    I know! I always say touch low press low, but I didn't press as low as I had to there.

    I'll be in the Junior Middleweight division, which is a top weight of 231.

    I'll list the events along with my current maxes.

    Log Press
    180# for reps
    My Max: 215x3

    Farmer's Walk
    180# for 100' with one 180 degree turn for time or distance
    Mine: Slick 130# dbs for 40 or so feet. Gonna have to hope for good teeth on the implement.

    Tire Flip
    700# for 90' time or distance
    My Best: 405ishx20, not timed (this was five years ago weighing 180)

    Atlas Stone Carry
    75# for 60' with one 180deg turn for time or distance.
    Making stones this week to train.

    Car Deadlift
    Weight of car: ?? Can't be much. Every division is using the same car.
    My Max: Hm. Never tried a car. Straps allowed here.

    Goals:

    Win the Log Press. I have a strong overhead press and I have a buffalo bar to train the log. If we can drive with our legs, it will really come down to my conditioning.

    Improve my conditioning. I need to prowl, prowl, prowl. These events are for reps, time, distance. That is going to take much wind.

    Finish the Farmer's walk. Nuff said. I'll train strapped and unstrapped to train the hands and the rest of the muscles used for the Farmer's.

    Get good at Stones. These will build so much upper back it will be ridiculous. Stones might be the thing that causes me to bench 405.

    Get video of me deadlifting a car. ;-)

    Improve my biceps health. This is going to be a biggie for benching in the future and also for using the stones. I find it hard to believe the event involves a 75 lb stone. I carried a 100lb plate in my yard until I got bored.

    Last, but not least, try to win the damn thing. I think these are reasonable goals, but you never know who or what mammoth creature will show up.

    I'll be purchasing The Cube for Strongman to get some ideas on how to train, but I have some of my own.

    Log Assistance: Press, push press, Z Press (named after legendary presser Zydrunas Savickas, sit on floor and press), Pin Press, Klokov Press, pullups, incline bench, facepulls, standing overhead triceps ext

    Stones: BB Rows, Snatch Grip Deads, yoke marches, husefell carries

    Farmers: bb static holds, strapped farmer's walks, shrugs, learn hook grip

    Deadlift: work on rep work, work on touch and go deadlifting.

    Tire Flip: Cleans, pull-throughs, incline press, finding a tire to flip.

    Come on in, let's get strong and take an in-depth look into a discipline that does not get much coverage.
    what's a Buffalo Bar?

    A buffalo bar is a bent bar for squatting. I was actually mistaken, I used a Swiss bar, which has parallel handles. That's a great tool, it gives the same feel as the log with some extra range of motion. Good for incline presses, flat presses, and of course standing presses.

    A roll of snuff for some hands-on squat coaching? I'm not sure who owes who!

    I like how we revived my old thread here. Lol.

    Haha, I didn't even notice. Probably because my legs are shaking furiously and I can't think straight, lol.

    You drove 45 min out of the way to help a brother out, so it's clear cut to me.

  13. lol just caught that
