We have all seen this type of training on TV, and whether you are a strength coach or a 70KG accountant, you can’t help being engrossed in the spectacle when watching a competition! One of the reasons that people love watching it is that the events just aren’t “normal”.
Flipping a 500KG tractor tyre or pulling a 12 tonne truck aren’t what you can describe as everyday occurrences….but they are a hell of a lot of fun to watch and even more to do!!
Beauty of the training
The beauty of strongman/woman training is that there is no one perfect way to perform the exercises and you will usually end up improvising to complete the event.
The awkwardness of the events builds true functional strength from head to toe allowing you to strengthen muscles that are nearly impossible to strengthen with traditional weight training.
Feeling of accomplishment
Strongman/woman training is no longer a spectators sport. You do not have to be the world’s strongest person to do this type of training and completing a strongman workout gives you a feeling of accomplishment that you just will not get with regular training.
If you want to achieve a complete transformation in mental and physical toughness and confidence and you are focused, strong and tough then this is the type of training for you.
