Strongman Event Day

365 for 50 ft, approx. 11 seconds
365 for 50 ft, approx. 11 seconds
365 for 50 ft, under 10 seconds
365 for 50 ft, under 10 seconds
405 for 50 ft, 9.5 seconds
405 for 50 ft, approx. 11 seconds

notes: Goal here was to push my time under 10 seconds. Cold parking lot, uneven ground, bah.

Farmers Walks (1-2 min rest)

130 each hand for 100 ft
130 each hand, 200 ft with 1 turn halfway (AKA, walk 100 ft, turn 180 degrees without setting it down, walk back)
130 for 200 ft with 1 turn halfway
180 for 100 ft
180 for 100 ft

notes: Practicing longer distances, tried to go as fast as possible but did not bother to time myself, got some practice in turning (which isn’t easy), and then went heavier for some straight distances.

Sandbag Front Carry (2-3 min rest)

200 lb bag, 160 ft with 1 turn halfway
200 lbs 160 ft with 1 turn halfway

notes: My weakass core was starting to gripe on me, and I was grabbing the bag too high, so I had problems standing upright, so I only did 2 sets and moved on. It gave my core a decent workout though, that’s for sure!

Car Push

One of the other people was pushing their hatchback half a block at a time down the side streets behind the gym, so I joined in and did it once. Fun!!

That counts as cardio right? lol definitely got my heart rate up and kept me moving.
