Did a strongman style comp today at local Show

Car Push for 25m
Loading weight onto 6 barrels
Carrying Handheld Mining machine 20m
tyre flipx5
Farmers walk with 7 20L drums

Time was 2.01. I was very happy with this considering best time was 1.46
Cardio was a big problem, lack of fitness. Strength wasnt an issue until tyres, and I found I couldnt get breath. Will have to work on Zercher squats for tyre and implement some cardio

Tried to post return workout on 11-9 but computer crashed. It has been 3 months since last workout, no good reason, just laziness and life got in the way of life...

Back squats
2x5@65, 1x5@95, 1x5@115, 1x5@125, 1x5@95
Squats felt OK but started to get difficult at 125, but after looking through log it seems that my previous working weights were around 140-150, so I am reasonably happy with that.

Military Press
6x3@65

Situps
4x20

Looking to start formal training soon.

.................................................. .....

Training today was light. Experimented with split cleans for the first time just out of curiosity. Was ok but bar was difficult to rack cleanly and unsure about foot position( same position as catching a jerk) Only used light weight.

Split Cleans
5x5@45

Jerks
1x5@45, 2x5@65, 1x5@75, 3x2@85
Felt able to transition into jerks easier after cleans, felt stronger in position than in the past. This could just be due to better warmup and technique.

Push Jerks
3x3@75

Situps
3x20

Body still feeling DOMS, but with split cleans, I was able to still do some training with little discomfort.
