks.


My knee feels much better, but I'm going to give it another week.


Running Dave Tate's Bench Press Program Monday and Fridays.

Wednesday: 5 X 3 for powercleans at 185 then one set of three at 205
5 Natural GHR + 20 second hold on ab wheel => Three sets
10 Lunges each leg => 3 sets


Saturday Strongman day:

Width of the field keg runs X 6
Keg Loads to a 52'' level X 50


Nice weights on your first meet man! Don't worry you'll get total on your next meet, at least now you know where your weak points are at and what to work on.
