14" Pick Farmer's Deadlifts
55 Gallon Oil Drum Bear Hug Carries
Comments: I was not sure if I was going to train today but I did so it was a bit of a late start. I started with yoke and figured I'd just go 30' with it and just go up in plate jumps. After 755lbs, realized I was still going beltless so I keep going with that. 845lbs wasn't bad but I got off balance and dropped the yoke but picked it up with little hesitation and finished. The next jump would be 935lbs. I noticed it would be 10lbs over my beltless PR if I did 50 with it so I planned on doing that. I got 30' with one drop and knew I could get the rest of the distance. On farmer's picks, I decided to stay beltless and use my squishy shoes so the picks would be even tougher. I did this because next week I'll have access to a frame for carrying. I also have trouble finding plates to fit on the one end of my farmer's implements. Left side of my upperback didn't like these at all when I put them down. No problem with picking them up which was weird. Only got two with 308lbs but that still good considering the low pick, no belt and awful deadlifting shoes. Then I setup a fun medley that I thought would be easy. I got my 55 gallon oil drum out and four 50lbs sandbags. I set a sandbag at every 25'. The idea was to carry it in a bearhug style. I reconsidered the ease of this medley when I got to 181lbs and my grip was slipping. I could not get 231lbs off the ground. Talk about embarrassing haha. I did it again without the fourth sandbag but took 181lbs for 50'. Then I figured I'd give 231lbs another try. I dug deep and got it up and made it 52' (it was dark and I couldn't really make out the lines). So I setup the original medley again. First three were easy but then it was a real struggle to get 231lbs up and going. Manged to get that. Nice workout. Will have to wait and see about tomorrow as a big snow storm is coming.
