Default "I'm feeling skinny Tony!"

My name is Craig Pfisterer. I’m a little taller than 6′7″ and I really like to lift weights. I’m a competitor in NAS strongman contests. My hope is to become a competitive professional strongman. Every time I get a PR, regardless of the lift or exercise, I set aside 25 cents for Action Against Hunger to donate at the end of the year. I’m not a major competitor yet and I have a long way to go but I’m having fun.

I've been using pretty much the same template for about a year and a half with slight changes. This is my template in its current form as I tend to make adjustments. I may even make changes to it today, depends on how I feel. On my ME days, I work up to a heavy/max single on the main lift and then do a back down set with 90% of that for as many reps as I can. The supplementary lift I do sets of three to a heavy/max triple. The event lifts I have built into my gym days follow a light/heavy and long/short format. The heavy days I work up to a tough/max set for that distance/rep scheme (besides yoke). The light days are 50% of my best for the higher rep or long distance days and then up to 75% on the lower rep or short distance days. Event days are an anything goes type day but I try to keep some lifts lighter than others rather than go all out on everything. I only occasionally do that and that's usually two weeks before a contest.
