This is my decree
'We are our own worst inhibitors"
- Laird Hamilton
I made a decision today. I realized all the excuses I was making. I'll never be a pro strongman because x, y, z (too short, not willing to take drugs, insert bullshit excuse here). I'm removing all the crap and just allowing myself to get to where I want to be. No more crap. By the end of summer 2011 I'm going to be competitive at the top amateur/pro lightweight level. The progress I have been making lately when my head is in the right place has been astounding and makes me believe in myself. Here what I think I'll need to do to get there. Let me know what you guys think?
Axle Clean and Press - 350-360lbs x 1 (currently 300lbs)
Log Clean and Press - 330-340 x 1 (currently 270lbs)
Deadlift - 650 x 1 (Currently 500lbs x 4)
Farmers - 400lbs x 50' + (355/hand x 25')
Yoke - 950lbs x 50' + (800lbs x 50')
Stone - 400lbs x 3 reps (340 x 1, 310 x 3 @45")
Going to let my weight do what it wants to do with big eating. I'm around 185lbs at the end of a good eating day right now. I think I'll be capable of some big things when closer to 200lbs.
This is a huge goal for me and its going to be a sweet journey. let's release the brakes baby...
