#4095

Wednesday

Comp weight. Not too heavy. Awesome in my 13mm Cerberus Infinity Lever

Plank
2 minute pr
1 minute 10kg

#4097

did u clock?


#4098

About 40 seconds, I’m a big fan of holds and paused reps etc


#4099

Have you tried barbell waiter’s carries? Moving while holding overhead is a pretty awesome core workout.


#4100

I’ve done them with a kettlebell a few times for some light activation, Next push press session I have Holds Programmed again (Next friday, I have 2 press sessions next week) Il try them then.


#4101

If you can do a nice long hold at 60 Kg, I’d start with the bar for a warm-up set, then jump to 40 Kg, then 60 depending how 40 feels. Of course, I’m old, so I need a lot more warm-up than you youngsters. :slight_smile:


#4102

It depends on how i feel really, Some days if I feel utter garbage Il do lots of warmup sets and that helps and others just a couple


#4103

You’re not from Australia. You’re a typical Texan.


#4104

I’m guessing it’s alot harder to hold once you’re moving with it.


#4105

Texas is basically American Australia


#4106

Australia is Oceanic Texas.


#4107

Australia and Texas are really just spicy, dry Germany


#4108

They are both frontier lands so can see why they are similar. Our crocs are bigger though !!

GAME OF THRONES TONIGHT!!!


#4110

My buddy hitting 161kg for a double on axle clean and press. Can’t wait to see the wr get broken comp day !!


#4111

You reckon for the clean and press event if lifters can jerk it instead of press that they will perform better? I mean weightlifters get the most weight locked out overhead no?


#4112

Definitely. Then again you don’t see guys like Big z Split jerking the world record or even the Axle wr and I think that’s due to their size and mobility issues. But then that argument is contradicted by Rob Kearney lol:

I is confusion. But yeah i definitely think the jerk adds alot of kg


#4113

Rob Kearney started split jerking right away when he started strongman and has been doing so for a decade. He knew that was his best path and its worked out great for him. Most of the other guys would get weaker trying to split jerk
