Default Strongman Training - 08-22-2011, 12:55 PM

The best and probably only way to do good at a strongman contest is to train with the same items they use in a contest.
Sounds like common sense huh?
Well a few years back I tried a strongman contest and all I did was use weights to train for the meet. Actually I was able to locate a huge tire for tire flips but wasn't heavy enough and we weren't doing tire flips.
Anyway I got 4th place out of 5 and shouldn't have been suprised at the fact that weight training for a strongman contest is dumb!! Totally different!
Nothing can replicate the items you use out there except those items themselves!
Anybody ever do a strongman contest or at least train for one?

I thought Jwood maybe did some or talked about it at some point. Maybe he'll see this.

I recently did a smaller, local competition. My only experience in the events were deadlifts and farmer walks, I had never used the other implements before (stones, logs, sleds, fat bar, keg, etc).

I placed 1st out of 5 in the lightweight division. On the atlas stone load, only one heavy weight was able to tie the reps I set (same stone used).

Competition was a lot of fun, would get into strongman more if I had anything in my area.

1st?? Dang man that is friggin awesome!!
It was fun but hurt the heck out of my back man. I mean I was in serious NOT GOOD pain. The log lift was actually the hardest because I didn't realize how round they were. It was like doing a standing incline press!

I have done some strongman training and still use it now for mostly conditioning. I have a tire and a log. Both of which are awesome implements. I agree it is tough to train strongman with weights, but there are a lot of lifts that translate well. Like the clean and press, the deadlift, zerher squats. Pretty much anything that is awkward.

You need a really strong core for strongman so heavy ab work is a must. Pretty much every implement is awkward. But I love tire flips for both strength training and conditioning. If I had more equipment and money I would get more stuff but it is a tough sport to get into.

Yeah tire flips are fun but you have to put in alot of money for the equipment if you are to compete. Kegs, atlas stones, implements, tires and different sizes, logs (wood and steel), sleds, and all kinds of other stuff. What size tire and log???????

Everything is expensive, my plan is to hopefully slowly build up some equipment. I do not really ever plan to compete, but I would like to have the stuff just for fun. Strongman is just plain fun!!

My log is a 10 inch log and weighs around 55 pounds, from Pitbull Strongman Equipment. Very nicely done. And my tire is a little over 500 I believe. Brand new it would be 550 but some of the tread has worn off, just a rough estimate around 500 pounds.

The press medley (2 logs and a fat bar) was my worst event, I didn't even finish. I was sore all over for days after.

You can make a lot of implements for cheap. Mold and pour your own stones, tires can be had for free with some searching, farmer handles can be made.
