11/10 Strongman training
Got to check out our new location. Its pretty awesome. We used to train out of a shed at a superbly brotastic gym. We now train out of a big storage unit on a quiet street. The best part is not trying to tetris fit all the equipment back in at the end of the day.
worked up to 500 for about 50ish feet. Felt pretty decent for not touching a yoke in a long time.
Worked up to 185 a hand. Felt good considering how long its been since I did them
Loaded our car dl frame up with a 240, 270, and 320 atlas stone, a 300lb keg, and a 350lb tire. Pulled it for a few reps then held for time. Felt pretty good. Then we added 90lbs to the handles and held for time. Then another 90 lbs and I couldnt pick it.
car dl chain suspended squat lift type thing:
Ok this is gonna be complicated but same set up as for deadlift but using chains and a bb starting from the hole position. Got it up with just the frame and then again with 90 added to the handles, but couldnt get it with 180 on the handles.
It was a fun day and just more of a screwing around type of session than anything, but it felt good to train events again. Its been awhile since I did that.
11/19/2012 squat and deadlift maxing
415X1 buried and smooth
455X1 easy peasy just running out of gas
10minutes of intervals on the stair stepper.
Going to start running the inverted jugg method on Tuesday. My wrist is still fuked, but I can still squat and deadlift and some variety will be good because SS is so boring.
