todays session included
keg load and sled drag
axle clean and press
Got vid of everything cept the yoke. Nothing too exciting... I got a PR with the axle but stones continue to give me hell. I hate being short
That is some seriously cool stuff. I could see myself getting into that type of training once I build my foundational strength.
Watching you with the stones I'm thinking man that would totally suck to drop that on your foot. Be safe!
Nice job Chip.
I have done keg/sled medley training like that in the past and it is brutal...
On the stones I noticed that after you lapped the stone you did not bring your feet together (I have a habit of not doing this as well), but if you do bring them together it will give you another couple of inches at the top. Another trick is to wear a soft belt and put a little bit of tacky on the chest area of your shirt. You lapped it easily so should be loading that stone in no time!
Thanks for the advice on the stone lapping. When you lap the stone, do you recomend bringing your arms over the top of the stone (kinda like I do in the video) or bringing your arms over the center of the sides of the stone (as if you are putting your arms over the equator of a globe)?
With regard to the arm placement I prefer to wrap my arms around the sides of the stone so that I can squeeze it into myself and roll the stone up my body, or front squat it up in some cases. Some lifters prefer the 'over the top' method though. My advice would be to try both and see which works best for you and which method is most comfortable.
You also may want to try some different footwear such as OLY shoes or boots, sometimes the extra 1/2" or a little bit more stable footing can make a difference.
