Strongman training has long been known for producing some of the strongest athletes on the planet. But it's not just for professional athletes - anyone can benefit from its functional and integrated training methods. If you're curious about starting with Strongman training, join us as we guide you through the basics.

Understanding Strongman Training

Strongman training is more than just lifting heavy objects. It's about building functional strength through a combination of lifting, carrying, pulling, and pushing exercises. These dynamic exercises challenge the whole body, improving your endurance, balance, mobility, and grip strength.

Equipment for Strongman Training

Strongman training requires a variety of equipment to perform its unique exercises. Atlas Stones, Farmers Walk, Circus Dumbbell, and giant tires are just a few examples. In addition, more specialized equipment such as knee sleeves, elbow supports, lifting belts, neoprene shorts, sandbags, tacky for Atlas Stones, and chalk from NTGear can help you optimize your training, enhance your performance, and minimize the risk of injuries.

Basic Strongman Exercises

Some of the most popular exercises in Strongman training include:
  • Atlas Stones: A classic Strongman exercise where you lift a heavy, round stone and place it on a platform.
  • Farmers Walk: You hold a heavy object, similar to suitcases, in each hand and walk over a set distance as quickly as possible or as far as possible within a set time.
  • Circus Dumbbell: A large and heavy dumbbell that should be pressed overhead with one arm.
  • Tire Flips: A large, heavy tire is flipped repeatedly over a distance.

Starting with Strongman Training

Beginners to Strongman training should start slowly, focusing on learning correct techniques and building up basic strength. It can be very helpful to work with a trainer or join a Strongman club to get proper guidance. And don't forget, recovery and good nutrition are just as important as the training itself to achieve the best results and prevent injuries.
