You're A Strongman Camko (Hogwarts Gym of Liftcraft and F*ckery)



There is a very good chance I zero that event, going to be real stoked to complete 1 rep haha.


Im in the same boat, the MW log is 240lbs and I barely got the 200lbs for 2. If I am able to get 1 rep by february I would say that is great progress.


Join the gang lol! Log press is the devil


I just need to learn how to create a stable rack position, which I think you are a having a similar issue


I enjoy OHP already and all these guys on the forum here make me wanna try out log too


Trust me, you wouldnt want to lol

  • Need to work on form for the SSB Squat(Mainly Upper Back Tightness), almost got folded over on the last rep of the last set.
  • Was happy with the deadlifts, contest weight is 585lbs, so just gonna up the weight by 10lbs every week till I am able to get 585lbs for at least 8, then keep working on getting more reps.
  • Gonna add some bands next time doing GHD, just to add some extra spice to it.
  • Grip strength is still looking good.
