Why I Wrote Cube Method for Strongman 3

Pick up Cube 3 today!

By Josh Thigpen 

 
When I finished the Cube Method for Strongman 2.0, I sat back and thought, “There it is, a complete program. I won’t make another one of these.” To make it even more certain, I actually stopped strongman all together after WSM 2015. But along the way I had these little thoughts, thoughts of adding some more overhead work, or perhaps a little more conditioning. “Nah”, I’d say, “Just let it be.” I even said that I believe that overhead was the most important event in strongman, and that most great pressers train it more than once a week, but still I let it go.

Because of Strongman
By Josh Thigpen
Because of Strongman…Because of strongman I have proven that anything is possible. I was once a very skinny, weak kid who used to dream of competing in Worlds Strongest Man. I would dream about it, see it, feel it, all the way down to what I was wearing. In fact, when I was in high school I used to look out the window in class and see myself carrying a car in a tropical place at worlds strongest man, and then one day, that exact thing happened.

The transition from pregnancy to birth to post-partum is one of the most significant, life changing events a woman can experience. You’ve brought a human into the world and it’s a wonderful thing but…it’s also really hard work — which you will have to do with not enough hours in the day and on not enough sleep.
