A bit worried

Tweaked my hamstring a bit yesterday and was feeling it a little bit on bodyweight squats today. Only a bit troublesome, but bothers me enough to be worried about my training for the next few weeks. Oh well, be smart Dan.

Shoulder dislocates + thoracic mobility

Bench Press
45 x 5
95 x 5
135 x 5
185 x 3
205 x 3
225 x 3
245 x 1
265 x 1
270 x 5
240 x 10 - Getting better here. Best back when benching was more important(college 3 years ago) was 275 x 7 - getting back

Weighted pullup
BW x 3
45lbs x 3
70 x 3
90 x 6 - New PR - only did one set since I did ninety billion pullups last week and blew my elbows into oblivion.

5 rope climbs @ 15ft. / 21 ring dips / 50 bodyweight squats - 3 rounds for time.

Strength is coming along slowly and steadily, pretty happy with that. Adding in the strongman stuff is definitely taking a toll on my body. More tired throughout the day and more lethargic going into workouts. I am hitting some decent numbers coming back and happy with the progress so thats good. Hudson Valley strongman is September 18th and I've gotta be ready! the events are:

Max Axle clean and press
Conan's wheel 650lbs for distance
Max 18" deadlift - last man standing wins starts at 450lbs
Medley of: 250lb keg walk and load, 250lb keg walk and load, 275lb power stair, 300lb power stair
Stones 240, 275, 310 330 360 I think all different heights.

Conditioning is still very good. Taking tomorrow off and having an awesome event/metcon day saturday with some friends. Pretty pumped. oh ya, my gym's getting some concrete flooring not this saturday but next. I'll get some photos up once its all put together.
