Strongman equipment buying guide

by letkallelift -

Article by Kalle beck

So you want to start strongman and you can’t find a gym near you with any of the implements. (Make sure to check www.strongmanmap.com to make sure) Or maybe you just prefer training at home but you are not sure where to start? What do I buy first? Where Do I get a log? Should I get a 10” or 12”? Hopefully this guide can help answer your questions and get you started.

When choosing what to buy first to prepare you for competition you have to look at what is the most likely to appear at a competition and what is the hardest to replicate without the actual implement. I have broken it down to The Big Three.

5 Key Points For Success In Strongman

by letkallelift -

Article by Alex Bromley 

I’ve been competitive in this sport since 2006 and, while I am not exactly a pro, I have lifted some things in some places with some people. Excelling in this sport, or just being competent at it for recreational purposes, requires a unique blend of raw physical ability and technical proficiency. The following is a short list of epiphanies I’ve had over the years that have greatly contributed to my advancement.

Transfer/Broad Work

‘Transfer’ refers to the benefit doing one exercise has on other events; exercises that offer the biggest transfer should make up the backbone of your workouts. A crucial thing to recognize about
this sport is that there are too many variations of exercises and training thresholds to all train concurrently. While the technical game is every bit as important as any other strength sport, we
have the benefit of getting a lot of mileage out of a few basic movements that have wide reaching carryover.

ANDREW CLAYTON: 5 Years in Strongman & coming out with a prophecy.

by letkallelift -

Five years ago today I started competing in strongman. I live it. I breath it. I sleep it. I love it! This is just a recap of all my accomplishments over my 20+ competitions. Enjoy the journey.

Transformation of 5 years. 2009-2014

I started out a fat, lanky, and neck-bearded 16 year old entering an open men’s novice strongman show in Orlando, Florida. On that day, November 7th, 2009, I got 9th out of 10. Not what young Andrew was expecting.

However, this Signature fitness show would go on to develop four professional strongmen, four national champions as well as countless other strength sport accomplishments by it’s participants. It was no easy show!

Arram Eghoyan SCL England 90kg/198lb Strongman winners contest write up

by letkallelift -

To say the build up to this competition hadn’t been ideal would be an understatement. Fortunately I had spent a good few months progressing very slowly and smoothly with no new major injuries, all the while still rehabbing some of the old ones. 3 weeks out however, I had a fever, wasn’t sleeping or eating properly and my training suffered to the extent that I’d only managed 3 sessions in the month leading up to the competition. The more time I spend in this sport the more value I attribute to taking care of my body. It’s not just a case of getting stronger, it’s doing so with good technique, and without breaking myself.

American Strongman Radio – Episode 30 – Robert Kearney

by letkallelift -

This weeks ASR has Rob Kearney finding time to stop by after his international rise to fame via social media. He stops by to talk about his runner-up at Americas Strongest Middleweight Man and his recent announcement that he is gay. A simple posting on Facebook led to articles across the internet including the Huffington Post and mentions by Perez Hilton amongst others. Rob talks openly about his decision, how those closest to him reacted and where he goes from here. Rob agrees this is something that needs to maintain a level of discussion. Not about him specifically, but supporting and understanding openly gay people in our community and around the world. Kalle and Bryan break some great news for the top 3 from ASM last weekend, NAS schedule for December and Bryan’s return to competition! All this and much more on American Strongman Radio!
