    I started lifting again in May of 2016. I got interested in Strongman in Early 2017. I’ve competed in 1 novice LW competition before, and learned a lot. A back injury from that show set me months back for months, but I’m finally feeling better and about to do my 2nd novice show!

    I thought this would be a good place to log my training and be more apart of the strongman community. Thanks for the site Kalle!

    Todays workout was crap. Im not sure if it was from fasting most of yesterday for a blood test, or from being sick to my stomach today, but nothing went right.

    Main Giant Set:
    Squat: 3×5 +1 amrap (7 reps)
    3 broad jumps
    12 V sit ups

    Everything felt slow and weak. My amrap goal was 10-12. Gotts repeat the weight next week now.

    Accessory Giant Set e rounds of
    6/leg lunge 115lb
    1:00 plank
    100′ keg carry 160lb
    10 Front squats 115lb

    Again slow and weak. During the 3rd roybd i felt a painful twinge in my lower back in an area that has previously been injured. Not sure what happened but i stopped there. I dont want to push it this close to a comp.

    Now i gotta go to a wedding..

    Bench day tomorrow.

    Another meh workout. Left elbow was bothering me throughout.

    Main Giant Set
    Bench: 3×5 +1 amrap @205 (12 reps)
    Dumbbell rows x6 @ 90
    6 kneeling ab roll outs

    Went okay, I suck at ab wheels.

    Assistance Set
    4×15 DB bench @40lbs super set with 4×10 wide grip rows @135lbs.

    Got a solid pump in. Widd grip rows really hit my traps.

    Accessory Giant Set
    3×8 DB flies @25lbs
    Sub max pull ups (did neutral grip) 3,5,5
    3×10 rear delt flies @12lbs

    Skipped conditioning due to time constraints today, however i did hit a reps of my new stones. 16″ 175lb and 18″ 185lb both to 48″.

    These new stones are really slick. My PR is 250 (with tacky), lapping 185 was a challenge with no tacky.

    Hope to rest up and have 1 last solid week of training before comp deload.

    Deadlifts Tuesday.

    Today went really well! A 405 pull is my next milestone, and i feel like i can hit it now. Butttt im in the middle of a program, so i need to stick to my plan.

    Main Giant Set
    Deadlift: 3×5 @305 1×12(amrap)(also a rep PR)
    2 box jumps
    30/leg bicycle kicks

    This went awesome, i had maybe another 1-2 in the tank on my amrap, i really feel like my deadlift is coming together.

    4×4 Front Squat @ 135, 165, 195, 225(rep pr)
    Followed by
    3×8 good mornings @ 95lbs
    3×8 db lunges per leg 25lb DBs
    3×10 DB swings 25lbs

    After hitting rep PRs on deads and front squats i took it light here. Skipped conditioning because it was getting pretty late.

    Press on Thursday

    Another not so hot workout. My elbows have been really bothering me on overhead days lately.

    Main Giant Set
    Strict Press: 3×5 @120 1×10(amrap).
    Weighted pull ups: 4×5 +10lbs

    This went okay. Strict pressing hasnt been going great lately, and my elbows just arent cooperating. Was hoping for 12 on the amrap.

    3×1 keg clean and Press @ 160.
    Trying to figure out my technique here. Im dumb and akward and kind of just muscle my way through it.

    4×8 axle c&p 140×6, 140×2 (elbows acting up had to stop)
    4×10 plyo push ups (tried but aggravatdd elbows)
    4×15 banded tricep pull downs

    After 1 set of axle c&p my elbows felt awful.


    3 rounds of
    3 minutes work 2 minutes rest

    50 mountain climbers
    15 sit ups
    60’ish pverhead carry (used 25lb dumbbells)
    Ended up hitting 2 cycles of everything each 3 minutes round.

    This was fairly easy, next time ill tdy it with 1 min rest.

    Squats Saturday then deload until comp on the 28th.

    I missed saturdays workout due to family activites. So i combined my main sets for squat and bench on sunday. However i got a very late start sunday and it was another poor workout.

    Main Superset
    Squats: 3×5 +1 amrap(10) @240.
    3 broad jumps.

    My squats feel akward and unnatural, definitly major form issues. I’ve never felt good squatting, and i am trying tk troubleshoot this.

    Main Giant Set
    Bench: 3×5 +1 amrap(7) @ 215
    3×5 cheaty rows @ 185
    8,8,5 ab roll outs

    Bench felt horribly weak. I should have had 12 no problem, but i felt like i had to strength last night.

    I called it after this set, i compete Saturday so next week will be a deload.
