Training for strongman involves building overall strength in the gym and training with competition implements to gain familiarity. In the gym, it is necessary to train the entire body for strength, especially with variants of the squat, deadlift, and overhead press. Also important is explosive power, developed by weightlifting-style lifts, and cardiovascular conditioning. Grip strength must also be developed.
Our next Strongman event is the "Battle at the Marina", which takes place Saturday, September 2nd at 9am.  This is a novice/entry level competition perfect for anyone who has thought about entering the sport of strongman.
