"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

Last week i returened back to the strongman gym again, looking to take things to the next level and need the right enviroment and equipment.

As ever my focus is on deadlifts, overhead presses, everything else is just gravy.

My only pressing movement am doing is the viking press, alternating grips etc. The barbell, axle bar and log presses makes me light headed when the weight is on my chest, this isnt an issue with the V-press, can also use various tension resistance bands and negatives etc.

With the deads, the focus is farmers walk unit deadlifts, its high handles, but still well below my knee. Just feels better than the trap bar.

Currently training 4 days on / one off.

Workout A
Viking push press (parallel grip facing away from device)
Top set of 1-3, then 8
-------------------
Parallel grip chins
2 hard working sets x 8
------------------
Lying ez-bar tri extension
2 working sets x 8
-----------------------
Swiss bar Hammer curls
2 working sets x 8

Workout B
Farmers walk unit deadlift
Top set of 1-3
--------------------
Leg presses
2 hard working sets x 8
------------------
Heavy prowler pushes
2 circuits

Workout C
Viking strict press (overhead grip facing device)
Top set of 1-3, then 8
------------------------
Seated cable row
2 hard working sets x 8
----------------
Power pushdowns
2 hard working sets of 8
-----------------
Axle bar curl
2 hard working sets x 8

Workout D
Farmers walk unit deadlift
Top set of 1-3
------------------
Power shrugs
2 hard working sets x 8
-----------------
Weighted hypers
2 hard working sets of 12

No recovery issues as off yet, workouts are very "heavy", but short, adding a little weight to the bar / device each cycle is the plan.

When recovery becomes an issue, i'll switch to 2 one / 1 off, then every other day etc.
I'll get some training pics up in due course. Sis-in-law is back training with me, and well as a 34yo friend who's white collar boxer.
My BW crept up to 280lb over the winter months, i've brought it down to 275lb currently, i'll look to drop it more coming into the hotter months.

Rob


he mate, good to see you back....have you ever tried the starting strength program or the barbell prescription...its right up your alley

good job friend


Thanks Dan:)

Yeah ive looked into those and barbell logic, their not bad, i like the SS trainer Niki Simms. These days i prefer my own on programming though. Admittedly i went from machine elitism to barbell elitism. I like a combo now lol.

Hows the swing?

Great source of Inspiration for me at the mo. John Conner, 6'6 and 380lbs. Deadlifts and overhead pressing are his for forte. TBDLs over 1000lb and over 900lb with the barbell.

Made just a few alterations to the workouts, ive replaced workout B to zercher deadstart squats, leg presses and prowler, also switched the tricep pushdowns out for slingshot bench presses. On workout D, ive replaced the farmers unit deadlift for the regular barbell deadlift, and just reverse weighted hypers. Recovery isnt an issue.

Was quite worried for my training partner though, he was hospitalised with a clot in his leg on Friday, but hes on the mend, theyve removed it...the clot that is lol. Cause was varicose veins.
