Strongman Training, Strong Men Training

I trained with Kyle again today. He decided to do some farmer’s carry and he texted me about it this afternoon, so I had plenty of time to ruminate on it.

hang clean: 135×3, 185×3, 225xmiss, 205×2 I suck at these so bad. I don’t know what the deal is. I’m clearly strong enough, I guess I’m just not fast/powerful enough. More jumping? I don’t know.

low, medium grip safety bar box squat: 150×1, 240×1, 330×1, 380x2x1 These were killer. This was a really low box too, probably three or four fingers below paralell.

axle skull crushers: 90×8, 120×8, 120×10 I don’t think I figured this up right last week. The axle weighs about 70 pounds, so a ten on each side is about 90, not 60 like I think I recorded last time.

farmers walk: 205 per hand 80ft two runs, one run with 255 per hand, then a half a run back when Kyle couldn’t complete. One of the advantages of bodyweight and hand strength over my svelte companion.

That’s it. I should have made Kyle do his stretches and a little extra back work, but I was ready to go home and eat something.

This workout was also fueled by Steven Seagal’s Lightning Bolt energy drink. Drink it, if you dare.

  1. Sounds like a really good workout. I always love adding some strogman in at least once a week. Farmers walk is a real good one to as it hits almost everything you’ve got.
    Keep up the good work and stick at those hang cleans man!
