Background: I've been training pretty solid now for awhile. As everyone knows life gets in the way here and there so training doesn't always go as consistent as I would like it too. I have done a few different programs, but mostly done my own programming. I had a log up somewhere on here but I can't find it now. I was doing GST, better known as Growth Stimulus Training. It is a good program but eventually not for my goals. I did a short stint of Starting Strength, and made great gains of it like its designed to do. Because of form issues in my squat I had some slight knee pain issues. I have since made two trips out to the EliteFTS compound. Once in May and once in the beginning of October. I have learned a lot and am back to doing my own programming again. To try keeping this short I'll get to the point, the first time I went to the compound we did a short amount of strongman and I got hooked. I got in touch with a guy who lives about a half hour away from me who rents a place and has a lot of strongman equipment. I did my first comp this year and did terrible lol. I have four comps I am wanting to do next year, maybe five if a super small one happens.
Current Lifts: Dead, Squat, Bench where all either mostly tested or fully tested in Ohio
Strict overhead est 145
Log press 165
My lifts are nothing special, and my overhead is probably the worse in my opinion, but my events are what matter the most.
I am trying to train at least 3 times a week. 4 would be awesome but doesn't seem to happen. I usually do an event day once a week, one day focused on overhead, one on squat, one on speed benching. Part of the event day is usually some sort of deadlift.
I will be posting in here all my training as much as I can, and I'll post my last week or two right after this as well. Any input on anything would be greatly appreciated.
