    Deadlifter's strongman log

    Training:

    Power clean 135x3 155x3 185x2 205x2 225x2

    High bar back squat 135x3 185x3 225x2 280x2 225x2 185x2

    Weighted Chin-ups bw x 3, 25 lbs x 4, 45 lbs x 5 - 5

    Good training. Back squat numbers may look low, but my form has NEVER been better. Perfect depth and perfect technique, my numbers will fly up soon.

    Good looking workout DL'er...

    So by the title of your journal, does this mean you are into "Strongman" events and training for those? Or are you just trying to be a "strong" man?

    GL... keep it heavy and hard..

    Hey guys.

    I compete in strongman competitions. My next show is probably going to be on August 18. Unfortunately, I'm going to Greece on June 27 and won't be coming home for 2.5 weeks, which will cut into some training time.

    Yes, I post on marunde-muscle forums, my name is Alex Apostol.

    Here's a video from last night:

    Please excuse my funny noises. Haha.

    Training:

    Standing strict press 135x1 145x4 145x3 170x1

    Weighted Dips bw x 5, 25 lbs x 5, 55 lbs x 5 (this isn't working with my apparatus)

    Taking it kind of easy in the gym, saving my energy for event training days lately.

    Training:

    Deadlift 135x3 225x2 315x1 385x1 475x0 (broke inch off the floor. should have attempted 455.)

    Snatch grip deadlift 225x4 275x2-1-1

    Gonna stick with snatch grip pulls for a little while. My deadlift technique needs some serious work.

    Pullups bw x 10-10-6

    1-arm Db row 65 x 5-5-5 (each side) weak as hell, was pre-fatigued and haven't done them in a while.

    Training:

    High-bar back squat (deep) 105x3 135x3 225x3 285x2-1 225x3-3

    Trap bar deadlift 135x3 225x3 315x1 405x1 495x0 455x1

    Safety bar squat (testing, assuming bar is 45 which it prob isn't)
    45x3
    135x3
    135x3
    185x1

    Not bad. Would have done the 495 trap bar deadlift if I didn't squat heavy before it. Did this workout at the B&W gym. I prefer lifting at home, I stick to my routine and stay focused that way.

    155x2
    175x2

    All of these exploded up. No press-outs. Definitely putting up 240+ on axle next week.

    Incline press against bands (pinkies on the rings, purples)
    45x8
    135x1

    DE LOWER

    Axle Cleans
    101x2
    151x1
    151x1
    171x2
    191x1
    191x1
    211x1
    211x1
    221x0 (didn't pull it high enough)

    These were mixed grip pulled all the way to the shoulders. I like this technique.

    Lying leg curls
    50x10
    70x10
    70x10

    These were super easy, EXCEPT for the last 2 inches...this exercise feels way different than the natural GHRs.

    EVENTS

    Tire flips
    Did some doubles and triples with the hard 500 and the 700. Tech felt OK. It's definitely coming along.

    8'' Log Clean + Jerk
    130x3
    130x3
    180x2
    180x2
    200x2
    220x1

    So easy. I have a 240 in me...I just pressed a couple days ago.

    Mucked around with axle a little bit.

    Stones just chalk
    220 to 52''
    220 to 52''
    220 to 52''
    260 couldn't quite lap it, next time though

    I can now consistently pick up the 220 which is really a great sign. My upper body strength has improved significantly. I have the strength to load much bigger stones, just got to work on lapping.

    Did a bunch of singles with the 95 lb inch dumbbell.

    Great day.

    10'' Log clean + push press (one knee bend)
    60x8
    151x2
    171x2
    206x3 PR
    221x1 PR

    Dropped the 2nd rep of 221 behind my head because I felt a slight twinge in my rear delt and decided to be safe. You will see on the video that I definitely would have had the second rep.

    Flat bench press (pinkies on the rings)
    135x5
    185x2
    225x6
    225x6
    225x6

    All 225 sets were a PR. Can't wait to see what I can do heavy next week.

    DB cuban press

    5-6 sets up to 30's x 6

    Chin-up to failure game, my partner and I kept doing chin-ups until we couldn't anymore. Must have done close to 100.

    Some band pushdowns, and that was it.

    Besides the rear delt twinge, the day was great.
