    I just had sushi this weekend at a conveyer-belt type place. Just grab what you want as it comes by. They didn't seem to be putting out the tasty stuff, and I left after 60 pieces. Had 100 last time I went.

    STRONGMAN TRAINING

    So it looks like my gym is going to do an unsanctioned event on 4/26 in San Mateo. We know the event sand have started training them specifically. A little sooner than I anticipated, but what the heck? My biggest competition is liekly my training partner Tony.

    Umm, what did we do today?

    Warmup
    C&P 115-155

    Axle C&P
    Up to 100kg (220)
    105kg I got the clean but couldn't quite press it out today.

    18" Deadlift
    light, up to #465 for a triple. Taking it easy, next week we figure out openers. Apparently it's a ladder you can start at any weight that jumps by 20kg per bar. Thinking I'll open mid-500s.

    Stone
    My very first time. We only lapped it today, goal was sets of 5 but I got 4 3 times. I needed tacky, couldn't get it at all without. #250 stone.

    Farmers/Front Carry Medley
    Up to #205 per hand for farmers (the contest weight) and about #350 for the front carry.

    So I've shamelessly scoured youtube and found what the top guy in my weight class (176-200) is doing:

    Axle C&P (contest: max weight, no failed reps or you're done) -I'm guessing he's got 240 cold, maybe 250. I have....220 solid and so far no 230. Hmmm.

    Farmers (contest: #215 per hand, 30 yds, zercher carry #335)- Looks like he's quick but I can be pretty fast with this too.

    18" Deadlift (contest: Max weight, #45 jumps from wherever you start)- Looks like he has mid 500s. I'm right there.

    Truck Pull (contest: ????, 30m no rope)- Who knows? I see he's trained pulling a car, we will do this at least once in the next few weeks.

    Atlas Stone Series (contest: 5 stones, 48", 200-320)- Looks like he can probably do all the stones. Used one for the first time todya, a #250. Seemed manageable with tacky.

    So I'm coming from behind, but I know where I need to go, should be interesting.

    STRONGMAN TRAINING

    ripped calluses, bruised sternum, bloody legs. Short session today.

    PC & Press, Axle Cleans up to 105kg. Partial Deads I had nothing, barely budged 535, which is wrong.

    Farmers with fat grips for 100'. Up to 225. When https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAFDA9yqBIcis mumbling obscenities at you, you get your ass moving.

    And Hussefelt Stone. 185 and 225. Can;t forget that, it was hard.

    4/4

    No time. busiest two weeks of my year professionally. But I need to do SOMETHING. So..

    Squat
    #31 3-year old, laughing and wiggling the whole time. Took Active rest on the 20s

    31 x 60 x 2

    60 reps are hard, even when it's just munchkin weight.

    STRONGMAN TRAINING

    Contest in 2 weeks Palo Alto, CA. If you live anywhere close, come check it out. We did a mock contest today

    Axle Clean & Press
    220 x 1
    224 x 1
    231 x 1 <-- PR

    Farmers/Zercher Carry Medley, 30 yds. each
    215/335
    28 seconds.

    18" Deadlift w/straps
    440 x 1
    484 x 1
    528 x 1 <--Might make my opener 510/520. 44# jumps from wherever you start.

    Prowler Drag w/harness (Truck Pull)
    We started with 4 plates per side and mostly did 3 plates. Not the same as a truck pull, but whatever. This event worries me because I think I have the quickness events down, but I don't know how to do this.

    Atlas Stones (200-320, 5 stones, 48" platform)
    First time ever. 60 seconds.
    250 x 8

    I could have done more, I was not gassed. I will go balls out in the contest. It will be neat to see how different 320 is.
