Sounds like Wisconsin weather. And nothing beats getting the kids involved at an early age. I love to let my girls come down and experiment with the weights.

Yeah the boys love it. For the strongman stuff, I have a couple small tires, and med. balls that the kids flip and pick-up. The older one actually likes to load the pony keg. I figure if you get them interested now, you won't have to fight the video games and tv as much later.

Default Upper body strongman

Warmed up with snatches 3x5

Axle press with Blue band light method
185x5
245x5
265x2
265x1
Today I just felt like I had no sense of staying tight and no explosion. I didnt hydrate like I usually do, I felt it, and I showed! Even though I hit 250 last time on this I wanted at least 285 for a single. After this we went and did farmers walk...

Farmers Walk for 60'
175x60'
200x60'
250x60'x3
The pick up on 250# was easy and I feel im getting faster each week with them. This is the first time I went 60' with 250#.
So overall day of training I felt like crap but I set some PRs and a little disappointed but hey we all have those days, we just have to push through them, and we get better because of them!

Default Me upper body

Started up with snatches 1x3 95#
one arm barbell snatches 3x3 per arm 95#

Then started axle clean and press
135x3
185x2
215x1
240x1
250x1 PR on both clean and press
260x miss
This was very interesting because this was the first time doing this. One thing I found out is that I really need to implement heavy continental cleans, and also work on the over/under grip and make that smooth transition when I continental. Basically if my clean had been there, there would have been no doubt I could have pressed 270#. Press was too easy! You learn a lot in each lift, and you make the necessary corrections. But hey I hit a PR and its only been a good two months training strongman. I know if I didnt have the training partner i have I wouldnt be where I am. Hes my coach and my best friend!!
KEEP THE PRs COMING! STRONGMAN SATURDAY TOMORROW!
