Just a quick update on everything
Offseason training has gone really well. I have managed to increase my strength alot while working on more endurance.
I split my workout like this.
Presses and upper body work
Deadlifts and other pulls with back accessory work
Squats with olympic lifts
Saturday or Sunday
I would do 3 increasingly “heavy” weeks and then rest for a week.
For example a usual event training day would consist of:
4-5×5 log press with all reps from the floor.
Farmers/frame medley with either a metal barrel sandbag or something to carry or drag for 4 sets.
Arm over arm or yoke or Farmers holds/tyre flips for 4 sets.
Sandbag loading or carrying for distance usually 4 sets of loading or carrying for 40m a set.
Most of the work was done within 60-80% range with few exceptions of when i tried to go for a max.
Now i am going to start working for more strength while trying to keep the endurance i gained this autumn. I really feel like i am going to be a serious contender next year if i stay healthy and don’t get injured. Literally every event just feels super strong right now.
Here is a short video of the clips i have. Shame i dont have more clips of event training. Merry Christmas to everyone!
