      Hi Kalle,
      I’m new to strongman, but have enjoyed powerlifting recreationally. I was looking to compete at the end of last year, but had a run of bad luck with illness (meningitis, appendicitis), so have spent the last few months building my strength back up. My current maxes are:
      Squat: 170kg
      Deadlift: 200kg
      Bench:115 kg closegrip 110)
      Log press: 85kg strict

      I did the juggernaut method when I was powerlifting and had good gains and was wondering if you think it’s a good way to train strongman? I have read the juggernaut method 2.0 and know that CWS has written about it but just wanted an idea from someone who knows more than me.
      The other thing was training with implements. I have access to farmers handles, a yoke and 3 stones that way 30, 50 and 70kg respectively. Also a car to deadlift. Just wanted to get an idea of the best way to train these. Especially if I do TJM.
      My biggest obstacle to my training is that I’m a serving royal marine and run 4-6 miles 3-5 times a week for a troop run, which sometimes makes squatting and deadlifting a struggle. Any advice on anything I’ve written would be greatly appreciated.

      Kind regards,
      Steve Williams.

      Hey Steve,

      Chad Wesley Smith has wrote on incorporating TJM for Strongman here. http://www.jtsstrength.com/articles/2012/09/20/the-juggernaut-method-and-strongman/

      So I won’t delve much into how to adapt it as the man himself already has 🙂 I think it is a good program and will get success in Strongman especially if you are already used to and like training that way.

      for training the implements I recommend sticking to using the moving events as primarily for speed at first then slowly increase the weight keeping time domains (under 12 seconds for 50ft, etc) every 8 or so weeks go max weight for 50ft on farmers but NOT yoke.

      I would slowly build up volume with the stones. Rotating between doing series, amrap sets and EMOMs

      hope this helps!

      As far as the running don’t worry about it it will only help in the long run just regulate your training based around your running.
