HIGA MONSTER visits "Knott's Berry Farm" (Buena Park, CA)

It actually ended up being not that bad, but I was still SCREAMING like a little boy while my primo, Raully was laughing his ass off at me.

Good fun though!

Ken Nowicki, Max Effort Sq and De

Here's the latest edition of my training. Tried some squat with chains today which I really enjoyed and can see them being a real help to my raw squat.

Top set was 250kg plus 30kg of chains for a weight at the top of 280k, and at the bottom maybe 260ish.

Followed that up with some 18" deadlift, went upto a new PB of 340kg for 3 reps.

Here's the video:

How many reps will HIGA, Ben Rice & Ben Seath pull in THE CAGE (Arnold Classic)

42 days until we lift in the "Pros vs Bros 500 lb deadlift for reps" contest.  I hope these Bros bring it, cause I'm tired of hearing them say, "we need to use straps" when we Deadlift.

Zach Gallmann training 1/15/2011

After a good month off of training after Nationals, it was time to get into some heavy work!  Did axle triples up to 330lbs and then did 350 for a single.  Hopefully I'll be hitting 400 real soon!  Also, we did some husafeldt stone holds and yoke holds.  Stone is 400lbs and yoke is 610lbs.  More to come soon!

Ken Nowicki, Axle Pressing

Here's a wee video from yesterday, trying to get into attacking my rep events more, but setting a good pace so I don't burn out.

Set myself a goal of 3reps in 30s on a 140kg axle, hoping to get about 5reps with the 147k at the Arnold, another 6weeks and I should do that with some luck!

Also, got an invite to the British Log Lift Championships in July today, going to aim to break the Scottish record of 165kg.

Kristyn's 01.17.11 workout

Well, after an unforeseen week off, I had to hit it pretty hard today.  Though I haven't been lifting much, I have been doing some cardio.  Trying to be strong and healthy...  it's a little bit tough, I won't lie...  but I was pretty pleased with today's session.  Hope it's a good indication of things to come!

Box Squats/Deads (super-setted)
Oh yes, this hurt so good!

Step-ups (each leg)
I'm still a really big fan of single leg assistance work since I had to rehab my knee.  I think it's made a huge difference in my strength, even if it is seemingly piddly stuff.

15 mins 
Shockingly enough, I actually managed to run today at 6.0, rather than just walk.  Weird how some days after squatting I couldn't run even if I really wanted to...  oh well...  whatever, just gotta do what I can do.

How many reps will HIGA pull at "THE CAGE" in The Arnold Classic?

The gauntlet has been set!  HIGA MONSTER, Ben Rice and Ben Seath will be competing in the "Pros vs Bros" contest in THE CAGE against 3 bros from the Animal Pak website.

I hope the "bros" are training hard because all 3 of us "pros" here in Washington are GOING TO BRING IT!
Mahalo to "Big Gym" of Hood River, Oregon for letting me get a workout there yesterday.  Mathias Graebel is a cool dude who always lets me get some killer workouts there whenever I am in town.  Appreciate it bro!

Ken Nowicki, 175kg BTN Jerk

Had another go at the 400# overhead yesterday, hit 175kg before it for a 5kg PB, but missed the illusive 400#.

Going to start training axle for triples as my secondary movement for about three weeks from next Tuesday to get me used to the axle again for Arnold's. Looking forward to the show, going to be a great trip!!

Here's the video:

Zack Nims 305 lb Axle press for 2 reps

Zack did this today in my garage. He only weighs 220 lbs and is slamming this weight above his head.  I am looking forward to seeing him compete at "The Arnold Amateur World Strongman Championship".  At that contest, he has to press 325 lbs overhead!  Lots of time to train and get BULKY.

For more info on the BULKY weights Zack and the other competitors have to lift, check out this link:

Kristyn's 12.30.10 and 01.03.11 workouts

December 30, 2010


Cleans/Bent Over Rows

January 3, 2011


Decline Sit-ups/Hypers

17 mins
I tried to run today...  I really did, but my legs just wouldn't do it.  Too much lactic acid built up already or something.  Just wasn't happening, so I had to walk fast at an incline...  oh well.
