Leeds isn't too far from me mate.

Let me know when your home set up is complete and I'll pop down for a session if your game?

Yeah that would be good mate. it wont be quite the standard of your set up tho but would be good to have a blast with someone who knows what there doing to push me!
How far from leeds are you

Elbow problem sounds like it could be the same thing that I suffer with. Golfer's elbow (Medial Epicondylitis), which IME is caused by low bar squats. Google it and see what you think.

Ok cheers mate.will have a look.its a bas***d as it flares up every 3 months or so and stops me pressing altogether!

Kinda crappy workout with my brother today, I am still physically shot from the comp, lower back sore from leaning back on the stupid safe press, and pulled glute from the deadlift a bit. Sore lats, upper back and pec (what, why?)
So I did wanky s**t.
Like bench!
75x2, utter s**te.
80x1 meh

some push press and strict press with 50k and 60k, just a bit of work. Feel bollocked however! Better next week Happy

failed reps take a lot more out of you than completed, it seems

I get sore lats from overhead pressing mate, especially push press so it may have happened with you on the safe press.
I dont know why though.
Comps take a lot out of you. I didnt train after mine for a week and half!LOL

After the way you hammered out 7 reps at the northern qulifier with some of them not even requiring leg drive i wouldnt worry about the session jonny.

Very impressive as i can appreciate the problems faced with being taller with longer arms!

Enjoyable session on the front squats.only been doing them a month instead of back squats so PBs should be coming again.

Power cleans - were a first for 4 months and enjoyed them, really want to grt up there with the weight.

Push Press - Kept it very light as my elbow has been shagged for three weeks which has stopped me pressing completely. The pain is right on the outside tip of the elbow on the tricep side of the bone and its agony just to the touch, never mind pressing.
Anyone had this problem as im baffled and doctor isnt even sure!?
SS healthfoods - Met-Rx protein. Slightly more than 10 a kilo but good stuff and tastes great.

As for any other supplements - GET A BLENDER!

You can make anything you want, pre or post workout shakes, casein shakes before bed, morning shakes, all with good old fashioned food.
Loads of options to make some tasty shakes that do a better job than the s**t these companies pack into tubs and then sell at 1000% profit.

Hello Everyone

Decided that now is the time to put my training log on here so any advice and help would be very much appreciated as im new to all this strongman lark.

Been training for a few years and built up my three main lifts (squat,bench and deadlift) to a standard i deemed fit enough to enable me to compete in my first strongman competition which was the Englands strongest man u105 northern qualifier.
Had 5 weeks strongman training prior to the competiotion and placed 12th but was a bit dissapointed not to have placed higher, but all great experience and enjoyed meeting all the guys who competed.

Currently got a lower back injury which i picked up 10 weeks ago deadlifting so im giving it a bit of rehab and laying off the deadlifts and trying to work round it.Been really pissing me off and been getting lazy with the training so hopefully this log will get me motivated and get my arse back in the gym and get better.

Plans this year are to do another competition and my long term aim is to qualify
for engalnds strongest man u105kg 2010.

Currently live and train in leeds at Ralls Gym and also in the process of setting up my own strongman training area at home. Got farmers,axle and log and stones are arriving soon.

Cheers for reading another training log introduction from another wanabe strongman
and hope to hear from you guys so my arse can be kicked back into shape!

» Back injury- strengthening core etc (Go to post)10-04-2009 @ 10:12 
Ive just started doing them with a loose belt on,and my back does feel a bit better.

Doing back squats is a no go with my back, but fronts feel fine so will keep them up!

Ive just been to the physio who has got me doing stretching twice a day for my lower back which seems to help me.

May be usefull for you JD as your problem sounds very similar to mine
» Back injury- strengthening core etc (Go to post)09-04-2009 @ 22:13 
is it best to wear a belt to front squat when trying to strengthen your core as im in the same boat as JD
