@losthog Thanks man! This has been a great show both years I’ve done it. One of the fastest and smoothest I’ve ever been a part of.
@isdatnutty Thanks dude! I’m starting to develop a collection of competitors dwarfing me in photos, haha. Kaz is still awesome. This isn’t going to change much about my training, mainly because my training changes based off the competition I’m training for. Biggest thing I’ve taken is to strike a balance between carrying and loading. With my next one coming up, I’m going to spend a LOT of time on the stones. Best of luck in your first comp!
@mortdk Appreciate you reading through it all dude. And no kidding necessary; Kaz is still huge at 64. I’m honestly starting to think he’s not actually human, haha.
@Koestrizer Thanks dude! Always great to keep spreading the strongman presence and love here.
@mr.v3lv3t It was the exact sorta competition I needed. Old school, and lots of brute strength. Chalk was allowed on the stones. I’m not sure how much it helped, but I used some on my hands and forearms. The stones were jagged enough that slipping wasn’t an issue.
@littlelee Thank you!
Log viper and press away
Band Pull aparts
Axle continental and press away 123
Axle rows 123
Reverse hyper 180
Notes: First one back after competing, took it easy. Hands are still a little torn up, so was a touch shy on the log cleans. Focused on getting it high on the chest, because that fell apart at the competition. Shoulders and right tricep are a little achy. Just got some blood flowing, but excited about this training cycle.
Woke up at 194.2. Going to see if I can get this down to 190 for Murph/fitness test, and then ride it back up again.
