Day 1 of New Strongman Training Schedule: Overhead Strength & Explosive Work

Saturdays and Sundays are Days 1 and 2 of my new training schedule, taking advantage of access to the gym with plenty of strength and conditioning equipment and flexibility around work.

For Day 1 - the focus is on explosive and strength work for overhead pressing, as well as accessories for upper body. The accessories are kept light and no hard conditioning is done, since on Sunday I do deadlifts and squats and loaded carries for conditioning.
