    1 x 65 kg
    1 x 67.5 kg
    1 x 70 kg
    1 x 72.5 kg

    PR! Wasn't even heavy but I snorted too much ammonia so I wouldn't black out, got reckless, made an ugly pickup and press. Started getting dizzy at the top due to all this so I stopped. I know there is more there so this makes me happy.

    - seated db press:
    12 x 20 kg
    10 x 20 kg
    8 x 20 kg

    - plank:
    60 s
    45 s x 20 kg

    - deadlift:
    6 x 70 kg
    4 x 100 kg
    3 x 120 kg
    1 x 140 kg
    1 x 160 kg
    1 x 180 kg
    1 x 190 kg
    1 x 200 kg

    PR! I've been chasing 200 kg for a long time. 180 kg moved well. 190 felt really heavy and for a moment I doubted I would get 200 kg. But no way was I going to not get it. I put it on the bar and knew I had to get super tight and be patient of the floor. When it started moving it really slowed down around the knee, but all in all it wasn't that bad. Really happy about it.

    1 x 80 kg

    PR! I knew I was going to get this. Didn't like how the first attempt moved so I tried again but failed. Oh well. Once is enough.

    1 x 170 kg

    5 kg PR! Squatted to a proper strongman depth. My quads felt weak on 140 kg, but knee sleeves helped. Still need to improve my quad strength. Decided to play a bit with wraps after a long while. They weren't wraped tight to they didn't hurt like the first time.

    - shirted bench:

    0 x 115 kg
    1 x 110 kg

    Playing with friend's old Fury shirt which was several sizes too big, but it still added a few kg to my bench.

    Started Brian Alsruhe's Darkhorse program. More importantly I started training in my garage which I turned into a basic gym so I can have access to strongman equipment. Not everything went as I hoped with the program, but I will be fixing issues in the future. Also I trained at 8:30 AM instead of evening.

    - axle continental:
    10 x 3 x 50 kg

    10 min EMOM. Done the optional conditioning. I was outside so that made it interesting, but also unstable.

    - T-bar rows:
    5 x 5 x 50 kg

    Giant set 1. Maybe I'll try pull-ups instead.

    - axle press:
    8 x 20 kg
    3 x 40k g
    3 x 50 kg
    3 x 60 kg
    3 x 65 kg
    2 x 67 kg

    Giant set 1. I had 30 min to work up to a 3RM. Only managed to get to a double at 67 kg in 17 min. I wasn't resting enough fearing I wouldn't have enough time, but I should have rested more, there was time. Also, doing these on grass is tricky due to bad foot positoining. I'll do them slower nex time.

    - hollow rock:
    3 x 10

    Giant set 1. Almost forgot about these. I don't really like them.

    - burpees:
    3 x 5

    Giant set 1. Almost forgot about these too.

    I totaly fogot about backoff sets.

    - banded bench:
    3 x 20 kg
    10 x 3 x 40 kg

    Done with a doubled up red band. These were supposed to be woth 50 kg, but 40 felt slow enough with doubled up bands. Maybe I'll just loop it once next time or I'll stick to 40 kg.

    I was supposed to do sandbag to shoulderas my strongman movement, but my bag was leaking sand so I didn't. I will drop all sandbag work, until I get real sandbags.

    8:30 am.

    - burpee broad jumps:
    10 x 4

    10 min EMOM.

    - stiff leg deadlift:
    6 x 70 kg
    4 x 100 kg
    3 x 120 kg
    1 x 140 kg
    1 x 157 kg
    1 x 170 kg
    1 x 180 kg

    Giant set 1. Had 30 min to work up to 1RM stiff leg.

    - plank:
    7 x 60 s

    Giant set 1.

    - broad jumps:
    7 x 4

    Giant set 1.

    - stiff leg deadlift:
    8 x 145 kg
    5 x 145 kg
    5 x 145 kg

    Giant set 2. 10 min for backoff sets. First one had to be 5+ reps.

    - plank:
    3 x 60 s

    Giant set 2.

    - broad jump:
    3 x 4

    Giant set 2.

    - banded squat:
    3 x 20 kg
    3 x 40 kg
    3 x 70 kg
    10 x 2 x 85 kg

    Purple bands. These got me tired. I wonder if purple bands are too much tension.

    - yoke:
    4 x 15 m x 60 kg
    2 x 15 m x 100 kg

    Just a token yoke, I was quite tired by this point and the training had taken too long.

    Overall I was afraid this program didn't have enough volume, but with a daily RM to achieve and an AMRAP backoff set plus speed work, it' more than enough. Also, today's training had taken WAY too long. Almost three hours insted of and hour and 15 minutes as Brian says. I will probably skip the optional conditioning and train in the garage instead of in the yard, because the setup and teardown took a lot of time.

    - axle row:
    5 x 60 kg
    5 x 70 kg
    5 x 80 kg
    5 x 90 kg
    5 x 95 kg

    Giant set 1.

    - incline bench press:
    8 x 20 kg
    5 x 40 kg
    5 x 50 kg
    5 x 60 kg
    5 x 62 kg
    5 x 65 kg

    Giant set 1. This was very hard and disapointing. I knew my pec minor was... minor, didn't know it was nonexistent.

    Was supposed to do side hold for abs, but I couldn't balance the axle so I skipped these. Need a substitute.

    - mountain climbers:
    6 x 10

    Giant set 1.

    - axle row:
    3 x 5 x 95 kg

    Giant set 2.

    - incline bench press:
    12 x 52 kg
    10 x 52 kg
    9 x 52 kg

    Giant set 2. Last set was supposed to be 10 reps, but my minors gave up.

    - mountain climbers:
    3 x 10

    Giant set 2.

    - banded OHP:
    10 x 3 x 30 kg

    10 min EMOM. Red bands.

    - sandbag carry.
    45 m x 60 kg
    60 m x 60 kg

    Wasn't that hard, but the sandbag just kept slipping down.

    Today's training lasted about an 75 minutes as it should.

    - front squat:
    8 x 20 kg
    4 x 40 kg
    3 x 60 kg
    3 x 70 kg
    3 x 80 kg
    3 x 90 kg
    3 x 100 kg
    3 x 105 kg

    Giant set 1. These went great. Was hoping for a triple at 100 kg, but it felt light so I went for 105 and got a new PR.

    - ab pull-downs:
    8 x 10

    Giant set 1. With a black band.

    - jumping jacks:
    8 x 10

    Giant set 1.

    - fron squat:
    12 x 82 kg
    8 x 82 kg
    8 x 82 kg

    Giant set 2. These were a killer.

    - ab-pull-downs:
    3 x 10

    Giant set 2.

    - jumping jacks:
    3 x 10

    Giant set 2.

    - banded deadlift:
    10 x 1 x 100 kg

    With a red band. More band tension nex cycle maybe.

    - yoke:
    2 x 15 m x 60 kg
    8 x 12 m x 110 kg
    2 x 15 m x 130 kg

    Just trying to figure out the technique and which part of the yard I can run accross. Almost twisted my ankle on the first run.

    starting strength coach development program
    - pull-ups:
    48 total

    GS 1.

    - axle press:
    8 x 20 kg
    5 x 40 kg
    5 x 50 kg
    5 x 60 kg
    5 x 65 kg

    GS 1.

    - bandy twisty things:
    5 x 5

    GS 1. Red band.

    - burpees:
    5 x 5

    GS 1.

    - pull-ups:
    3 x 8

    GS 2.

    - axle press:
    12 x 52 kg
    2 x 5 x 52 kg
    2 x 5 x 52 kg

    GS 2. These killed me. Couldn't do unbroken sets of ten because of my poor conditioning. But I'm happy with 12 reps on the first set.

    - bandy twisty things:
    3 x 5

    GS 2.

    - burpees:
    3 x 5

    GS 2. I was seriously considering droppping abs and burpees. Insted of 10 minutes, backoff sets took me 16 minutes.

    - banded bench press:
    10 x 3 x 55 kg

    Red bands single loop. Not much band tension. Bench press kills my shoulders and wrists, and I'll be glad when I finish this program and drop it.

    - sand bag walk:
    60 m x 60 kg
    30 m x 60 kg

    I need quality sandbags.
