This is my first time logging here. Use to log on MMI but the board closed this week. Former Powerlifter where my best lifts were 775/465/675. Training Strongman now coming off some injures (MCL) so have been doing lite weight high reps for the past few months. With Strongman season coming up decided to SLOWLY work my way back. So here we go:
Trap Bar Deadlifts: 135x10,225x5,315x3,405x3,455x3x2sets,455x2x2
Lat Pulldowns:5x2 10x2
Seated rows: 5x3,10x2
DB Curls: 10x3
BB Curls: 6x3
Hammer curls: 10x3

Welcome. Are you using the trapbar to better simulate an event or as part of your rehab?

Using it to practice for a car deadlft, will also be using farmer pickups.

Talked to an oldtimer today(yes older than me) and he was telling about somethings they did back in the day, so I tried something different today.
BenchPress: 200lbs, reps ranged from 2-8 for 30 straight minutes.Rested no longer than 45 seconds between sets, the last 11 minutes all sets were 2 or 3 reps.
Dips: with 45lbs, reps 5-10 for 10 straight minutes.
Now I don't know if this got me any stronger but when I went to change it look like my upper body just exploded

SLDL's: 225 for 30 minutes 4-6 reps no longer than 45 seconds between sets
Lying Tri Extensions: 70 for 6-8 reps 10 minutes
I did this Tuesday and my hammies are still screaming today lol

Looks exhausting :) What kind of programming do you follow for your lifts? Its really hard to find solid info on integrating powerlifting/strength training programs into strongman training and I'd be curious to know your thoughts.
