Programming Strongman

PL/Oly lifts with herniated disc

Hi, guys. So a year ago I got a herniated disc in lower back. I have been back to lifting for a few months but upper body only. Really want to resume squatting, dling and even oly movements but even light weight bothers my back. Core strengthening haven't done anything tangible. I thought...

As you might expect, I start out with high volume low intensity and I end up in the...

He can bench only 155 lbs but somehow can military press, both feet together and with zero leg drive, 125 pounds. That is nearly 80 percent of his bench press and his...

Main lifts quicker/ Assistance lifts with slow tempo?

Is it a bad idea to do your assistance movements with an internationally slow temp if you do your main lifts with a normal tempo? Normal meaning quick but not explosive. My thought is that you are working the muscles more and stimulating the CNS less. Do any experienced lifters have thoughts?
