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

  • 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.

What’s the difference with cambered bar


Takes stress off of your shoulders and elbows and the weight is lower(around the center of your body). So it takes alot more effort to stabilize the weight(it will swing alot on the way up if your arent tight as furk).
