Just realized you kept a journal here. Great ****ing lifts. Keep slamming the weights man. Seeing how you train is really helpful
15 minute dog walk
5 tire throws each arm (25-30lb tire)
I enjoy GPP so much more when I change it up. The tire throws are a nice addition. There will be one in the strongman comp I am doing this July.

Tire throws! Hell yeah! I love doing those sometimes. I'm pretty good at it, too. Must be my crazy discus-throwing technique.
405 overhead press :O That is nucking futs! As well congrats on the wet panties.
PRs: 655/525/645 = 1825 Total
Meet PRs: Bench Only 525

One of our partners just broke both the bones in his forearm benching in a comp. It was pretty f'd up. My body is beat up and my mind is not in the right place. I have taken a few days off.

DE Bench Day
Speed bench 3 sets 225x3, 3 sets 275x3, 3 sets 315x3
Clean and press 135x1, 135x1, 185x1, 225x1, 275x0, 275x0, 275x0 (I just cannot get under the bar, I'm just too inflexible. I may just have to go back to the continental instead of the clean).
Pulldowns superset with pushdowns light 4x15
I hurt like a bitch. My arms are f'ing killing me. I am not used to training biceps at all and now training part time for strongman I am using them all the time. I feel like I have f''ing polio. Plus I spent all Friday loading plates in a warm up room at meet. Looks like lots of DMSO, ice, stretching, and ibuprofin.
speed sets with 315 is cool dude... haha
2000 or bust
Awesome speed bench sets, huge numbers.
315x3x3 is insane! Awesome work man.
Thanks guys. When I started speed about 3-4 months ago 225x3 actually felt pretty awful. I went down to 185. Once my body adapted I started moving up the weight. Now 315 feels pretty easy. I think next week I will go 225x3 (2 sets), 275x3 (2 sets), 315x3 (2 sets), 365 x3 (2 sets). I definitely like ramping up the weight as opposed to just starting and finishing with the same weight.
Do you incorporate a lot of bands or chains in the speed work? I noticed that the band tension really took a toll on my shoulders.
Walked the dog and then spanked the monkey!
5/11 ME Bench
Incline 525x1 EASY! PR!
3 Board Press 625 PR!
Superset mini band face pulls and 70lb pushdowns 4x15
Dumbell curls 35lbs 2x15
Awesome PRs, ridiculous numbers there man.
We need to get a video of some of these curls.
2" Axle clean and press did about 11 sets working on form and went up to 250. This should come around.
Farmers walk 115 each hand for 100+ feet with one turn. 205 each hand for 100+ feet with one turn. Yeah I almost broke my wrist on this one. I must have missed physics class one day in h.s. where this got explained. At the completion of the second set I dropped the weights--they stopped and I kept going. I tripped over the plates and went into the ground like a missile. I stopped myself with my left hand. I should have stopped my fall with my face. I don't need my face to bench. My wrist is still f'd up today. I'm sure I strained the ligaments. Lots of ice and ibuprofen.
Trap bar dl on blocks 675x5 (my wrist hurt--I could have done more).
skipped due to my wrist.

Too bad about the mishap, you will own them farmers soon enough.
