Project 44: day 20 it’s a yoke!

Actually…it wasn’t a yoke, it was a sort of odd shaped squat bar with dangly down bits on each side but it was the closest I was going to get…

Mind you, before I yoked, I farmers walked! Well…I suppose it was more like a frame carry really, but anyway…I walked up and down carrying 80kg!

There it is… a frame with weights and my feet… I was in the middle though, when I was carrying it…

It was hard on my hands but it was doable…

Apparently the circulation cuts off when I am carrying heavy things…

So that was farmers carry, now back to this yoke business… in the competition I am going to have to carry a yoke with 100kg on it for a distance… this is the hardest thing to simulate with out a proper yoke…

That is what a proper yoke set up lions like…

This is what I had…

I had to lift the strange dangly bar up on my shoulders and the walk out of the rack, onto the runway, turn around and come back…

I practiced the first time with about 30kg on there…it started out well then I crashed the end of the bar into the lat pull down machine…

Despite this I decided to go for another two carries… and I jumped straight in with 80kg plus whatever the bar weighs (probably 15kg maybe 10kg) then did 90kg plus the bar… it was hard work!! But I managed it, now I just need to get better and not crash!
