Lower Body Training- Squats 8/25/2015

My squat days are short and sweet!  The focus is really training moderate-heavy squats for reps.  I have started doing a lot of paused front squats to help build my strength for strongman events.  They are tough, but for some reason I love them more than regular front squats Paused Front Squats 110lbsx5 125lbs x3 […]

Now that I have had some time to breathe and get somewhat back to normal life I thought it would be a good time to take inventory of how my last Strongman contest went. I take things seriously. 3 years ago I applied to be North Carolina’s NAS chair for strongman because I was tired […]

Still working on that log press!

Screen Shot 2015-02-25 at 10.22.07 PM

Wednesday Decided to get some log pressing done during lunch instead of waiting until strongman training in the evening. Felt pretty good! Still can’t get 6 at 245lbs but it is getting better. During strongman training I did a few log singles up to 275lbs without issue. Also did some hummer tire style deadlifts. Not […]

Week 12 – Pectoral Flies for the Cutie Pies

300

Had to drive to NY to grab one of my mom’s dogs. Won’t get into specifics, but I ended up driving about 1500 miles over the course of 3 days. That amounted to 24 hours of being in my truck, 12 of which were accompanied by a 120 lb Akita sitting in my passenger seat. […]

This weeks training is starting off heavy!

Monday I shouldn’t have adjusted my training percentages to my new 1RM from last week. I was simply not ready for the weight. If I compare the percentages to what I have been basing things off of then I am fine… but mentally… things just felt heavy before I even started. Front Squats Warmup 255lbs x […]
