» Opinion on knee & elbow sleeves (Go to post)27-12-2014 @ 22:17 
Nice one for getting back to me guys. I did want more than just warmth from them. I do compete so they would be used in that as I don't like knee wraps so that would be annoying about the Odins ... I'll have a think.

Any other knee/elbow sleeves that you guys would recommend?

I'm wanting to invest a new set of knee and elbow sleeves. Currently use the strength shop Thor knee sleeves but don't own a pair of elbow sleeves. I'm looking to get them for strongman primarily.

I've narrowed it down to either the SBD, rehband powerline of the strength shop Odin (triple ply) sets. Just wondered if anyone had experience with any of them and whether they thought one was better than the other. Cheers

Hard day of work today & didn't exactly feel fresh squatting + my leg strength is the thing which has been effected worst by my food poisoning. It was also like a sauna in the gym. But anyway, I still got done what I wanted too & I didn't pussy out!

Was going to do more, but I'm going to save my main effort for Sunday.

Hey everyone, I'm a new member to the forums. This is going to be my training log and motivation to compete later on this year and hopefully I will be able to converse and receive criticism whether it be negative or positive to improve my lifting and performance in future.

Slight back story;- got back from Orlando Florida on Monday (27/05/13) and had the displeasure of having food poisoning on the way back, which was hell. This has really effected my strength and I'm only just starting to feel better again after 4-5 days, in which I lost around 1 stone/7 kg in Bodyweight from not eating anything. While I was in Orlando however I got a chance to meet Jo Jordan & Brian Schwab who were two of the nicest guys ever and awesome powerlifters and Orlando Barbell is a really cool gym.

The plan now is to get back to where I was before I left and up my game before I do a strongman contest end of this year and then into next year. I've decided for the time being, my training will consist of a STRENGTH DAY, with squat, deadlift & bench on it, with some abdominal and hamstring work. A BODYBUILDING DAY, with higher reps and sets and try to add back some muscle which I lost and finally A ENDURANCE/GPP DAY, to bring back some of my stamina which has been zapped (sandbag/sled drags, KB swings, rehabilitation work and some cardio). Ill alternate these days until I feel I can go back to my normal split of deadlift/bench/squat/events & oberhead over Monday/Wednesday/Friday/Sunday, like I did before holiday.

Some of my best lifts before I went on holiday which I hope to get back to are 150kg bench x 1, 180kg squat x 5 (/w belt), 260kg deadlift x 2 (/w belt) & 200kg deficit deadlift x 6 (no belt) & finally 100kg x 3 clean & press - all done around 99-101kg Bodyweight.

So todays training (which I felt awful in);-

Friday 31/05/13
- Squat - up to 80kg 3 x 3 (no belt)
- Deadlift - up to 100kg 2 x 5, then 120kg 1 x 5 (no belt)
- Bench - 40kg/50kg/60kg/70kg x 6
- Decline sit-ups - 5 x 15 BW
- Band Leg Curls - 3 x 20

Terrible numbers but this literally was all I had and is a base to start from...
