OHP, worrying about triceps injury *unloading* weight

Hi all, I'm not a strong person at all (in fact never strayed into this section before) but I figure since this section covers strongman there should be a bunch of you with a good press who can advise. I've been working on my weak press with the goal of pressing my own bodyweight this year...

How I Increased my Bench Press Max by 25 lbs in 4 days

So this may sound a bit far fetched or even crazy. However, I watched a video on youtube titled how I increased my bench by 30 lbs in 4 days and I have been watching Uplifter who is a skinny Asian American man (153 lbs with a max bench of 410 lbs). I incorporate their training methods and the 25 lb...

Programming Strongman

I tried to look up programs but basically everything I found was basically a regular power lifting program but with a day for events. The main reason I got into strongman recently is that I kinda fell out of love with the gym in general, and the event stuff is so damn fun. So I basically have...

Calling out 81ort (Travis Ortmayer)

Not really calling out. Heard he is looking to compete again, was wondering if he still posts. Looks like he will compete in the “world strength games” in April 2020. Not even sure what those are but sounds like a strongman/pl event.

Strength loss On squats switching to flat shoes

Been dealing with nagging patellar tendoniitus especially on squat days. One of my potential solutions is to switch from my romaleos to flat shoes (chucks). So I tested it out today on my heavy deadlift day. Put 315 on the bar (I can get 9 reps RPE 9 at this load) and with flats felt pretty...

Question 275-> 300 in 3 months?

So I’ll keep it short. I’m a senior in high-school and my bench is currently 275. It’s been my goal to hit 300 before I graduate for two years now. Do you think I can make it? And if so I’d love any tips from very experienced lifters. ( I’m 6’2 180 lbs) Oh and also I graduate in 3 1/2 months

My form blows, long femurs, help

I’m 5’8.5” 139lbs, and am trying to gain strength and mass. I’ve been lifting for a good while, on and off, but have never really been good at the squat. I started gslp recently, with my main focus being focusing on form with compound movements. My question is, how does one squat with long femurs?...
