Feeling pretty good about training today. I came in feeling strong.
I increased the weight for the speed yoke, and it was much more challenging. I still felt fast, but I had to work much harder for it. I’m really enjoying having yoke back in the rotation.
I added light farmers back to test this out. Farmers had been irritating the hip injury, especially with turns. I don’t plan to train turns for some time, but I’m glad to get my farmers back. They were super light, but felt good.
Then I had a bit of a strongman epiphany. Next competition has a wheelbarrow event. So, I flipped my yoke on its side and put it on the prowler. Then I laid a barbell across the yoke and used the side pins as handles. It was a challenge.
I finished up with some speed stone triples. I wanted to do the 18” 167, but after the extra work with the wheelbarrow, the lats were too tired to maintain a hold on the stone. I did redeem myself a bit by going up to the 135 stone for the last 3 sets.
A solid day and I’m looking forward to the next competition quite a bit.
