I have been reading this forum for a while now. I figured I would start a log on here to keep up with my workouts. I've been lifting for quite a few years now. I am currently competing in Strongman as a LW. My next comp is on Nov. 13th so my training will be geared toward that comp. Events are Press Medley, Sand Bag Carry, Farmer's Hold, Max Rep 15in deadlift, and stones. I've got a little shoulder injury going on right now so my pressing strength is down quite a bit. I'm not necessarily doing HCT, but I have been using some of the principles. I like it a lot so far. I'm doing a little BB style training here and there.

Stats:
25, 5'9, 240.

9/22
Squats- Just done as a warm up...I've squatted 4x in the past week.
45x10/95x6/135x6/185x6/225x6/275x6

15in Deads
135x6/225x6/315x6/405x6/500x10
All reps were from a dead stop and felt easy, but I thought I was going to see my breakfast for about 15 min. afterwards. I had planned on some light oly lifting after that, but the nausea didn't let it happen

Calf Raises- I'm on a mission to get rid of my tiny calves!
Lots of standing and seated calf raises.

BB Curls
70x6/90x6/100x6+2+2+2

Here is a vid of my last comp.

First time benching in quite a while today. Just decided to do some easy triples to see how the shoulder felt. It went decent. It usually takes me a few weeks to get the groove back.

Pressing is starting to feel back to normal. I'm ready to start putting up some weight again.

Rolling thunder and a little more grip work.

Very sore today for some reason. My pecs kept trying to cramp with the log presses. Didn't really plan on lifting today, but I am going fishing in the morning so I decided to get a little workout in.

Glad to get a PR on the pulls today. I'll take 5# where I can get it. My lockout is feeling good and strong these days, but I'm slow off the floor. I'll add in some snatch grip pulls. Those usually do the trick.

Felt pretty weak today. I am going to focus on getting my bench back to decent level for a while. I want to do a Raw (with wraps, preferably) PL meet soon. I'd like to break 1500@242 with wraps. Just gotta find someone to bench with to I can have a spotter.

Good workout today. I have been ridiculously tired the past few days. I thought I was getting sick, but I seem to be better this evening. Maybe, I just needed some deadlifts.
