Squat:
2X5@45
1X5@100
1X3@150
1X2@200
3X5@255
*Squats are starting to require a touch more rest between sets. Weight isnt heavy yet nor have I missed a rep, just starting to get winded after sets.

Deadlift:
1X5@135
1X3@225
1X2@315
1X5@350
1X1@405
*Deads are still rather easy so I pulled an easy single with 405 because its been awhile since I touched something in the 400lb range.


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.

Yoke walks:
worked up to 500 for about 50ish feet. Felt pretty decent for not touching a yoke in a long time.

Farmers:
Worked up to 185 a hand. Felt good considering how long its been since I did them

Frame deadlift:
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.

squat:
135X5

415X1 buried and smooth

deadlift:
135X3

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.
