      just trying to see where i'm at with the singles strength wise since training has been sporadic

      strength still decent at these, 7 sets to get to 100

      plan to get some good training in this week, finally have a few days off before i head out to oil city, pa this weekend for their contest...been incredibly busy the past few months, between promoting 3 contests in 3 months and helping judge/score keep/help in 2 others, plus work, moving to a new house, etc, things have finally slowed down some and plan is to get training back on course for a comp in late summer

      basketball game tonight, so that'll be the cardio for the day, other than that have been getting 30 mins a day in on the elliptical

            735x3, ended up being like 20 second holds at the top

            Tuesday:
            Decided to do some atlas stone loads last night even though by lower back hasn’t been feeling all that great. 330 stone to the 48″ platform for 2. A PR for me, don’t know how to explain it either since I didn’t expect much going into training. Wanted to hit some shoulders too so I did some Z presses and rest paused them 95lbs for 28 rest paused. About 2 weeks of training left till Steel Valley Strongman Comp that I plan to compete in, which is slated for October 9th. Ran through the keg carry earlier in the week, no problem there. Plan is to run through the farmer’s event this weekend and also the pressing event.

            Squats later today

              Deadlift needs work. Did some deads today, hip felt better so figured why not. Warmed up to 475 and hit that easily. I added a measly 25 pounds and hit a wall! The start of my deadlift is just not happening, no pop. Went and did some deficit deadlifts then instead. Went up to 405 for 5 reps of 3 sets. I think this is the route I'm going to go up until contest time, at least one more session of the deficit deads and then after the comp, focus on these for a good month or two. Also ordering a deadlift suit. Titan Velocity from www.BodysBestSupplements.com It's a custom order job. Not sure how many, but I'm sure it will take a couple of weeks to get here. Excited for that to get here and a goal of mine is to compete in a powerlifitng comp in 2011.

                write-up from this past weekend's Steel Valley Strongman contest in Austintown, OH:

                Wow what a day. 5 hours out and 5 hours back on route 80 makes for a long day, let alone competing in a strongman contest, but hey it’s what we love to do. This was my first contest in over a year’s time. Great show and met a bunch of new people, which is always good.

                First event – log press – 240lbs
                Have never been good at this, never. Being 6’7 with really long arms doesn’t help matters either. Never even cleaned 240lbs with a log before. Mission accomplished there. The press of the 240 is going to need a lot of work though, barely budged it. 0 reps

                Second event – Farmer’s Walk – 260lbs per hand, 50 feet down, turn and 50 feet back. Knew I could make up some ground here. 3rd best time here I believe. Happy to finish with out a drop, since hadn’t trained farmer’s since last contest I did.

                Third event – Keg Carry – 170, 200, 200lb kegs – carry 50 feet and run back once per keg. Most medley type or carrying events i usually do good in. This one my feet got ahead of themselves on the 2nd keg of the 3 keg run and slipped briefly costing me some time.

                Fourth event – Monster Dumbbell press for reps – 150lbs. Cleaning the thing was not a problem. Trying to balance the thing was another story! By the time I got it balanced ready to press, my energy was spent!

                Fifth event – 550lb Deadlift for reps – straps and belt only, no suites allowed. Never deadlifted this much weight from the floor before. First one flew up and kind of suprised myself, second one too, attempted a third rep, but that wasn’t happening, at least on that day.

                Sixth event – Medley, flip 500lb tire 50 feet, load 230# stone, drag 500lb sled 50 feet. Was really hungry by this point. The venue had huge signs of food all around them and one in particular (uhum taco bell) was staring right in front of me all day long. Just a little added bonus to finish, so i could go get that 12 pack of tacos for the ride home!
                Will did a great job putting on his first show. He had a lot of good people helping all day long. Time for me to keep working on over head pressing, which if i can ever figure out, will help me tremendously in this sport!

                  Fall is definitely here! With the cold weather approaching, the winter always is a fun time for knee and ankle joints I got some new grip tools in the mail from www.grip4orce.com I received the “regular” and “solid” kind I believe they are and used them in training today for the first time.

                  Since this past Saturday I hit a pr with the 550 x 2 deadlift in competition, I wanted to get back at it today and 560 for a smooth single, tried 580 but just couldn’t lock it out, next week though! I used the “regular” grips today just for some barbell holds. 245lbs on the bar, felt like 555lbs on the bar! Now it’s more than likely because I rarely, if ever train my grip. I did 5 sets of 15 second holds. Tried to hold longer but hands kept cramping up. I expect the time to increase as it use them longer of course. If anyone reading this wants a pair, get in contact with me, because i can get them at a discounted rate compared to their website. Some core work and tried hanging from a chin-up bar with the grips, boy was that fun!

                  Also working on adding an equipment company to teambix. Just want to provide an avenue to get quality training gear at a discounted rate for you guys. Stay tuned for more details.

                    Nice job on the competition Kyle!

                      Deadlifted again today and worked up to 590# for a single today. Progressively getting better. Want to get 600# by next week. Some OH stuff this weekend and maybe events.

                      Working on putting together another contest for January. Will be an indoor venue, about 10,000 square feet inside. Want to get more than strongman going this time. Hopefully I'll be able to add some type of martial arts and powerlifting to the mix and make it a "strength" day of all sorts.
