Greetings all. I'm new here and this is my first post (duh). My goal is to enter my first strongman competition as a lightweight amateur in Junish of 2006.
This actually started with some simple keg throws and sled drags on the weekend and then went to tire flips, farmers walks, and next week we'll add dragging my Buick. So, as you can see I don't have much equipment but I do have full access to a gym, so how would some of you recommend that I plan my training in the gym to maximize my results for strongman competitions? At the moment my training is centered around bench, push press, deadlift, and squat.
More specifically how should I periodize my training and what sort of parameters in conjunction with exercise selection should I use? I have a bit of Brad C's workout advice as far as exercise selection but I'd like more information to work with. My Sunday workout is farmers walks, tire flips, car pulling, sledghammer swings, and keg throws.
Thanks in advance.
