Wow, last post in February? I've been slack!

Daily Training Photo
This has unfortunately taken a break. I ran out of new photos to post. In hindsight I need to get a stock of photos prior to starting this up again. Aiming to get this back up and running in July, so in the meantime if you have a training photo to submit, check out the instructions on the forum here.

Training Summary
There has been some great training going on by the members on the forum. A few are training strongman stylee, to compete in the UK Strength and Power Meet held at Crossfit Reading. Check out the following video of member keyser_soze throwing stuff overhead:

I'm currently following The Juggernaut Method E-Book by Chad Wesley Smith. It's got similarities to 5/3/1 by Jim Wendler and thus far I am enjoying it very much, as I'm able to combine strength training with power (jumps & sprints), conditioning (hill sprints) and skill (bouldering). It's also the first time I've opted to program my training without fitting all lifts into one week - I'm doing four main lifts (bench/press/squat/deadlift) but only three within a week, to allow for much needed rest days.

Twitter has it's own Twitter Page. Still trying to get the hang of it!

Equipment Guides
I still have some outstanding homemade equipment guides to write up, including a sled for sprints, a glute ham raise platform and an isometric device. These will all follow over the coming weeks/months, so keep an eye out.

That's it for now. Hopefully the next post will not take three months to write ;)
