Strongman training is about true functional strength. It is about lifting heavy, awkward objects (like those you encounter in life) and getting them from the ground to overhead, or from one end of the room to the other. Strongman is about getting you strong to a degree that you never thought possible. Strongmen train with various implements that allow them to build strength all over the body and from every angle, it builds muscle and blasts fat at the same time. Equipment like the Tires, Sledge, Farmers Carrier, Logs, Chains, Ropes, Hammers and sand bags require more work from your core and grip compared with what conventional lifts demand. As a result, you fortify areas that were weak before, resulting in more balanced strength that leads to muscle gains and reduced risk for injury.
