Nice work man!

What is the advantage to front squats with an axle? Does the box front squats have more carryover?

Thanks. As for the advantage, I picked them up from Mike Jenkins. He used an axle for all of his squatting until he got some specialty bars (cambered, safety, s-cubed). The thought behind it is that it won't flex or bend so it is harder. The idea behind the above parallel box is to help deadlift and overhead. About the same angle for breaking the weight off the floor and it's a good way to overload the shoulder girdle and to get used to supramaximal weights for overhead. You could do it with a barbell.

30 Minutes of Stretching

Comments: I did a number on three wheels last week but that didn't mean this was going to be the same. I felt a little off warming up but I was ready come go time. I went a bit more than I usually do and the chances of getting another rep were very slim when I stopped. I had the number 7 in my head before the workout so I went for it. Definitely feeling fatigue in my arms with the down sets. Doesn't help matters that strict pressing is next. I was more worried it would bug my knees than anything. Definitely getting tough, I feel I went into a different gear once it started to feel heavy and made it look like speed work on video. Finished up with triceps and upper back and stretching. Rest and then events on Sunday, followed by a much needed deload.

Thanks Steve. Hopefully I can put this power into my axle/log overhead once I get done with this contest prep.

I was in a dark frame of mind yesterday and it wasn't pleasant. It has passed for now. We all have to deal with are own personal demons from time to time. I'm back to it, just needed a lot time to think and sleep. My plans right now are to proceed with my commitments to the Brute Strength Plane Pull and Maryland's Strongest Man. From there, I think I'll be going back to a ME/DE split for lower body and have 7 week cycles rather than 4 week. I'm going to start implementing some of those ideas into my deload and the remaining weeks leading up to Maryland's Strongest Man.

October 07, 2013 Event Training

Dynamic Warm-ups

Yoke
305x50'
485x50'
640x50' in 8.79 seconds
725x50' in 11.04 seconds
810x50' in 13.54 seconds

18" Pick Farmer's Walk
115x50'
205x50'
260x50' in 9.09 seconds
295x50' in 10.03 seconds
330x50' in 12.87 seconds

Comments: It was raining in the morning and a tornado warning was in effect until 5:00 so I was fine with just going into my deload week. Got out of work and saw it was sunny and the rain was drying up so moving heavy stuff in my neighborhood was back on. Speed was good on my first set of yoke but I rushed the pick on my second and it cost me precious time. Went better with my heaviest set. 10lbs more and a little over 1.5 seconds faster. Farmer's were something else. First issue was elevating the pick height. My Rouge handles are just 15" compared to the 20" for the contest frame and 18" that I have been using. My dad cut some makeshift blocks to elevate the handles. That lead to issue number two as I had to worry about the blocks coming out of the gate. I also forgot how unforgiving these handles are. Almost lost my grip on the first run in my left hand. I made sure I was thoroughly chalked up for the other runs and yet my grip was given no mercy. Obviously times were a bit slower than I'd have liked with farmer's walk. On to deload.

This could turn into a shitty week. Found out last night reading the obituaries that a friend I hadn't seen in a few month passed away Friday. And my grandfather was admitted to a hospital last night pretty much as soon as I finished reading my friend's obit. So yeah, my mind is preoccupied.

Comments: Despite doing heavy yoke and farmer's walk yesterday, this felt pretty good. I think I could have put in a solid workout even if I wasn't doing a deload. Nothing really to add as the weights are light and I felt good doing them. I tested out some lower body stuff for possible implementation to my program.
