Strength

 

Event day!

Log C&P every rep
220×1
245×1
265×1,5,5,6
Final set was timed and I got all six reps in 65 seconds
Keg Loads to 52″
275×1,1,5,5,8
Final set was timed at about 40 seconds. I still had a lot of gas in the tank, but I never train loading events to completely max effort.
Sandbag carries
260x 50 ft twice, 100 ft once and 110 ft once. This event sucks. Can’t stand it. And curse the human being who came up with the idea.

YOU MUST DO THE ACCESSORY WORK!

Since I started training with a purpose I have heard the same few comments over and over again.

“You have to get all your accessory work in” “Don’t lack on the accessory work” and when I am not hearing those comments I get asked about it. “What accessory work are you doing in your program?” “What accessory work will get me stronger?”

Now I am not going to sit here and debate if accessory work is important or not because we all know it is. I mean fuck, no one will let me forget it.  But somewhere along the way things got messed up. People started taking the “accessory” idea too far.   What ever happened to “Mastering the main lift”?

Stop worrying about your 4 sets of 70 % of your 26 max rep range and put the fucking work in! Strict Press for over an hour, Squat until your form starts to go, Deadlift until you’re seeing double!

Do your main work, work those main lifts and get good at them work them until you can make every set/rep light/heavy look the same. As Stevie Pulcinella would say “Master the Lift”, then add the other things to help the lift.

Do not make this more complicated!
