    My training log as a newcomer on Kalle Becks programming.

    Opening day –
    Overhead Press 5×8 45kg-55kg
    Pull Ups (with bands) 3×8 & Face Pull 3×15 SS
    Z Press 2×8 35kg
    Giant Set – Lat Raise, front Raise & rear Delt Flys 3×10 12kg
    Cash Out – 20kg BB Curls 25

    First day so nice and light. Not a bad session to be honest but maybe a little conservative on the weight in some areas.

    Day 2 –

    Front Squat 5x 55/65/75kg 3sec pause
    Sandbag 40kg Carry 2x15m
    Keg carry 60kg 1x15m
    Barbell Lunges 40kg 3×12
    Banded Pull-ups 1×10 1×8
    TRX inverted Rows 1×10
    (I used this instead of the sled pull)
    3x60sec planks

    Conditioning – 21-15-9
    24kg kettlebell swings
    24” box jumps

    I’m feeling I need more conditioning to help get the weight down at the moment, I’m still walking around at 215lbs and need to be at 198lbs for contest in feb!!

    Sandbag is definitely too light so I need to look at filing it to at lease 65kg.

      Thanks Kalle. Really enjoying the plan so far. If I could ask 1 question, when you set the reps and sets do you have a specific way you write them? For example – I always use sets first followed by reps ie 3×10. Or I would normally take the highest number and count that as reps. Just to clarify as I did see one set was 10×1 which I could take that as hypertrophy up or a strongman warm of 10 sets?

      Cheers buddy

    Felt like an absolute monster of a session today. Was going to do some chicken ndutioning but might do it later. My arms and shoulders are raging. One of the best sessions I’ve had to be fair, thanks to Kalle.

    A brand new whole world of custom built toys coming tomorrow. Yoke, log, farmers. Axle, monster DB. Can’t wait to play, and I think my garage strongman gym is virtually done, just need to workout so I lift all my plates now and buy more!
