strongman bachelor party, Let’s all PR events!
My good friend and top HW strongman Robert OB Oberst’s wedding was this weekend and since we are all training for Dallas Plat we got together the morning of the wedding to really kill events. It was a great group with me, Evan Hansmann, Robert Oberst, Deadlift Doug Carroll, Alex Whitaker, Eric Peterson, Chris Carroll, etc
Started with Axle clean and press, i wanted to go up to what the weights for San Jose are going to be and get a pr
275x1 1 rep pr
felt good! cleans felt solid, happy with how good the axle has been feeling.
OB went up to 375 for a double which was silly easy. he just ran out of room on the platform due to happy feet. Eric hit a solid 375 as well
next up was yoke, they have one of the best yokes I have ever used so despite having horrendous tendinitis in my lower inside shin i was going to take advantage
hit 610 for 50ft in 13 seconds for a pr
700 in 28 seconds with 2 drops… the pain made this hard i needed the yoke a little lower but its as low as this one goes haha it was a pr but i can really improve on this. Evan, OB and chris all went up to a grand which is just kind of crazy
and than we pulled a silly heavy v8 mustang convertible. Me, OB, Evan and chris got a rep with the handles out 4’ we moved them into 3’ and I got 6 and OB got 3. I’m still the car deadlift king!! i gave myself a black eye lifting that damn thing though, oh the feeling of your head is just going to pop off your neck.
I think the west coast is going to bring some heat to Dallas!!
