How to Get Started in Strongman: Beginners Guide to Training, Equipment, and Where to Compete

In other words, you don’t need to be a strongman to train like one. “ [Commercial gyms] are starting to get variations of strongman equipment that won’t destroy their facility. You might see super heavy medicine balls that people use to simulate a stone load. Or you’ll see people carry dumbbells like farmer handles.

You might see super heavy medicine balls that people use to simulate a stone load. Or you’ll see people carry dumbbells like farmer handles. ‘You don’t need to have the physique or strength of a strongman to get the benefits of training like one,’ says coach Luke Chamberlain, as I arrive for my first ‘modified’ strongman session. When you need a mental vacation from the traditional lifts, but don’t want to slack off and lose strength, pivoting to strongman training is hands down one of the best ways to do so.

The best part is, you don’t have to compete in the sport to reap the benefits. So why don’t you train like one? Strongman isn’t Olympic lifting, it’s not powerlifting and it certainly isn’t bodybuilding. People who follow a powerlifting routine coupled with the odd event session are selling themselves short.

You must be strong, you must have technique, and you must be able to adapt to whatever is thrown at you. This leads us into what could be an enormous topic. The mentality of a strongman. In order to enjoy the sport, you must be adaptable, dynamic, and.

But you don’t need to be a monster to incorporate strongman training effectively into your gym routine. Strongman training methods are just like any other training method. It’s all movement, and it can be fit in anywhere in a variety of ways. Bodybuilding-like benefits – Oh, and it turns out strongman lifting can make you bigger, don’t worry ladies, your bodies operate in a different way But for the guys! You may be of the mindset that the only way to get bigger is to lift like a bodybuilder, but that isn’t really true.

I’ll be one of the first to tell you there are huge benefits to incorporating strongman style movements and events into your training program. But I’ve also pointed out that depending on your goals and level of conditioning there are particular exercises which are inappropriate and more specific to competition than general strength or fitness.

The personal trainer needs to be aware that the ability to develop maximal strength or power (or both) with body weight training will be eliminated because it cannot provide the intensity necessary to develop these physiological adaptations.

But if your recent training hasn’t been well structured or very scientific, if you’ve missed a lot of workouts, or if the training hasn’t been all that challenging, then you have a lot of potential left to realize.

  • I’d really like to achieve the body type/look of a strong man with some added strength. But not looking to get into competitions.
    If you haven’t already could you go over eating habits that I could combine with your ‘at home strong man works outs’
    PS THANKS IN ADVANCE

  • I want to start strongman but I don’t know if I have a gym close to me that I could train for it in. Im in Kansas. If anyone has any info I would greatly appreciate it

  • So on point on the percentage of max work, no one can lift there pr every day so why expect that you can do 75% for 6 reps everyday, rpe is where its at!

  • I’m only 160 pounds but strongman is so interesting and unique I’ve been thinking for a while of trying out some strong man style workouts, just for fun. Obviously scaled waaaaaaay down lol

  • 0:52 I mean sure, unless Bjornsson, Shaw, Pritchett, Caron and Heinla are also competing. Martins has a huge deadlift, but he is not even in the world’s top 5 pullers.

  • Wrestling is a sport in high school as well. In football you can excel and be compared to other players. And you win and lose as a team. In wrestling 1v1. Its either you or him. Love strongman just putting in my opinion

  • commenting on the size or bodyfat percentage of a strong man is like commenting on how weak a bodybuilder is. who cares. he doesn’t train to look good or be small. he trains to be strong as possible. bodybuilders train to look big at very small body fat percentages. You wanna look at half naked dudes and judge their body weight, cool. Watch those kind of videos when they’re posted. respect all styles and shut up.

  • The first professional on men’s health workout is actually the strongest guy in the world? That’s an ambitious step up from random actors.

  • I love how much attention Strongmen are getting these days. It’s a hell of a sport and these guys have always deserved more attention than they previously had (at least in the US.)

  • hes not the worlds strongest man. Hes the worlds fastest man lol the only reason he won is becasue the entire sport of strongman has been ruined by using much lighter weights and essentially turning it into a speed contest rather than a strength contest

  • Mad respect for the man being one of the strongest men in the world and for doin this video, but logically, who BENEFITS from this?! Already by the first exercise, lifting something that’s 1100 POUNDS! I know that many BODYBUILDERS follow this channel (obviously) but what percent of us can lift fucking 1100lbs let alone do any of these other exercises?! XD

  • I didn’t see this asked yet but may have overlooked. Do you sell programs for strongman? Any direction you have for me would help, thank you.

  • I never could understand someone not wanting to be strong. I’m no amazingly strong person or anything, but I’ve never found being stronger than average to have a downside, other than getting very strange looks when you HAVE to pull over and try to lift something that looks heavy on the side of the road. Keeps the neighbors away almost as good as a fence.
