12” One Arm Front Farmer’s Deadlifts
Yoke Front Carries
32 Minutes of Stretching
Last one for a bit. No lifting until Nationals and then taking at least
a week off. I did this workout a day early and earlier in the day than I
had planned. I figured this would give me more rest and I wouldn’t have
to wonder if I was going to be able to workout at the gym the next day.
Had to do it earlier due to family engagements. Still slept in a bit
but pretty much went over shortly after eating breakfast. Front
squatting was fine. Not launching these into orbit but still pretty
strong and solid. As this was at the Y, I had to do the odd setup like
last week with the trap bar. Just light singles so I figured it wouldn’t
be so bad. Knees not a fan of the narrow stance though. Rushed home for
the remainder of the workout. I went right for the working weight on
the one arm stuff. I went heavier as I was hurrying and it was easier
plate math to work with. Front yoke carries after that. Foot work felt
good but not fun. Kind of have to review these on an effort scale and a
discomfort scale. Even with deload weights, on a scale of 1 to 10 for
discomfort, these are unacceptable haha. Ab wheel and stretching to end
the day, week and cycle. Now just have to see.
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.
