So, I've been trying to lift more and get in better shape. I'm in alot better shape than I was before I started so now I want to start training for the highland games. Check here for a list and description of the games.
This weekend I'm going to work on getting some equipment(hammer, rock, weight, etc.) made up. Only thing I know I won't be able to get my hands on is the caber. Still, my plan is to lift three days a week. Lifts will be compound lifts for the most part (ie deadlift, benchpress, squat, clean and jerk, overhead squats, etc.) Then I'll spend 1-2 days a week practicing technique and actually doing the events.
Now, I did a search and found very very few threads on this. Is there anything else I should be doing? Any specific lifts that I didn't mention that would help?
