Well Paul not every meet can be a good one. Kainen put up 303 easily but missed 330. He recently put up 335 in the basement. So he was disappointed.

4/30
1a. Bench + micro mini bands barx20 95x10 135x5 185x5 210x5 245x5 275x7 210x3x8
1b. Baby cambered bar rows barx15 135x10 185x5 225x5 275x2x5 225x4x5

One of my favorite workouts. A big push and pull done together.


#1084

He competed, tried, and hopefully learned from the experience. That’s what matters.


#1085

Tru Dat , when we met I didn’t exacly have a “great”( I’m being kind to my fragile ego) day…so I feel his pain and disappointment. But he has many meets ahead of him and I am sure he will rock many stellar performances!

Deleted my last post by accident. So if you didn’t read it thanks Harry and Paul.

5/6

  1. 17’’ box cambered bar squat barx10 135,175,225,260,300x5 340x10 360,380,400x1 260x3x5
  2. 17’’ box cambered bar GM-squat 175x2x5 225x3x5

I think I did the good morning squat correctly this time. At least it felt right. And I ditched the belt today to work on my core (I hate that word).

5/8
1a. Bench barx20 95x8 135,165,185,225,250,275,290x5 320x8 380x1
1b. Small cambered bar rows 10 sets
2a. MP 155x3x10
2b. Band pull aparts and face pulls 3 sets

I benched with my son Kainen and he wasn’t using bands so I guess neither was I. He was benching too heavy too often. I’ve got him to back off and follow a 5/3/1 type rep scheme. He bench 250x10 fairly easy tonight.


#1090

As I have learned, there is nothing better than father-son workouts. Just as long as mine remembers I’m still bigger, stronger and meaner.


#1091

Somehow I don’t picture you being mean. Strong yes.

5/10
Deadlifts 145,185,225,275,315,365,405x5
Then outside for a bunch of stone lifts.
Now I’m dirty and tired.


#1092

Doing stone lifts after 405 x 5 = adequate
Tired and dirty = good


#1093

Thanks Harry.

1a. MP barx15 95,115,135,150x5 170x3 190x10 150x behind neck x12
1b. Chin ups x 8 reps

I was still feeling beat up from lifting stones the other night. So kept it fairly short and sweet today.

#1095

Looks like some strong, strong work my friend !

Got outside and carried the smaller atlas stones. Carrying needs to become a regular part of my workouts.


#1098

Any plans on trying a strongman contest?


#1099

Crippler, no plans for a strongman competition. Just keep lifting and carrying stuff in my backyard.

5/21

  1. Deadlift 135,185,225,275,315x3 335x5 385x3 430x5

Got outside and lifted some stones and did some zercher carries with the cambered bar.


#1100

That kind of stuff is going to make you strong for sure.


#1101

Crippler, I sure hope you’re right.
