Alex's Yoke Walk Update - 160 lbs



Song:  Enter Sandman

Group:  Metallica





Alex was using 160 lbs. for his 1/4 mile Yoke Walk tonight...
but it was too light for him.

Starting next week...
he will be doing the Yoke Walk with 180 lbs.

Before the end of summer...
he should be walking with 220 lbs (100 kilos) on his back for 1/4 mile.

I will have him keep progressing in the Yoke Walk...
and in the Farmer's Walk.

I will then add back in weight training when his body has adapted to 
twice weekly YW and once weekly FW.

I have to build his overall body strength and recuperative capability
before I have him add in the weight training again.

This will prevent injury...
and prevent strength stagnation...
 as with what normally happens using just weights.

The Yoke Walk and Farmer's Walk
will make his whole body a pillar of strength.

His whole support structure
(Skeletal / Tendonal / Ligamental)...
will be much stronger.

His overall musculature is growing much stronger...
and each is much more highly adaptable to pure strength training
as a result of this type of training.


When Alex starts to carry really heavy weights (at least 2x body weight)...
his conditioning level will really skyrocket.


Until then...
we will have to slowly and steadily progress...
all the while looking forward to what is to come.

(You can only walk through the gates of heaven...
by first walking through the gates of hell).
