quick update on my training for the World’s events:
I’ve gotten to 2 reps on the axle wagon wheel deadlift at 600 lbs. huge progress there, very happy with where I am with 4 weeks of training left to go.
I hit a crazy fast 270 log press this week, and BARELY missed 290. 280 should definitely be there on competition day, at the least. Feeling good about this event too.
My sandbag throws are going great. Plenty of height with the prescribed weights. A little inconsistent on my throwing line, but I think it will be good enough because I’m getting more height than I need. Gives me room for error.
I’ve picked up 315 per hand with farmers handles, and walked 3 steps. That’s my best effort. The pick isn’t too bad, but I just can’t walk with it. I’ll do what I can on this event, but expecting a last place finish. Anything better than last will be a win in my book, lol.
And finally, power stairs. I feel good about this event, but I really don’t have any way to compare myself to others on this. I’ve done 8 reps quickly with 310 no problem, and 6 reps with 360. Best I’ve done with 400 is 3 reps, but I could’ve gotten 4. Sooooo yea. I think if I can get through the first 2 weights and at least halfway through the 400 on comp day, that will be pretty good. I don’t see many people finishing that event. I’d like to, but not overly optimistic. It’s a tough event, and I think it’s set up for people to fail, lol.
