Hi everyone, we’ve just arrived in Berlin-Lichtenberg. Now we’re going over to Joni, who runs Strengthshop.de. He’s going to show me how to do proper strongman training and give me a good thrashing, so let’s go. Today is Tuesday, that’s my leg day and I am interested to see what it’s like because strongmen train very continuously. A lot of basic exercises are involved and I hope that I really waste my legs during the session. We’ll see, I’m looking forward to it. I hope the session really finishes me off. It’s well hidden… That looks more like Strongman equipment at the back there. That’s what we’re looking for. Joni has now given me a belt and I’m going to try to do squats with more weight. I hope my back problems won’t be too severe. Since that went so well, now I have the courage to squat 140kg again. Let’s see, what I can do. In February, I managed 20 repetitions with 140kg, I definitely won’t be able to do that anymore, but we’ll see what I can do. How many did I do? I haven’t got enough oxygen in my brain. I’ve just done squats with Joni, it was really cool to do squats again properly. The last time I did squats I injured my back and I haven’t done any squats for a while. I didn’t think that it would work again so well with the belt. I was able to squat 140kg again, about 15 times I reckon. After the tire flip, I must say I’m quite disappointed. I gave my all, I tried to flip it. It just wouldn’t go. He said the technique is important, but it simply wasn’t to be. I will definitely try again though some time. The coordination is totally missing there. I really felt it in my knees. It will come with time, of course. It’s a great exercise. Now I have to prove something after messing up with the tire. Now we have added some weight, there is almost 200kg now, he is going to show me again now and I will copy him. The yoke was damned hard I must say. That was the exercise where I really noticed that I need my knees. I never really had pain in my knees before and I really noticed that when you lose coordination, then it really hits the joints. So that is definitely a dangerous exercise, it is tough — but it was cool, I enjoyed it! That is a lot easier than the exercise before. Now it’s going to be crap, I haven’t said anything yet. Now it’s going to get tough. Now we’ll see whether the deadlift has paid off and this time I’m doing it without straps. My girlfriend will be pleased when she sees that. The prowler was by far the toughest exercise I did today. The last few meters were the absolutely sickest shit, you wouldn’t believe it. I was on my knees. But overall that was a great workout, too. You definitely have to try it. I can recommend trying it to any bodybuilder because it takes you to the limits in a different way. It is really nasty. A construction worker just stopped by and flipped the tire. Then the cameraman came along and flipped it. Now I’m freaking out, now I have to flip the tire. I said I have to do it now and then WHAM it worked. I was so pleased what a great feeling.
