Strongman Saturday

This past weekend we decided to go outside of the gym and do some strongman type training. We have a bunch of equipment such as tires, sleds, a log, an atlas stone, and some kegs that we mess around with every now and then. A couple of the guys at the gym and myself have decided to make Saturdays and outdoor training day to work on some conditioning yet keep it manly. This week was the first installment of many more to come. We created a medley of tire flips, farmers walk, log clean and press, med ball side throws, and finished it off with a sled push. The sled is in bad condition so it makes the push even harder. I have a Prowler on the way so hopefully that will arrive before next week.

Here are some videos of the good times we had, including a little puke. This type of training is a great way to mix it up and get out of the gym for a little while but a good solid program should be the foundation of your training, not the "fun" stuff.
