It’s almost as if gaining weight is making you stronger...keep gaining and you’re going to rocket through the powersphere!

No doubt - look at the volume difference now compared to when we began in October. I got room for 7 more lb lean mass to stay in 100 kg. 6 more months will come to 460+ axle, 300+ Saxon and 245-250 rt

Programming the double overhand axle lift 

27-7-19

To set the tone - my best ever axle lift is 463-1 @225 lb witnesses by Matt Brouse, Mike T Nelson, and Jacob Eggleton lifted in Minneapolis at studio in 2012. My best in competition that year 433 lb at Decathlon III. My best this year 2019 is 455 lb @210 lb and 428lb in Competition. Score boards & records show I haven’t missed a 405+ lift in competition since Feb 2011. Let’s get this straight too - I don’t have big hands (7”&7/8”) and I’m 6’2” so it’s not like I’m the most natural build for this. 

I absolutely love this lift. I believe it’s the most important single lift you can do build a truly strong hand & body. The only lift that is a contender over the DohA is the Saxon lift to lock out. 

While many of my peers are stalled or even regress in their axle mine moves up month after month. For those who read this log I will tell you now how to see continous progress week in and week out.

My programming is centered on 3 primary variations of the lift. 

Conventional or sumo stance?

double overhand or thumbless double overhand? 

Loaded on 45s or 25s?

Continously changing these three simple factors keeps your numbers climbing. Period. 

I am tracking a number of “max lifts” - what is best Doh sumo on 45s? What about sumo thumbless? What about conventional on 25s? Do you understand? 

I pull 3-5 days a week. Every training day features this bar in my hands with very few exceptions. I most typically use singles walking ups in small jumps. My sport uses the last man standing format with allows multiple attempts as the weight increases. It’s critical to build deep strength that can be called upon for many lifts at the meet. It’s not uncommon for me to do 7-12 attempts in an event walking up to my max. I lift most volume in the 80-92% range for singles. 

There’s many good reasons to use the axle for other than deadlift motions. I row, curl, press, clean, & snatch with my fatbar. 

If you want a bigger pull you must pull. Grip strength is a connective tissue sport. It is a slower transformation but once you get it- very permanent change to the body. 

Make no mistake- there’s no such thing as a strong man with a weak grip. There’s no such thing as a strong grip but a weak axle lift. Don’t kid yourself- pick up that bar if you want to see how strong you can get. 

 

And to the “I can’t deadlift because of my back” crowd, and your back will never be better if you don’t reclaim your triple flexion/triple extension. Your weak back could be fixed if you will get humble and be smart. Some of you are simply too proud or too stupid- I hope this helps you get over your dumbness. 

I will be the first 100 kg lifter to pull 500 doh. You see it written now you will see it happen soon. This is how I will accomplish it.
