The Farmers Walk: Why You Should Do Them

by letkallelift -

Article by Drew Spriggs 

“A few more steps”, you think to yourself, willing your feet to keep moving. Your arms are being pulled out of their sockets, your forearms on fire. Not being able to breathe properly, you take the step. “Just keep moving, don’t fucking let go”. You feel a callous rip, but know that’s no excuse to stop now. Your vision narrows, but you don’t care about anything else apart from making it over that line. Step by step you close the gap, just as your grip gives out. Dropping the implements you take your first proper breath in thirty seconds, immediately feel light headed and have to sit down before you pass out. The pain in your entire upper body doesn’t matter; your bleeding palm doesn’t matter; all that matters is you just dominated one of the most primal, brutal “exercises” in existence – the Farmers Walk (ie picking heavy shit up and moving it somewhere else).

The Farmers Walk, or a variant thereof, has been a staple daily occurrence in farming communities across the world for decades. It is one of the most “functional” exercises around, purely because of the fact it was a necessity in daily life – carrying buckets of water from the well, carrying animals to a market, moving tools and implements around the farm are all similar movements to an event that has now become a staple of World’s Strongest Man since 1983. So why is an exercise so basic so effective at burning fat, gaining muscle and giving the athlete a heap of strength?

Strongman Eats: Easy Beef

by letkallelift -

Article by Robert Lira 

strongmaneats1

Ground beef is a staple is pretty much any strength athlete’s diet. Not only is it cheap, but it is extremely versatile. With it, you can make hamburgers, meat loaf, chili, soup/stew and a ton of other things. Essentially, your imagination is your limit. Today I want to share a staple meal in my home that’s pretty  easy to prepare- Mexican style sautéed ground beef. Typically, I eat with rice, but it also goes well with potatoes. It’s such a staple, that my wife or I will sometimes cook it multiple times a week.

The Keys to Staying Injury Free: SMR, Mobility and Activation

by letkallelift -

Article By Drew Spriggs 

Watching most people in a gym get ready to train, they seem to fall into one of two categories – jumping straight into moving heavy weights around, or spending up to an hour (!) stretching and doing everything possible BUT training. Given that either of those extremes will result in everything from an increased risk of injury, decreasing time spent actually training (either through injury and taking time off, or wasting your entire gym session warming up) to making you measurably weaker statically and dynamically, everybody should be keen to learn the smarter way to warm up that will decrease risk of injury, increase time spend productively training and increasing power/strength output.
There are 3 phases to successfully warming up: SMR, mobilization and activation.

History of the Super Yoke

by letkallelift -

Article By Peter Herguth

One of the classic examples of strong people moving heavy things is moving a heavy load across the shoulders and back. The Super yoke is a logical progression from a squatting movement as well. Not only do you have to lift the weight up, but now try to run with it! But where did this important event begin?
