Week 1, Day 2 - Log Clean & Press (VIDEO), Chest, Shoulders & Arms

I'm currently training for USS "Hope for the Holidays" strongman push/pull competition in December. I'm working with Mike Mastell and training focus is strength with some hypertrophy emphasis.


-This session felt good. The log felt a bit rusty and my technique/timing felt a bit off. The weight was pretty light though, so I'm excited to ramp things up in the upcoming weeks.

-The rest of the work I just trained like a bodybuilder and really tried to feel the muscles working.

-Rest was 2 minutes on log and incline DBs

-Rest was 60-75 seconds on everything else
