Hi Jim, I know you’ve mentioned in the past this isn’t your forte, but I would like to check if you’ve came up with anything since about working strongman training in?
I’d be especially interested in how best to mix into a BBB template. Next week is deload and then I plan to do the 13 week BBB challenge from beyond.
I was doing the 2 day split with one day for SM training, but have since changed to the standard BBB 4 day template (doing dead/squat on sat, then throwing in stones and farmers)
I’m was thinking of keeping the BBB as written and on Squat day adding yoke and tire; treating them the same way as bi/tri’s on upper-body day(just get some work done depending on whats left after the main work) and the same on DL day by doing stones and farmers.
Now I’m curious if BBB might not be the best template now because adding that in may be too much volume, and maybe instead with the 5x10 assistance work on lower-body day it would be best to do a SM event like stones or tire…
Current split (531/5x10/5x10)
MON Press /bench /chins (light bis/tri/pullaparts)
THU bench/press/DB row (light bis/tris/pullaparts)
WED Squat 531/dead 5x10/yoke 3 runs/tire 3 sets/abs
SAT Dead 531/squat 5x10/farmers 3 runs/stones 3 sets/abs
or moving away from BBB;
WED Squat 531/tire 5x10/yoke/abs
SAT Dead 531/stones 5x10/farmers/abs
Any suggestions appreciated…
