1  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Re: Looking for strongman workout on: November 10, 2010, 02:23:53 PM
There is no great template out there but there are a couple ways of going about it.

Some use a westside/events training hybrid schedule. It goes something like:
Monday - speed lower/max upper
Wednesday - speed upper/max lower (these days are interchangeable depending on your preference)
Saturday - Events day

That is obviously a lot of max work for one week, but it works great for the couple months before a show.

Others tend to simply do a 4-5 day schedule where gym lifts are the main focus and events are scattered in with appropriate muscle groups. You can use a log on shoulder day, side handle DL on leg or back day, and you get the point.

Hope this helps. If you would like to see more of what strongmen do in the gym, YouTube is a great source. Many strongmen post their workouts regularly.

Incredible progress! You had a lot left in the tank on bench and squat.


Very nice work!

any tips for increasing the poundage for this? mine has been stuck at the same weight for years  Sad

Work your sticking points like you would on bench. Also, warm up all muscles that help stabilize the weight in this movement. For example, I like to get a good lat pump and even do a little bicep work just because it makes me feel more solid, right before military/push presses.

Definitely had some left in the tank. Very clean and easy.


I'll just take my tiny numbers back to 24hr fitness where they're 'impressive'.  Grin

This guy has been plugging away at the amateur strongman circuit for years and has always come up just a little short of going pro. Now his focus is in RAW powerlifting and he is hitting some huge squat and DL numbers. Here are some lifts of his:

Gotta keep an eye on this guy in the future.

Nice work, Tom! Standing strict press is always humbling, isnt it?
14  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Re: What's y'all's opinion of... on: May 09, 2010, 07:27:15 PM
Its fine, just dont call yourself a 'powerlifter'. Its disrespectful to the guys who put in the work and effort on all 3 lifts. Even if you do push/pull its not complete, ya know? It fine to throw one in from time to time, but it would be like a 'strongman' coming in and doing their best event and leaving OR a bb'er running up and hitting one pose and feeling good about being 'one of the best up there'.


Not that it matter what anyone thinks. Grin
15  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Re: Log Pressing on: May 07, 2010, 08:48:35 PM
Thanks for the replies guys...so from the sounds of things if you never train on a log, just on a bar and enter a contest with that as an event I will probably embarass myself Undecided

Not completely. I used DB's with neutral grip for standing OHP for a while to simulate the log. The important part of simulating the movement is to LOCKOUT. This is where most people will have a hard time, just because they have never stabilized a weight, with that grip, extended completely overhead. Try it with DB's; it wont teach you the clean, but that part comes pretty naturally....until you try a max weight anyway. Good luck!

Oh and Magnus, thanks! Cheesy
16  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Re: Log Pressing on: May 05, 2010, 10:51:12 PM
Log is much more difficult when you first start using it, no doubt. When I started the log, I had trouble with 220 but could do a 275 oly bar.

Now I can do nearly the same on each. I have gotten 345 on a bar and 320 on log press. The log keeps getting easier for me and I should probably max out again.

For me, the log gets easier because I cannot get a bar to touch my shoulders, while the log sits perfectly in front of me.

Many people will never log press what they press on an axle or bar. It throws you off balance and is much harder to push your head through at lockout. Also, with the size of the log, it hangs the weight farther in front of you and is harder to jerk for this reason.

You really must give it a try though. Sure to humble any first timer.

Its been a couple months since logging anything, but I have hit a few PR's....

-655lb raw DL
-Push Press 315x5
-625 raw parallel box squat
-500x14 axle DL

I think thats it. Training has been good but diet is awful as of late. Back to 295lbs. Now that I have a break between competitions I will be cutting a bit. That is all.

What does DE & ME stand for?

Dynamic and Max Effort.

It is a good plan, but someone cannot just point out something and say "that wont work" because it just might for that person. Trial and error. Look and your log book and decide. Thats all ANY trainer can do (aside from avoiding 'overlap').

Glad to hear it!

Failing is okay, but for the few who injure themselves and then get crushed by the weight, this is ideal.

I thought of him just yesterday. I hope his wife and child are doing well. RIP Jesse.

They are doing well. Callie has been in a relationship with another pro strongman for a couple years (Nick Best). She still runs Marunde-Muscle.com and does personal training, as well as spin classes and such. Things are going well for her.
