Strongman WOW-2 – Farmers Walk & Axle Press
Farmers – start off with a comfortable weight, doing picks only (lifting off the ground and standing for a few seconds). Add more weight until you reach a weight that is near failure on your pick. You should add weights so as to get about 5-7 sets of picks.
Once the “max” comfortable weight is determined, reduce it by 30% and begin 50-80 foot runs with them. Include a turn if you are using 50’ as the distance. Be sure to keep track of this weight for next time you do farmers.
Axle press – start with a very comfortable weight that you know you can clean and press easily. Practice your continental clean with this weight. Working about 5-7 sets …3-5 reps each set. Sets 8 & 9 increase the weight by about 10% and do two reps two sets.
