Following along.  I watch Silent Mikes series on learning the Oly lifts.  I lot more technical that they look on TV.

Strongman Saturday

Circus DB (lbs): 60x8/8, 70x5/5, 80x3/3
18Ē DL (lbs): 135x3, 225x3, 315x3, 365x3, 405x3
Farmers walk 30í : 145/hand x2x10

Happy with everything but the DL. The DB was easy and that is the weight for the next contest. Depending on the rules I might get 10. The Farmers were only 5 lbs lighter than the March contest and 10 sets of the 30í up and back. There were only 2 of us so it was like set after set. Barely time to catch your breath. One 50í trip should be OK. The DL sucked...I tweaked my left glute doing those frame DLís a few weeks ago. Every pull was literally a pain in the ass. I have done 505x3 from blocks. Even pulling on 455 hurt like crazy.

45 minute XC ski. Nice snow today. Freezing rain made a nice crust and it was fast snow. Let me go relatively easy and still move quickly.

Back Squat (kg): 60x5, 90x5, 102.5x5, 115x10 (253lbs)
1 Arm BB Snatch (kg): 30,35,40-,35,37 (81lbs)

Happy about the squats.  I was actually able to get them on my traps. Still canít get a great grip there, but at least it WAS there. Was tired and lazy (had a root canal yesterday @ 7:30), so I skipped the Metcon portion and decided to play with one arm BB snatches. I watched an old Britainís Strongest Man and that was actually an event in in it one year so I had been wanting to do it. It is a very difficult lift.....Here is the heaviest one I made.

Good workout. That quick Metcon piece was a beyatch. Jerks were good and crisp, no press outs.

Yep.  I'm fairly certain I'd break something if I were to try a one-handed BB snatch.  Maybe break myself too ;D  Way to make it look easy!

Yes, getting it out and back is 1/2 the workout.

Update:

Thursday:
Snatch (kg): 3x38, 3x44, 3x49, 3x49, 3x49
Spin Bike 20 minutes

Saturday: Mini Strongman contest at Quest in Cornwall Ontario.

I was the only 50+ so they just put me in the Open class but I got to lift the weights I was supposed to lift.  Gave me a bit of an advantage but was bummin I missed out on going with other old guys.

Car DL: 380lbs (no straps) - 26 reps - 3rd place.   I went last so I was actually hoping for 15 which would have gotten me 4th. Went 10 chalk up, 10 more, chalk up, that tied me for third, did 5 more just to be sure chalked up , then for some dumb ass reason did 1 more. 

Farmers Walk - 160/hand, 50' with a turn around a cone in the center. 20 seconds, 5th place.  Did OK but f'd up the turn.  We don't practice a turn and it got me.  The handles were 2" thick and smooth.  Those were tough to grip so I was actually not that upset.  Still in 3rd on points by one. 

Circus DB - 85lbs (had to clean each rep) - 11 reps - 1st place (tie).  I was hoping for 5 - 10.  The guy right behind me in 4th (awesome guy by the way) got 5 and was leading, so I knew 6 would get me top 3 on points.  Hit 5, switched to my left for a rep to let my right rest. Got 5 more.  had the 12th one on my shoulder when time ran out.  Guy in first overall tied me.

3rd place overall, won enough prize money to stop at Harvey's on the way back, pay the bridge toll and still have $10CD in my pocket when I got home. Obviously being old and small I had an advantage with lighter weights and 2 out of the three events were static, but I still was pretty happy with my performance.  Beat my goals for each individual event and feel my prep for it was pretty spot on.  next is either the lift for Autism in April (meh, long trip) and then first highland games in Mid May.
