    One of the most common questions I get is what log should someone buy?

    Below I will review and outline the pros and cons of various logs I have used in training, at contests, seminars, etc. Feel free to chime in with your own experiences and suggestions. A good log is one of the best investments you can make for Strongman training and not something you should skimp on as it needs to be made to be correctly balanced, and hold up.

    Budget Logs
    I’ll put this category as under $400

    Strength Shop 8″ Log
    245 + shipping its a fantastic price point, a 8″ log isn’t ideal as most contests will be 10″ for women and 12″ for men at 70lbs its fairly heavy for a 8″ log but should be thick enough to take some abuse.

    12″ Strength Shop Log

    It is a proper 12″ log (more like 13″) and is a bit shorter than normal so weighs only 100lbs, the hand cuts are a bit narrow and deep though which makes it a tough log to clean and a bit tricky at 349 it is about as cheap as you can spend on a decent 12″ log

    CFF Dual Handle Strongman Log

    309.99 on Amazon with free shipping and only weighing 70lbs this is a great bargain. It is 9″ in diameter which leaves something to be desired but is better than nothing, its also nothing fancy. It has dual handles which are kind of pointless the inside handles are correct 24″ across the outside ones are 30″+

    12″ Pitbull Log
    Pitbull 12

    It is kind of crazy how some things never changed this thing is solid, 90 or so pounds empty, 12″ around and only 369 shipped. When I was shopping for a log 10 years ago this was the best option and somehow it still is. Perfectly balanced and solid construction. I’ve had 450+lbs pressed on mine and I have abused the hell out of it. The loading pins are bent and it has a few dents throughout it but it is by far the best 12″ budget log on the market.
