Hey man, great workout, you are very strong, I watched some of your vids and you did awesome work there!! What kind of training split do you do?

I've not officially welcomed you, so welcome to the board. Nice workout. Good job on the PR!! Are you going to continue competing in strongman? Six events for a 20 year old. Very impressive.

Thanks. Yes I am going to keep competing in strongman but I am just focusing on getting overall stronger right now, so I can be a force to be reckoned with for the spring competitions. There is one competition, Paxton 5,at the end of my 1st training cycle somewhere in December that I may do, but I have to see how I feel a month from now. I am going to re-start my event trainings on saturdays, so by sunday I should have a nice video of the highlights of the week.

Thanks. I do 3-4 days a week training. Right now it looks something like :

Tuesdays- Bench press, Press assistance work, stability work

Thursdays-Squats, Deadlifts, and some compound assistance work such as front squats, or good mornings, then some power cardio

Saturday Events typically some form of Clean and Press, followed by event variations

Rest or stretch the others days, may do light cardio when I please.

I do it this was so I can rest pretty well and not kill my body so much.

I am doing Wendlers 5/3/1 on my bench, squat and deadlift and on my deload week for that I will do heavy events training. Right now events will be more for cardio and technique.

I like to focus my strength training on compound movements and use assistance work to just assist so I plan on alternating it a lot.
