Strongman Day

Yoke Walk (go heavy, don’t drop, walk 30 ft, turn around, repick, take it back)

365 for 30 ft, then back
405 for 30 ft, then back
505 for 30 ft, then back
505 for 30 ft, then back

notes: once I dialed the weight up to 505, my stride became much more important. Walking with this thing works the core to keep it from swaying, and if I took too long of a step, I have to twist to keep it stable, and I end up tightrope walking. Short, choppy steps.

Sandbag Front Carry (200 lb bag)

pick it up, carry it approx. 100 ft with one 180 degree turn
pick it up, carry it 60 ft with one 180 degree turn

Atlas Stone Load

170 lb stone to a 48″ platform then bring it back to the ground, 5 reps
170 lb stone to a 48″ platform then bring it back to the ground, 5 reps

notes: Once I go from a 210 stone down to a 170 lb, the size difference is notable, I find it annoying trying to wrap my arms over and around, stone is too small. I did these reps as fast as I could, felt like cardio!!

Car Push

2 grown ladies sat in their hatchback and put it in neutral, I pushed it for over half a city block
Then I did it again.

The car was light so once it got moving, it became more of a sprint with my hands resting on something, haha. Hard to keep up.

Strongman Event Day


Yoke Carry (generous rests)

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.
