Ever wondered about the history of the log lift? One of the most iconic lifts in strongman.
So the log lift has been a staple event in competition since the early 1980s. Bill Kazmaier set the world record at the Worlds Strongest Man competition in 1980 pressing 157kg. Over 8 years he went on to increase the log lift record to 170kg.
But you can't think of log lift and not think of Žydrūnas Savickas or Big Z who started his reign in 2005 with a 200kg lift. He still holds the record now which is currently at 228kg set in 2015.

Deadlifts are bad for your back?

Deep down we all know this is wrong.

Deadlifting or any hinging movement is actually good for you, as long as you're doing it correctly. Hinging is a movement we should all be able to do all throughout our life. it requires proper co-ordination, stability and control. Plus as it's a big compound lift you're using a lot of muscles, so you can really add on the mass and get thick.

The only time deadlifts could be bad for you back will be with poor technique, poor stability/control, trying to lift too much weight or a combination of them all.

Here's one for the powerlifters, strength athletes or someone looking to try something a little different, an SBD session.
•Barbell Squat 1x3 (work up to a top set of 3 for the day) 3x3 (-15% off your top set for the backdown sets)

•Barbell Bench Press 6x3 - use this as speed work. 40%-50%. Sometimes I like to add band tension for the speed work to really make me think about accelerating through the rep.

•Deficit Deadlift 5x5 - Use this as technique work and really focus on positions. I like to use a slightly different lift to the classic so I can work on weaknesses.

•Walking Lunges 3x8
•Prowler Drags & Pushes 4x50m

The structure is strength lift first, then speed work and then technique. Each day switching the lifts around. Aim to get the assistance done relatively quickly and I keep the assistance targeted to what the strength lift was on the day.

Ever thought about where the squat came from?

Well the first known reference of the squat in a competition came from Germany in 1919. Carl Moerke defeated Hermann Goerner in a head to head contest squatting 240kg or 529lbs. After the war a German immigrant named Heinrich Steinborn came to the United States in 1921. Steinborn is well known for bringing with him this newly developed lift.

At this time squat racks weren't too much of a thing and most people choose to clean the weight up which greatly limited weight. Steinborn opted to up end the barbell on one side, then squatted sideways and slowly lowered the vertical bar onto his back. As the bar came to his shoulders, he would sit into the bottom of the squat. From this bottom position he would then stand up with the loaded barbell upon his back.

You CAN'T target specific body parts to burn body fat.

You CAN'T spot reduce.

Unfortunately if you was able to we'd all have chiselled 6 pack abs and a chest built like Arnold Schwarzenegger. You can certainly target body parts to increase muscle mass and increase its overall size and strength.

But unfortunately the best way to burn body fat is to sort the nutrition out and put yourself into a suitable calorie deficit. Slowly, but surely the body fat will reduce and whatever part your aiming for will start to get leaner along with the rest of your body. Slow and steady wins the race with a bit of self discipline and commitment you'll manage to get the body fat to where you want it.

Ever wondered where the trap bar came from?

Created by Al Gerald in the 1980's was used to increase his lifting numbers without aggravating any injuries. Al Gerald in his powerlifting days pulled an impressive 625lb deadlift or 280kg but overtime developed some lower back issues.

Obviously wanting to improve his squat and deadlift numbers Al Gerald got thinking on how he could replicate these 2 exercises without overdoing it and causing more harm to himself.

Initially doing rack pulls and squats in the power cage with the reduced ROM this helped for a time and improved the numbers pain free. As he became more inflexible he was more determined to find a proper solution. Squatting with dumbbells in either hand he thought about what if you could stand in-between 2 weights and lift but how would this look?

Soon after and the first trap bar was born with the insight that the closer you bring the resistance back to the body the more efficient the lift will be.
