Events Training: Back on Track

MUCH better performances generally today, compared with the week’s earlier sessions. I even managed a legit PR for reps on the axle deadlift. I didn’t walk with anything at comp weight today, coz I know when not to push it. But in the coming weeks I intend to work up to a 150 kilo p/hand farmers and, hopefully, a 415 kilo yoke walk for at least 15 meters.

The farmers picks I used today were the Aussie Strength variety, to save time (disassembling the Awesome As yoke is decidedly inconvenient when it’s just me training by myself), and they are a much lower pick to what’s used in competition. Doing 150 p/hand with these is going to be extra challenging.

There was a little energy wasted when, in a moment of innovative thinking (which for me, while gym-braining, doesn’t often happen) I set up a squat rack to pull my axle deads from. I later realised that the rack arms were not going to handle loading beyond 250 or so, so I had to dismantle it and resume pulling from blocks, like I had been doing during previous sessions.

My tendinitis flared up again today and put paid to any heavy overhead pressing I might have otherwise done. It’s log at the state finals, which I’m about as good at pressing with as the axle (that’s not very good) and I really need to focus more time on more intelligent programming for this aspect of my game. Conventional stuff which works almost everywhere else is not doing it for my press, and I could do with more intensive coaching, to get more familiar with the explosive and push aspects of the press. And I need to not bugger my elbows every time I rep something reasOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAonably heavy. It’s really fucking frustrating.

But, yes, on the whole today was positive. Soon I’ll be hitting new records on all events. And the plan will be to perform all the events that we will be doing at state finals, each afternoon. In some cases, especially as I adapt to the increased workload, not all 6 events will be done, or done to near-maximal ranges. Again, smart programming is needed so I don’t actually fry my CNS before the comp and blow my chances before October arrives.

And on that subject, heavy deadlifts this coming Monday might just be a bad idea. Of course, for specificity I could just train axle deads each time I pull, but I like to train my conventional deadlift because, well, the full movement is a better thing to train consistently than the partial movement. But I will ask my coaches and see what they have to say.
