Tonight I did some strongman training, we did the yoke walk and farmers walk, the first time I've tried either. I did 603 pounds with the yoke walk for I guess maybe 20 feet ( i'm guessing ), I wasn't wearing the right shoes. MAN, very hard, but I think after training this for a while, walking out a squat will be a cake walk.
Here's the video.

just put the numbers/letters after the = sign in the area
Can't get on Youtube at work but I will check out the video later.
A lot of the Yoke has to do with having the right equipment (belt/shoes) and breathing. You are right that it makes your squats feel like a feather though!
Here is a video of me doing yoke last week:
Hitting 600 lbs for any distance the first time touching one is quite good, especially at your height.
850 lbs, nice. What contest was he training for?
There is actually a Platinum Plus (Pro Card) contest for Heavyweight competitors coming up in Dallas in about two months.
If you would like to discuss technique or tips/pointers on any events just let me know. Strongman training is fun!

I'm trying to think how we did PL and SM at 1-0-7. I Think we pretty much replaced the DE workouts with mobility/event training, though I thought we still did 4 days a week. I could be wrong, maybe Ben remembers.
M: ME lower (squat oriented)
W: ME Bench/pressing
R: De lower/ME Dealifts (I think)
Sat or Sun: event training
I am almost positive that is how it went.
