On that high rep grind again. I hate rep deadlifts with a fiery passion, but since many deadlift events in strongman are reps for time, I need to get my ass in gear and get my motor up to speed on this stuff. The progressive deadlift in KY is going to be brutal if I’m not prepared. I struggled with the axle for reps today too, but I know it’s making my shoulders stronger and will bring me a better press come competition day. Anyways, here’s what went down today (plus photobombs):
Axle, from Rack
195x3x10 <-- may need to decrease jumps on warmups. Stretchers, a la Meadows 50x10 70x10 90x2x10 Ab Wheel BWx3x5 DONE. Skipped shrugs today because my back was already toast from earlier in the week and I wanted to have the best possible chance at a max yoke this weekend. Worked ok in hindsight, but I don't need to get in the habit of skipping exercises. In Saturday for events and stuff.
