    Oh man, shoot, I turned 45 4 days ago, don't tell me it's all downhill now.

    Actually I think the turning point depends a lot on when you started strength training. I didn't get serious about it...

    Picking dumbbells from the floor is harder than picking the same weight farmers. But making the turn with dumbbells will be easier than with farmers implements, but IMHO farmers implements are...

    Thanks everybody. I've been working on just acknowledging the negative thoughts as normal so I can let it go and then moving on to something positive. It seems to be working. Here I got a farmers...

    Or he doesn't have the suit pulled up for enough. Do you use leg slippers when you put it on?

    Edited: Opps, I just saw somebody else said the same thing.

    For strongman events, I do whatever van hatfield suggests. For gym sessions I do accessory work to strengthen weaknesses I see in my strongman events.

    Hmm, maybe it's that simple, i.e. to just acknowlege the thought is normal and then I can let it go and focus on something positive. Thanks.

    I think you're right. I enjoy the physical challenge, the mental aspects are just new to me I guess. It may sound contradictory because I have these negative thoughts, but at the same time I really...

    I'm starting to.



    I'm calm and focused, getting myself angry doesn't help me, at least it hasn't up to now. Maybe I'll give it a try. My training partners are great, but the negative thoughts...
  10. OK, thanks.

    OK, thanks.
  11. I'm starting to. Yes. I haven't...

    I'm starting to.



    Yes.




    I haven't tried that with any of the strongman stuff. I'll give it a try and see if it makes a difference.
  12. Taking things to the next level and self doubt

    As I'm trying to take my strongman performance to the next level, I'm getting to the point where I think mental issues are holding me back more than strength/endurance/performance issues. Part of...

    Well, I guess I kind of take that back after today. We did 330 farmers, but the implements were COLD and hard to grip, BUT I didn't feel like my feet were stuck, I actually could walk with it! But...
  14. Thanks for the reply, I'll give it a try.

    Thanks for the reply, I'll give it a try.

    But, I can hold it forever. I've got huge hands and a pretty strong grip. The problem is that my feet feel stuck to the ground.

    Poll: The only time I run is when I have heavy weight...

    The only time I run is when I have heavy weight on my back or in my hands or I'm pushing it or pulling something BIG. Otherwise it's just a way to loose muscle.
  17. Question to everybody who trains strongman events

    What have you found to increase your farmers the most? ( In 3 weeks I need to be able to do about 30 pounds more than my current PR. )
  18. I thought everything was pretty much fair game...

    I thought everything was pretty much fair game for a strongman show. I know a couple guys I train with said they've done strongman shows with a benching event ( I assume it was raw ).
