Strongman Day

Feeling pretty beat up this morning, but I put on my big boy pants and went down to the gym.

I basically saw what other people were training and jumped in with them. It was humid and overcast outside, but we trained outside in the parking lot.

Yoke Walks Move quick, keep adding weight until my speed slows significantly. Rule of thumb, stay under 15 seconds

360 lbs for 70 ft
360 lbs for 70 ft
410 lbs for 70 ft
410 lbs for 70 ft
460 lbs for 70 ft
460 lbs for 70 ft
500 lbs for 70 ft
500 lbs for 70 ft

My speed had gone down, plus someone needed to take the yoke apart and do Farmer’s Walks, so I joined them on that.

Farmer’s Walks

130 lbs each hand for 150 ft
130 lbs each hand for 150 ft
160 each hand for 150 ft
160 each hand for 150 ft
200 each hand for 150 ft
200 each hand for 80 ft
130 each hand for 40 ft, 180 degree turn, then back 40 ft
130 each hand for 40 ft, 180 degree turn, then back 40 ft

After that I could have done Atlas Stones, but for:

a. I had nothing to protect my arms, and they would get shredded
b. I had done extra sets of the other 2 and was now getting a little gassed from the heat and humidity
c. I was now starving out my butt

So called it a day and came home.
