Dinosaur Training

  1. Satyricon,

    Hang in there and stay tough. Remeber there is a guy in Ky training in a dirty cold barn as heavy as he can. You know what I think about when its just me out there in the cold? I think about the story of Reg Park having to sweep the snow off his weights back in England in the 40s. He lifted in the dark and winter cold all by himself and built the strength and body of Hercules. he let nothing stop him. I sometimes pretend I am Reg...sad that a 32 year old man still pretends huh?

  2. Talking

    Damn, training in an unheated environment is brutal. That'll toughen you up Rocky IV style, though. I've done a few strongman workouts in the cold and performance (especially grip) suffers. Keep up the good work.

  4. I lift 200 lbs with the preacher bar in one hand while doing a raised hamstring stretch, as well as carry a fridge on my back.

    Blah blah blah. Whatver works to get the results you want, is the proper type of training. Thanks for a useless thread!

  5. yab daba doooo!!!!

    you're welcome. And also thanks to you for such a classy and witty comeback from a company rep! I 'm sure you will represent them well especially with posts like that. It really makes me not want to look into what they have to offer. So, with your anything but worthless post, you successfully showed how to be dumb enough to read an entire thread of useless blah, blah, blah, insult guys that were discussing things here that they are free to discuss in the proper forum, and to be a taint to possibly good company!

    Yeah it gets real hard at times. Sometimes I have to bundle up so much that I can't move. I get a sweat finally going and hvae to strip down and then friggin freeze. most of the time I am wearing wool gloves in between sets to keep my hands warm. It takes a long, long time to get a 2 inch axle warm thats been laying outside in 15 degree weather.

    Hey have you tried the Prowler yet? I have an old wheelbarrow that I had been pondering on how to convert it. I find the sled dragging along with some light bodyweight exercises plus some bar drill to be the best warmup for me. I broke my makeshift sled the other night for the last time and I was just wondering about the prowler.

    Take it with a grain of salt, people are not always going to agree with one another's mindframe or thoughts on any one idea or notion. I'm a practical, outspoken person and if you consider almost any of my other posts on any board i rep on the internet i am found more often than not to be constructive and encouraging in advice, suggestions, critiquing, or questions i might have in turn.

    I think this whole thread started off on a bad foot,
    That said, im sorry if i upset you, my post was more meant to poke a little fun at some of the posters ..ie ..

    we are lifting in our garages sheds and basements away from you 24 hour fitness losers. most of us warm up with what you fools lift for your top sets. hey fab one do you ever do one arm barbell curls? f**king brutal man.
    Who were very obviously making no efforst themselves to be relationable (and really, just being a str8 up jackass). My post wasnt meant to implicate everyone and definitly NOT all who utilize power lifting as their staple in training - i think it has as MUCH merit, as bodybuilding, conditioning, flexibility, sports training, etc.

    To each their own, ive lots of respect for people who train with warm up sets that i use for my top sets! But, I dont mind a little retaliation if they are going to say it insultingly as well.

    Thats cool man. Like I said, I ain't trying to champion anything over something else. I just do what I do and shared it with some folks that were interested in this kind of thing. anyway no harm done, thanks for an honest response.

  11. Thanks, glad we could bury the hatchet bad blood is no good! Much respect sir.

Thank you for your time and good day.
    I'm probably 30lbs lighter than you and can DL more than that 15-20 times, and I did that all with a BB'ing style workout. Thanks for the contribution though.

    I actually just got the Dinosaur Training Handbook though and find it somewhat interesting. Not my thing necessarily, though.

I was refering to the lightweights who spend more $$ and time on supps and gym memberships than on food and pig iron. but sorry to get you youngsters all riled up.

    dino training huh? what I take from it is you are basically using compound exercises correct?

    yes. nothing different really other than some odd off hand lifts and odd object work. DT is where most of your GPP with sandbags and stuff like that comes from.

    Kabuki is a monster.

    Dinosaur training is more about a mindset than anything. Its just about getting back to the basics and working them hard, and not being pulled here there being distracted by things that are worthless to your goals of being stronger and bigger.

    After I read this thread I did some one-hand Barbell curls. There are my new bicep exercise.


    Where can I get a copy of "dinosaur traning"?

  17. Ironmind may sell it if I'm not mistaken. Here is you one to try.

    Take a regular olympic bar and hammer curl it. Its a job. You can turn it into a hammer curl press combo.

  18. hey guys just trying to keep this thread going and also admit that my first comments were a little on the harsh side. to each his own. by the way check out www.oldtimestrongman.com for some really good info on hard training with less science. it doesnt need to be as compicated as some make it. i am merely trying to "enlighten"folks by taking a look back in time when guys were very strong and healthy and didnt really have much in the way of supps and anabolics.that said, anyone else try vertical bar deadlifts for time? i use an old olympic sleeve removed from the bar. load it up and pick it up. fun stuff!

  19. wow thats impressive...gonna have to add some one arm snatches and see how i do

  20. Quote Originally Posted by krogtaar View Post

    they are a fun lift to do occasionally. I've never worked them more than 2-3 week at time, and I've actually done them very little.

    honestly they are fun to see someone do them, but don't let stuff like that distract you from plain old squats, presses, rows, and deadlifts with the foucs on being adding weight to these movements everytime you can. Thats where the meat is.

  21. Do you guys do much benching in dino training? It's a good upper body exercise, I don't think it's actually that functional. Since I started doing strongman stuff, I've concentrated almost solely on standing overhead pressing.

  22. I benched tonight. Don't get caught up in that functional or non functional nonsense. thats just someone trying to sell something for the most part. Benches has just as much importance in a program as any other lift. If your sport is strongman just make sure you have a good balance between the two and you should some nice carryover. It seems like if my benches and push presses go up most all other presses or jerks do also.

    I disagree. There's only so many pressing variations that I can do per week because the log press is pretty tough on the bod so I don't spend too much time on benching. It also can decrease shoulder flexibility which is a crucial part of my technique.

    The "bod" huh, ok.

  25. Haha, nice catch, smidgester.

  26. well don't, what else can I say? If it don't work for you stay away from it. I get overhead carryover from a strong bench and carryover from a push press into the bench, but thats just me.

    If you are worried about it tightening the shoulders, just follow your log work with a few hard sets of full range dumbell work for a good pump, if you want it, if not screw em.

  27. Thanks for posting the videos. They gave me a bunch of new ideas for training. I had been mostly doing squats, deads, bench, and power cleans.

    so what about the people who do many of the same lifts that you do at a gym? we are pu**ys because we take supps and workout at a gym? this might be hard for you to believe but some of us get increased motivation from being at the gym and seeing people that are bigger and stronger than you. i'm not trying to put down your style but its ignorant of you to come on here and put down other peoples styles

  29. uuuhhhh, i do believe i made my apologies for some of the stuff i spat out earleir in this this thread so calm down ok? i live in so cal and the gyms around here dont let you do deads, dont have trap bars or kegs and sand bags, wont let you use chalk,and generally frown on anything that might scare the fitness crowd. and i never said i was bigger and stronger than everyone but i definitly have more all around strength and conditioning than the guy who spends his entire session in the smith machine or leg press. all of my training is done in the garage or outside and i train only for practical reasons. i work construction i am 39 years old and can out work out lift out last and will probably out live the majority of guys i know. so there hahahahaha. now leave me and my dino training alone, back to bally's you go now c'mon.

  30. If I do Dino Training, do I have to listen to the Barney theme song on my ipod? LOL Just messing with ya. You are crazy with those one arm BB presses!
