Strongman | Comprehensive guide to equipment and discipline

What’s a Strongman or who’s a Strongman? The discipline of Strongman is, in many ways, a return to the origins of force in the purest sense of the word. It is a sport of strength, but unlike weight lifting or powerlifting , the exercises carried out during the events are very varied and different from each other.

Strongman is a brutal mix of strength, resistance and will.

We’ve all seen huge rocks being lifted and trains towed on TV, being strong in a few movements is not enough to be successful in this sport. To excel in Strongman you have to be strong, you have to have technique and you have to be able to adapt to everything presented to you as evidence.

The mentality of a Strongman athlete is the most important part. To start this sport you have to be adaptable, dynamic and a bit crazy. Healthy people do not lift machines.

Before starting Strongman training

If you want to start practicing this sport you have to keep a few rules in mind, the first is that you have to be strong. It may seem painfully obvious, but if you do not have a solid base of strength it is very likely that you will injure yourself during training or during an event. Apart from the mere security aspect, It takes a huge amount of strength to do certain exercises so our advice is to spend a few more months in the gym focusing on certain exercises to develop the strength needed to really train for this sport.

Work on metabolic conditioning.

If you are out of breath after a one-kilometer run with just the weight of your body imagine yourself with a weight of 100 kg to carry on your shoulder. The good news is that the Strongman workout works excellently to increase your cardiovascular capabilities. As a matter of fact, recent studies have shown that it is superior to traditional cardio to burn fat and improve one’s muscle retention.

Strongman is a weightlifting sport in which athletes compete in different events involving different aspects including :

  • Strength
  • Speed
  • Mental and physical endurance.

There is a wide variety of possible event combinations that allow you to participate in different types of athletes with different abilities. Some competitions use very high weights and favor bigger and stronger athletes. Some competitions focus more on moving moderately heavy weights over a certain distance or a certain number of times within a certain time limit.

Then there are well-barbelld competitions that require strength, speed and good physical conditioning to be successful. The thing that makes Strongman so accessible is that anyone can train to participate in these competitions.

Just like other types of competitions, almost all Strongman events can be made lighter or heavier depending on the strength and level of experience of the athlete who is training.

Anyone can become much stronger in a relatively short time by doing a Strongman style workout, following a intelligently designed program. Most athletes who have intraweight this discipline have undergone a noticeable physical improvement very quickly

The biggest disadvantage for people who start their Strongman training path is the lack of access to equipment, thanks to this article we will try to help you in purchasing your equipment to start your ascent into the world of Strongman.
