Exercises often performed incorrectly in Strongman

by Nordic Training Gear 2 min read

Strongman training is both powerful and intense, but without the right technique, some exercises can easily be performed incorrectly. Incorrect technique can lead to less effective training results and potentially to injuries. In this article, we review some of the most common mistakes in various Strongman exercises and provide tips on how you can correct them.

Farmers Walk: Wrong Grip

Farmers Walk may seem simple, but a common mistake is to grip the "bags" too far forward or backward. This can lead to imbalance and increased strain on the wrists. Try to grip the "bags" in the middle and maintain a strong, stable grip throughout the movement.

Power Stairs: Incorrect Lifting Technique

Incorrect lifting technique is common in Power Stairs. Lifting too much with the back instead of using the legs and hips can lead to injuries. Be sure to keep your back straight, lift with your legs, and use your hips to drive the upward movement.

Vehicle Pull: Poor Footwork

Footwork is crucial in Vehicle Pull. Not having a stable base can reduce the power in your pull and increase the risk of stumbling or falling. Make sure to have a steady grip on the ground and use both your upper and lower body to generate pulling power.

Yoke: Too High or Low

A common mistake in Yoke is placing the yoke too high or too low on the back. If the yoke is placed too high, it can lead to imbalance, while placing it too low can increase strain on the back. Set the yoke so that it sits comfortably on your shoulders and so that you can fully stand up without being hindered.

Keg Toss: Wrong Throwing Technique

Incorrect throwing technique is common in Keg Toss. Many athletes rely too much on arm strength, but it's actually the power from the legs and hips that should drive the movement. Be sure to use your entire body when performing the throw for maximum power and precision.
