Strongman Event Training
 
Stones over 52" yoke
200x1
200x1
220x1
240x0x2- just short on both attempts
Little warmup, the 240 over 52" would have been a PR.
I was ok with the stones, this height is throat level for me, I'm only 5'3(63")

Yoke (been a couple weeks since i've hit these, so the weights felt heavy)
200x100
290x100
380x100
470x50 no drops
470x75 (2 drops)
520x couple steps- just feeling out the weight

Conans Wheel using Yoke
200x100x2
just feeling this out, back and legs already tired from yoke walk, just feeling out the conans wheel

Looks intense. What type of warmups, or what warmup approach do you generally do for stones?

I generally warm-up with some jump rope to get the blood flowing and occasionally I'll do kettlebell swings (couple sets of ten). Then just work with some light stones. We have a 90, 120, 140. Next would be the 200, thats normally where I'll start what ever rep scheme I'm going to work that day. If it's singles I'll do a couple singles with that then move up.

For this workout I was running late and they had already started the stones, I felt pretty good so I just warmed up with the lighter stones and jumped in.
