Pull+ Tuesday: Easy, Tiger

I NEEDED to quit some sets on the last two accessory exercises tonight as my favoured tendon was feeling the strain of the last couple of sessions. No matter: all is still on track. This session was my last one using a 4 x 10 set/rep scheme. June is a four week block of 4 x 8, loading from 90 to 120 kilograms. Then July is a block of 3 x 10, loading from 130 to 160. Finally August is 3 x 8, from 170 to 200.

By the end of August I will be pulling 200 kilograms for three sets of 8. If everything goes according to plan, they will be performed from the same deficit I'm at currently, without straps, and double-overhand for as many reps as possible.

In other news, the spud truck pull harness arrived today! This is a highly valued piece of strongman training and competition equipment, and the
PTC Strongman crew are all keen to have a crack at simulating a truck pull; a massive event I am hoping to organise to coincide with the Static Monsters in late October.
