TWO Hours of STRONGMAN TRAINING and CONDITIONING with Travis Ortmayer.
Been to a gym? Love to lift weights, and  measured your strength (and pride) by what you could hoist on classic exercises like the bench press and squat.... Then you see strongman implements, and thought there maybe more to building strength than lifting barbells and dumbbells alone.

Strongmen train with various implements that allow them to build strength all over the body and from every angle. Equipment like the yoke, Atlas stones, axle, and log require more work from your core and grip compared with what conventional lifts demand. As a result, you fortify areas that were weak before, resulting in more balanced strength that leads to muscle gains and reduced risk for injury. Measure your strength by how far you can carry a keg and how fast I can walk with a yoke on your back, lift a stone, and just have FUN.  Learn from one of the very best American Strongman Travis Ortmayer
