Decided to do some strongman type training/conditioning today as i figure i'm getting strong enough to start working on this type of training once per week on top of everything else i do..

Sand bag stuff: Loading (onto the bins!) 6 sandbags from 60kg to 120kg. did this 3 times, loading then unload and started again, just to warm up etc.

Farmers walks with dumbells: Up and down my back yard (about 30ft) 10 times, with 55kg DB'S.

Deadlift carry: 120kg. 5 times up and down the yard, then held the bar for 30 secs before dropping it. (grip fail)

Overhead Walk: 60kg. 3 times up and down the yard. this was a killer!

Bar carry: (in squat position) 80kg 5 times up/down yard. turning was interesting as i was ****ed at this point.

Sandbag bunny hops: 50kg sandbag. managed 3 and a half times up/down yard before legs give way and i almost puked.

Tried to do 10 chin ups at the end and failed miserably at 4 or 5! excellent workout, will definately be doing this again!

I want a big tyre too, and thinking about making my own strongman type log (their too ****ing expensive) and gonna try get an axle from somewhere (again, thick bars are to damn expensive!)

25 Miler tomorrow up on the hills.(If my legs are up for it!) Not taking any weight this week for 2 reasons. firstly cos i want to time it without weight, and secondly as there's a big mad shaped-stone near my start/finish point that i want to try get home afterwards (to play with in the backyard) if i had to guess i'd say it weighs 60-70kg

Did my bergen training today. 25 miles across rough ground in ****ing shitty weather. Rain, mud, boggy ground (up to my ****ing knees at one point!) and more mud. Now all the snow has melted the ground is ****ed, very difficult to move fast across and i should have been flying today with no weight to carry. Still enjoyed it mind.

I got my stone!! Big, funny-shaped bastard (looks a bit like the map of africa) but should be good for a few exercises. I may have misjudged the weight too as it nearly ****ing killed me getting it home!

Enjoyed looking through your training mate. I came across a big stone myself today while walking the mutts but my missus told me to **** off when I told her I was going to take it home.lol. Sandbags, punch bags, chin up bar, rope hanging from the bar is alright apparently, but a big rock is too much of a pisstake for her considering we only have a little patio and everyone who visits us has to step over all my shitty training junk on the way in!

I'm looking into buying gymnastic rings at the mo-you ever done any of that stuff? Looks a real challenge.

Cheers mate.

As for the stone, go back and get it on your own My missus aint too thrilled about all my kit neither, but doesn't complain too much as long as its safe for the kids and they've got room to play. our patio is a decent size, but ive got ****ing all sorts out there! from all my weights/bars, bench, builders tressles for my squats to the sandbags and pull up bar etc like yourself. plus my rock! 86.5kg it weighs, me and a mate weighed the ****er today with some old 'hook scales' (can't remember what their called, but are the same type they used to weigh our bergens in the army) so i wasnt far off when i estimated its weight.

Yeah i use gymnast rings at the local park when i do my circuits in the mornings (while the dog runs round like a lunatic) although mostly when i'm doing the burpee/press up/pull up combo (which is a proper bastard)

For normal chins/pull ups i still prefer the monkey bars or conventional pull up bar. monkey bars are a personal favourite tho simply for the different hand positions (underhand/overhand, close/wide grip, etc) for chins and pull ups, sit ups/leg raises and for what their there for too, getting from one side to the other. with a weighted backpack

The rings are good tho, but to be honest you'll just get a similar effect that you do with the rope on the bar. and you can't do wide grip pull ups with them, at least i can't anyway. I wouldnt buy them tho, you can make them yourself easy enough.

Today's training. (Monday 13th)

Squat:
Warm up, then 5 x 5 @ 120kg (70% of 1RM)
Front squats: 8 x 2 @ 70kg

Bench: Decided to run the smolov jr bench routine for next 3 weeks to see if i can bump my bench up to 130kg. If i have any shoulder issue's i'll stretch the programme to 6 weeks as has been reccommended.

Bench: Warm up then 6 x 6 @ 85kg (70% of 1RM)

DB Bench: 4 x 10 with 40kg DB's

DB Rows: 4 x 10 with 40kg DB's

Military Press: 5 x 5 @ 70kg

Close Grip bench: 4 x 10 @ 70kg

Skullcrushers: 4 x 8 @ 45kg

Weighted Dips: 8 x 3 with 25kg plate

Light stretching followed by 6 mins of shadow boxing.

3 x 3 heavy bag / 3 x 3 pads / 3 x 3 skipping.

Bundles of energy at the moment, and definately got my leg strength back and recovery is great as long as i stretch the next day and do something to get the muscles working. no probs with my knees neither since i gave up the step circuit and the 4 mile run on roads to get there. So that's staying out of my training for good. i'll replace it with hill sprints on soft ground and the 25 miler once a week. (yeah this is weighted, and the ground is rough, but boggy/soft, so should lessen the impact on my knee's enough not to affect progress on squats.
