Btw, great numbers Adam. Haven't done too much testing with a lot of the strongman implements myself. Gotta get up there!

Quite impressed by the yoke and farmers.

If you haven't already this video series by Boris Bachman is great, he is very comprehensive and thorough.

Video #4 is about squat depth and bar position, about 5 minutes into the video is when he speaks about high bar and low bar squat depth. Check out his knees in relation to his feet in both styles as well as his "breaking" point.

Video 15 talks about the front squat:

Video 21 discusses "Sit back":

Hope these help.

Collected some training videos, I'd appreciate any advice.

Really had a hard time getting my hips into the stones - dead tired from cleans yesterday.

I'km the last person who should give pressing advice...these are just a few things i think abuot with the log... look up, like straight up, almost behind you... kepp elbows as high as possible....quick legs..thats about it, like i said i suck at pressing

stones--you can see where you try to arch your back..never going to happen with stones closer to 300...everyone ive seen who's good at stones, they look like an round back SLDL....
..those are my thoughts, nice work

Thanks dave. Yea, no tacky. Not into the whole cost/cleanup thing. I've used it once at a contest, and once in training. I figure that if I can get good with the stones w/o tacky, should be good to go when I use it contest time.

Adam, I know what you mean with looking up, elbows up. I've seen other guys at the gym do it. Makes sense, given the you can get more of a vertical drive, rather than pushing around your head.

Thanks!

I took some decent vids today, ill try and get them up in the next few days.
hit a 660 yoke for 50ft, 730 tire for 5 flips and a stand, stones singles up to 300.

Jacob-- if it helps, i have seen a few guys, and i mean 2, who were actually able to split jerk a 12" log, 1 being Misha K, the other being LW pro Kirk Nowak... i feel the PP/PJ is probably the best to learn.
