Train Strongman invades VA! Written by: Chris “XL” Jackson Due to surgery earlier in the year, I hadn’t really been able to train or compete since January. I was really looking forward to this show in VA, just to be able to get my feet wet again and get back to doing what I love. […]
First off, let me start out by thanking everyone who has been a part of my journey. Second off, let me apologize for how long it’s taken to post this write up. There have been many highs and lows on this journey and after I won the Arnold Middle Weight Strongest Woman Championship, I experienced […]
Well, it’s not so much a car deadlift as it is a hex bar deadlift, but this is what I’ve been using to train for it for the upcoming show on 4/30. I actually do have access to a car deadlift frame, but in my opinion, using the hex bar is just as good, if […]
Cambered Bar Box Squat 8×3@425 Seated GMs Split Squats Back Extensions Sissy Squats Single Leg Deadlifts Step Ups Alot of volume today. Knee felt good.
Log Clean & Press 1@295 1@325 Pull Ups Banded Pushdowns Today didn’t go as planned. 325 on log was supposed to be my last warm up set but ended up being my last set period. My pec felt weird and unstable, so I didn’t want to risk anything. Eventhough there is still some recovery needed […]

Stopped by my chiro today before training for some work on my back. It’s been bothering me for about 2 weeks. Mostly likely a result of not lifting as much due to sickness and competition. Anyway Kyle fixed me up with some adjustment and alot of soft tissue work. I felt pretty good walking out. […]
Training has officially begun for our next competition in April. Eventhough I did a competition Saturday, I still needed to get right into this training cycle. Since max log is one of the events, I also need to know where my strength is right now, since I haven’t done a log over 330 in over […]
