hey sully, what kind of stuff do you do to prepaire for the strongman? i can imagine you flipping tires over in your back yard and pushing/pulling your car around the neighborhood.


#6

I had been doing:

Legs/Shoulders

Chest/Triceps

Back/Biceps

Each workout I did 2 exercizes for the 1st muscle group, 1 for the 2nd. All exercizes are 5 sets for 5 reps. This is a strength building program. My foal was to maintain my lbm while cutting up.

I usually go for a leisurly 25-30 minute walk in the mornings before breakfast on "lifting" days to kick-start the ol' metabolism. My workouts usually take me 45-60 minutes and I will follow it up with 5-15 minutes of moderate intensity cardio on the eliptical machine. I am doing sort of a "experimental" progressive rep scheme on a weekly basis.

Week #1...80 total reps
Week #2...100 total reps
Week #3...120 total reps
Week #4...80 total reps

I am doing a "strength" phase as of right now, so my reps are in the 3-5 range and after week #4 I will switch that to the 6-8 range. Anyways, thats what I am doing now. I like it and it seems to be getting decent results


#10

Whole body stuff 3-5 times a week. Mainly basics like d.bell clean and press, deadlifts, The Bear and push press.
