Wasnt sure if I should post this in strongman or another place but figured someone would tell me.
I'm 5'11, 210lbs, 14%bf, 1rm are 325/245/405. Age 18. Log press 210, p. clean 245,
I'm new to strongman and have only been lifting seriously for about a year before starting in on sm training. Not sure how to program yet, still learning. I had a coach give me a lifting program and it worked but I feel like ive stalled and I need another split. Been on the last one for about 4 months. I really like westside training but I've never use and thought this would be a good time to give it a shot. I found a sm/Wsbb lifting program on eltfts and made a couple changes.
Heavy dips and chi ups
Squat and deads
Farmers and sprints medley, dynamic
Log press heavy
Rows curls face pulls rear delt work
My goals are just to get strong, explosive, and better at certain events for a competition in 7 months.

Might end up being a little to much load, doing me lower then squat/deads a separate day doing farmers twice a week, ME upper and heavy log. I'd try it out. Personally I would do the log press then your DE work

I'm not a professional strong man, but, I do incorporate many strongman exercises into my training program, such as; short medleys (sledgehammer to tire w/farmer's walk) and days where I do things like Tireflip, Sled, etc. This is very effective in many aspects that include fat loss, muscle strength and edurance, power and even core stability (especially if you incorporate 1-arm farmer's walks).
That's for me though. Most strongman that I know of train 'like powerlifters' 4-5 days per week and have 1 day every week (or 2 days) that just involve exercises that you would see in a typical competition. (Do things 1x-2x a week that you would do in that specific competition) So, I suggest doing some research and figuring out what events there are and start training for them specificly on 1 or 2 days. This helps regulate training stress, neural fatigure, etc. Plus, it makes sure that you don't skimp on your general strength training or your strongman specific training.
