Thanks for the info on the split jerk. Interesting that you deliberately avoid bar/axle jerking whilst jerking the log. Definitely something for me to work on. I've seen Porter's vids - very impressive!

Good to see you attacking one of your weaknesses with the bearhug grip keg carries. Some of the guys I compete against could do with following suit...

Tuesday, January 3rd - 5/3/1 Log Press (week 3)

I was due for this training session on Monday, but I woke up with a nasty head cold. I get sinus infections often due to my nasal passages being all screwed up, so I decided to rest and not waste a workout. Came back in on Tuesday feeling great and ready to hit a PR.

12" Log Clean and Press (clean once)
Worked up to 140.9 kgs / 310 lbs x 4 (rep PR). Opted for clean once to save my back for deadlifts on Wednesday.

Seated DB Press (no back support)
4 sets 10-8 reps, worked up to 31.8 kg / 70 lb dumbbells x 8

DB Side Raises / Seated DB Cleans
3 sets 15-12 reps

Weighted Dips
3 sets 12-10 reps, worked up to BW + 60lbs of chain x 10

Wednesday, January 4th - ME Deadlift

Deficit Deadlifts - bar set as low as possible, just enough for me to slide my feet under the bar
Worked up to 252.3 kgs / 555 lbs x 1 (13.6 kg / 30 lb PR), then did a down set with 227.3 kgs / 500 lbs x 5. Went beltless on all sets, but used straps at 500 lbs and up.

Yoke Walk - all sets beltless
327.3 kgs / 720 lbs x 27.4 meters / 90 feet
350 kgs / 770 lbs x 27.4 meters / 90 feet (beltless distance PR)

Friday, January 6th - ME Bench

Close Grip Floor Press (index on smooth)
Worked up to 152.3 kgs / 335 lbs x 3 (rep PR), very pleased with this because I used an even closer grip than I normally use.

how do you like your dumbell pressing, as an accessory? much benefit to overall pressing vs barbell?

Monday, January 9th - Overhead

Got sick on Saturday and didn't have a chance to get my 4th day of training in. After 3 weeks of heavy log press, I figured I'd switch things up with a little dumbbell action.


Circus Dumbbell Press
75 kgs / 165 lbs x 4 (2 right, 2 left)
79.5 kgs / 175 lbs x 4 (2 right, 2 left) - rep PR
84.1 kgs / 185 lbs x 1 (0 right, 1 left) - weight PR
Video - http://youtu.be/B5A51Aupjx8

Felt awesome about the 84.1 kg lift! Huge PR! Missed the weight 5-6 times with my right hand, then nailed it by my left on the first try. Funny considering my left is my weak side...

Band Suspended Strict Press
4 sets 8 reps, two danging 25lb plates on each set

Dumbbell Rows / Band Pullaparts
4 sets 12-10 reps

Fat Rope Pushdowns
3 sets 15+ reps

Wednesday, January 11th - Squat

SSB Box Squat w/ +90.9 kgs / +200 lbs Band Tension - all sets beltless
Worked up to 206.8 kgs + 90.9 plus kgs / 455 lbs + 200 plus lbs of band tension x 1. It's official that my new favorite exercise for building brute strength is heavy safety bar squats with tons of band tension, beltless!

14" Rack Pulls - right at my sticking point, beltless
252.2 kgs / 555 lbs for 3 sets of 5

Dumbbell Reverse Lunges
4 sets 8 reps per leg, working up to 45.5 kgs / 100 lb dumbbells.

GHR's / Donkey Calf Raises
3 sets high rep

Strength is on point - bodyweight is climbing and I'm smashing PR's that I was hitting around Nationals prep. Training has been focused and nutrition on point. Heading back to school this week, I'd love to go back with a U90KG BSM invite!!!
