I’m an amateur strongman with a couple contests under my belt. I competed a couple weeks ago at the Lift for Autism in the 165 weight class and am currently training for NY Strong-est on July 30th where I’ll be competing in the 181 class. I train using Lily’s Cube template with events done on deadlift day. I have a poverty press so it needs a lot more attention than Thigpen’s template gives.
Axle form the rack: 8s from 40 to 120, 10 pound increases
Weighted ring chins: 5x5 +25
Strict press: 11, 5, 3 @ 95
Yates row: 3x12 @ 145
Close grip floor press: 10@135, 10@145, 8@135
Really fat DB hammer curl: 3x15 @ 15
There wasn’t anything really remarkable about the day. I could have ramped faster on the axle but I haven’t done it for more than triples in a couple months so went slow.
