Saturday morning! I didn’t sleep at all Friday, so I slid into the strongman gym a few hours late and feeling like crap. I decided to just get my main work done and go light on the assistance, and try to hydrate and detox a bit.

warmup: nada

Deadlifts (chucks, 1 minute 45 sec rests, beltless)

135 x 3
185 x 3
225 x 2
275 x 2
300 x 3
300 x 3
300 x 3
300 x 3
300 x 3
300 x 3
300 x 3
300 x 3
300 x 3
300 x 3

notes: I was so wrecked in the morning I packed the wrong shoes. I mean they were still flat, but they weren’t my SABOs. 105 second rests, stopwatch ready, 10 working sets of 3 at 60%. Made me sweaty.

I was reeeeeally curious what the Rogue SSB was like, so I played around with it a bit today.

SSB Squats (just the bar, short rests)

70 lb bar x 8
70 x 10

Leg Press (steep incline, feet high)

9 plates x 8 @ RPE7
11 plates x 8 @RPE7
11 plates x 8 @RPE7.5

SSB Good Mornings (short rests)

70 x 12
70 x 12
70 x 15

notes: I declare the new Safety Squat Bar… GAF! Will definitely make it part of my assistance work.

Then I headed outside for some light frame carries. Easy cardio.

Frame Carry (short rests)

180 for 80 ft
180 @ 80′
180 @ 80′
180 @ 80′
180 @ 80′ SUPERSET with frame shrugs: 180 x 12
180 @ 80′ / 180 x 12 shrugs
180 @ 80′ / 180 x 12

notes: shrugs felt AMAZING. I might have to superset shrugs into more of my strongman events, lol.

Sun was beating down, I was so sweaty my grey shirt had become unrecognizable, and I was getting hungry, so we all split after this.
