Pull Monday: More Beltless Deads

STICKING to the program but keeping everything belt-less is really not working my legs as the weight goes up. My hamstrings were complaining a little with the volume and were fried by the time I got to the accursed glute-ham raise machine.

Rather than doing a triple of 270 next week, I’m instead going to top out sub-200 and do several sets of 5. But my deadlift will get stronger as my squat gets stronger, and now that I’ve pegged my loading and rep ranges, I can wrap up this interim programming and start pushing for PRs.

The next Strongman national qualifying round is two months away. I intend to pull a 310 deadlift, and attempt a 150 p/hand farmers walk, amongst other things. My yoke will suck, as it generally sucks, but even so, a 400 kilo yoke walk for the full distance is achievable, and not too shabby for me.

My press is my biggest worry though. I’m going to try for a 120 log (or axle) in about a month and a 70 kilo strict DB clean-press. I feel more confidant about the dumbbell than the log.

  1. of course like your web site but you need to take a look at the spelling on several of
    your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it
    very troublesome to tell the reality then again I’ll surely come again again.
