Thanks fellas! Apparently that tire is 600 lbs give or take. It is 650-75 new and is about halfway worn so 600ish is about right. Pretty cool.

Haha. That 20 rep set was fast because I wanted it over with!! Those are brutal. The 15 reps go pretty well, but those last 5 just wear you down!

Wasn't feeling great today. Not sure why, so just did the basics and got out of there. Still a good workout as I pushed the big lifts hard, but no accessory stuff.

warmup: hip and leg stretch, some squat jumps for height

Cleans:
3x 135
2x 5x 115 (Straight up cardio! Go to 3x 5 next week, then add weight)

Squat:
315x 1
235x 10, 6, 6 (reps made, add weight)

CGBP:
225x 1 pause
195x 10, 7, 6 (reps made, add weight)

Sumo:
295x 1, 315x 1 (barely)
215x 7, 7, 7 (reps made, add weight)

Sled push, empty:
2x 25 yds or so. Just breaking these in slowly. Will add and lengthen as I go.

235x 10:
195x 10:
295, inner bumpers are 35s:
315, added 10s on outside:
I video'd these to see if I am doing these right or if anyone has any advice. I have the hardest time breaking the floor, then the lift goes pretty smooth. Well, unless I lose my balance like I did with the 315. Sometimes when I lock out Sumo, I feel like I might fall forward or backward.

The cues I use are to turn my feet and knees out, arch, chest up, shoulders loose, get tight, lower to get my hands on bar, grab it and start pushing feet through the floor. Once it comes up, I just think move hips through. Just mentioning this as it might be usefu information to some of you more experienced types.

Bonus, Sled Push! I know more of a canter than a gallop, but you gotta start somewhere:

I got that sled from the guy who gave me the tire. It's really solid and works well. Going to work that in everyday. Interval/Speed on training days and Heavy/Slow on recovery days

There you go. Onward and upward. Haven't really lost any weight as yet either. I'll give it another week of this level of calories and meals, then start cutting back slightly if weight/belly doesn't come down any. We'll see.

Yeah Mike deadlifts look good. My only suggestion is just to push for as much hip drive as possible. Can never have enough.

Sumos look good. Got to get those lats tight to keep the bar in tight and stop it wheeling around. Better than mine

Loving the Strongman training Mike.

As for the pulls here's my take.
Your hips are a bit high drop the hips about an inch open your hips up more this will push your crotch closer to the bar which will in turn put your torso in a more upright position for exploding up.
As I said initially this is a new movement for you reps will prove far more productive in the first few weeks, I wouldn't even do singles at this point. Your body may need a little stretching to get into better position. I laid on the floor face down with my knee's splayed out as far as they would go with my feet together. I've also been working with other stretches for IT bands, knees ankles ect... So lower to moderate percentages will allow your body adapt to the new demands your putting on the body while allowing to open your hips up more with less risk. In a few weeks you will be ready for higher percentages.
My 2 cents

Thanks BtB. Hip drive can always get better and I need to make sure I am accelerating as the bar goes up so that should help.

Thanks Al! Haha. Might look a little better, but you're pulling a lot more than me! So, Lats need to be much tighter. I see that now. Really I need my whole body a lot tighter. I'm working on that, but I almost feel like I will black out sometimes. That feeling contributed to my dropping the bar quickly on the 315. Losing your balance and brain getting foggy, not good. But defintely need tighter lats to keep the bar in tight and stop the helicoptering!

OMP. I agree completely. I only did the singles this time as I figured it would show where I am going wrong better. I don't think my flaws come out very much with lighter weights. Good tip on opening up the hips more and getting them closer to the bar. Dave Tate talks about that too. I definitely need some more flexibility as that position is not easy for me at all and when I hit my limit I think it tips me forward some and I lose leverage. All good stuff. Thanks!

So reps it is. I'll use a lighter last warmup single, then backoff for the three work sets with a 20 rep goal. And add some stretches to my recovery stuff.

Thanks fellas.

Nice session Mike and a big pat on the back for the sled pushing. That was a big score and you are going to have so much fun with that thing. My advice, start slow and use it progressively, adding laps and then weight. Once a month do a challenge session with it where you absolutely destroy yourself.
