31 year old rugby player/new father from Vancouver BC living in the states.

@fit for last 4 years but have been getting away from the wods and focusing on lifting, short metcons and sprints. Started 5/3/1 last week and am open to any sort of training advice. I'm still working out at a @fit gym with a trainer that offers excellent stretching/mobility/flexibility/speed work. He's not a big CF guy and for the most part does his own programming. He also offers strongman training every Friday which I attend

DL @475 - (500 on 1/26/12) (535 03/12)
Press @195 (2x195 03/12)
Squat @405 (425 03/12)
Bench @ 285 (300 03/12)

Hoping to compete in a strongman comp in 2012. Need to improve on all my lifts and grip strength in order to do so. This will also be my last season of rugby.

Solid work.
Dont let the metcon stuff get in the way of 5/3/1 though, but I guess you know that.
Diet dialed in to get bigger and stronger?
Also please write an intro on the Free Speech Forum. And Welcome to IGx!

Diet is something I have to work on. I am carrying too much fat right now but will probably lose 5-10 lbs once rugby conditioning starts at the end of the month. I don't supplement with protein or creatine when I am weight training but I consume a lot of meat/eggs/veggies/fruit. I try to limit my grains and carbs but I have been slacking with the diet since my daughter was born last March. I know, too many excuses but I hope to be back down to 210 before the end of spring. In regards to Strongman, I would like to make it through Spring season without injury and try and compete in some sort of strongman competition in the summer or fall as a middleweight.
I am hoping this journal keeps me in check.

Into on FSF will come later tonight

I get that. I have two of them myself, 2 and 4.
The log here helps and there are some good ones to read also. Best of luck.

Climber 511 is a grip genius. He holds the "Gripmas" event each year and regularly wins his weight class being in his late 50s.I'm sure he would be open to PMs. Tell him I sent you.

Welcome. Good stuff in your journal here.

Just wondering, how come you're making this your last rugby season?

I am 31 now and started playing rugby when I was 15. Have spent a lot of years playing rugby and dealing with nagging injuries. I also play in the Montana Rugby Union which means our closest league game is 3 hours away and the farthest is 12 hours. In addition, I just had a baby girl with my wife and my line of work requires a lot of international travel. I guess I am trying to prioritize my life.

The rugby team looks good and we have been developing a lot of good rookies. Championships are in our town this year and I want to have one final go at the title. We have placed second the last two years. It is time for me to step aside and let the young guys take over.

Do you play?

I used to, but I haven't played seriously in years now. I wouldn't mind starting again, but switching to rugby league instead of union and trying my hand at that, but I'll see.

Good luck in getting the Championship this year; you've got to go out with a bang whatever happens :supz: !

Thanks. I need to get a lot stronger. . . .
No you don't you just need to show up and compete. You're about the same size as me and not far off my numbers. plus you have access to implements. I'm going to do a strongman this summer if all goes well. Maybe sooner. Highlanders are also a good way to get a little strongman action albeit with much lighter weight and a few Highland Games events.

I see two listings for Idaho and one for Portland.

I competed with Blaidd in my first Highlander last year. They are a freaking blast.
