I was wondering if you could critique this routine I doin for strength training.
Basically every 48 hours I lift.
Any tips would be great.

Travis, hope you are at the Arnold. I have a question for you. I started lifting weights 5 years ago and began powerlifting about two years ago. My goal is to venture my way into some strongman training as i believe it will make someone stronger mentally and physically more than just powerlifting. My question is should i wait to get stronger to start strongman training, or start now somehow? I'm 22 years old, 6'8'' 385lbs,
B 525ish, DL 675ish, Sq 650, and standing OHP 325ish. I train RAW as a powerlifter 3 days a week but found an interest in strongman lately. Just wanted to know a pro strongman's opinion as i dont think im that strong yet.

I am interested in getting into some of the amateur strongman competitions. I am a Marine and cannot bulk up too much. I am decently strong for my size, I bench 225X5, and can do 21 proper pullups. But I have joined a gym that actually has strongman equiptment. I am mostly a runner, at 6'0 182. It is my understanding that most competitions have a 187 pound class for strongman, and I was wondering what competitive stats would like for those events at an amateur level?

Hey, I know this is off the forum topic but I had a question for you. I pulled my lower back deadlifting about a month ago, so I took the month off only to re pull it last night, chiropractor, just says rest until you think you can which I did. Do you think its a form issue I'm having or because I've been lifting heavy in the 1-4 rep range for the past 4 months, also on the negetive portion of the lift do you lower the bar slowly to the ground wait for the sound and come back up or is it more of a drop?
