anyone have any experience with strongman training/competition?

i've dabbled a little bit, but nothing serious. however, this new guy at my gym comes from a strongman background and i've spent a lot of time picking his brain and i've become very interested in doing it.

this weekend i'm having my first all out strongman training session. i'm pretty pumped about it.

I, personally, have not but I have watched my friend and his brother train for local events. The shit they do was always pretty intense. That's all I have to offer. I've never trained for that type of strength. For what I do athletically, I don't need it. However, I absolutely appreciate it and find myself glued to the TV anytime the World's Strongest Man competition is on.

good luck.

Love watching that stuff on TV. The build of the guys who are really really good at it isn't really something I would want to shoot for because they are kind of fat-looking

Go to Iron Sport. It's where I learned.

I've played around with some implements, but it's something I've never really focused on. Event training seems pretty important.

I was in texas once and I found a ton of stones to pick up and carry around.
