So i'm going to be competing the RU strong competition taking place in my school. They only take the top ten finalists and i think i can make it. However, i need to train hard. The events are all timed. There are 4 events - Atlas stone lift, Herculean Tire Flip, Farmer Log, and Ajax Row.

So! my question to all of you is if you guys have any suggestions for a workout routine or moves and such to focus on to really help me in this event. I've never done this kind of event so any suggestions would be much appreciated. Please and thank you!

No idea what all these are. But having something to train for really focusses the mind. Good luck, you can definitely do it!

They are all events derived from the Strongman Competition. I can probably do well in the competition but i'm already sad I didnt train for the benchpress competition which i am currently doing so now (which takes place in the fall) so I really want to win. I kinda want to take it away from the Rugby girls lolz.

It's hard to go wrong with the major compound lifts - Squats, Deadlifts, Bench Press, Overhead Press, and Power Cleans.

I know you're already familiar with deadlifts, but if you're not incorporating some or all of the others into your workout routine, I strongly recommend checking out Starting Strength. It's a simple, proven routine that will work your largest muscle groups:

I already do the first three Nimm. I do the a separate shoulder strength workout that includes the military press. I haven't done cleans in a long time. Thanks for reminding me. Any other ideas out there? The one im kinda worried about is the Ajax Row (essentially pulling a heavy bag across the floor).

My hands are going to be so torn up lmao.
