Same here, event training is like warm ups and conditioning stuff. hitting Dl/Sq twice a week, one max effort day and one day for speed squats and speed pulls

Nice video. Your push jerks looked great to me?

Liked the overhead yoke walks, haven't tried those.

Out of curiosity, have you tried doing your tire flips with a wide grip, narrow-ish stance, rather than a sumo stance? The reason I ask, is that I was taught to use a wide grip (reference: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PLlV... F642D&index=1, not me). But I've seen plenty of people do it other ways. I'd like to see how people feel about different styles of flipping.

Looks like you've put a lot of work into your overhead - log looked strong. Stone picks looked easy!

I know the Diesel crew states theres only one way that one should flip a tire and its more of the "pushing a football sled flip"....i have found that flipping a tire is tread/weight/ traction dependant.

Log is my enemy, never gotten above 240 training, 220 contest...i hate it.

How much does that tire weigh?

In your gym video it says "This video contains an audio track that has not been authorized by all copyright holders. The audio has been disabled. More about copyright"

What is the purpose of the GM/DL? I've never seen that variation of the GM.

Very nice both in the gym and the event work.
