Head Supported Swiss Bar Rows
Yoke/Farmer’s Walk Medleys
Gironda Perfect Curls
31 Minutes of Stretching
Comments: I took an extra day of rest this week as it was raining all day and I
wouldn’t have been able to get in events stuff and it wouldn’t have hurt so I’m
going into a deload week. Not much to say on the front squats other than it is
speed work. Block pulls went much better this time. I didn’t feel like I was in
trouble on the first single like the past two weeks haha. While not easy by any
means, I didn’t feel crushed and beaten by the end of it. Light singles to get
ready for snatch grips seem to be doing the trick. It feels easier each time I
do them, even with increasing weight each week. On to rows from there. Attempted
to pull the swiss bar to my gut but even that appears to be a journey too far.
I pulled as high as I could and moved on. Took a mid-workout weight gain shake before
setting up the medley work. I’m feeling better at this each time, even with the
increased weights. The weights are still light but I’m now within 80% of the
Chicago Pro/Am weights (if I decide to do it). I accidentally did 4x8 instead
of 4x6 on the curls. I think the day of rest helped as this was the easiest
these have been. I put a different attachment on the pulldown machine for abs
that made it quite a bit tougher. Cooled down with putting equipment away,
stretched and ate a recovery burrito.
I’m a little taller than 6′7″ and I really like to lift weights. I’m a
competitor in amature strongman contests. Right now, I'm training for the Beast of the Bluegrass in Lexington, KY on April 28, 2018. My hope is to become a competitive
professional strongman. I’m not a major competitor yet and I have a long way to go but I’m having fun.
