Default Strength athletics

I'm starting this new thread for those of us who train/compete in strongman, highland games, or powerlifting. I competed in powerlifting for nearly ten years in the 148# class. A few years ago I began competing in strongman. Recently I also began throwing for the Highland Games. I've done one contest and I had a blast.
My training now consists of strongman training 5 days a week with one day of throwing highland games events.
I have strongman events tomorrow morning and highland on sunday. I'll start this new training log this weekend.
Feel free to post any strongman, highland, or powerlifting post here.

Default Strongman event training

I warmed up with a little jump rope
Started with the stones at 48"...
125x5
200x3
240x1
260x1
285x1 PR
310x miss... Almost had it at 48". I was too far away from the yoke, if I had been a little closer that would been a PR, but wouldve shouldve couldve dont cut it in strongman! Ill kill it next time!

And ended the day with...
Yoke 320# 4x100'

Looking foward to highland tomorrow.. Going to throw some hammer, 56# for distance, and 28# stone for distance! FUN STUFF!

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.
