Strongman is fantastic training for building brutal strength, endurance, and functional power. However, it's not just for professional athletes, regular people can also benefit from the total body strength this type of training offers. Let's dive into some of the best Strongman exercises and how they can be integrated into your training routine.

1. Atlas Stones

Atlas Stones are considered one of the most iconic Strongman exercises. This exercise involves lifting a large, heavy, round stone and placing it on a platform. Atlas Stones are excellent for building up total body strength, particularly in the back, legs, arms, and grip.

2. Farmers Walk

Farmers Walk is a fantastic exercise for building both strength and endurance. It involves holding a heavy object in each hand and walking over a set distance. This exercise engages the whole body, but specifically the shoulders, grip strength, and lower body.

5. Log Press

Log Press is another classic Strongman exercise where you lift a specially designed log from the ground to overhead. This exercise tests the whole body's strength, with a particular focus on shoulders, arms, and back.

Integrating Strongman Exercises Into Your Training

Strongman exercises can easily be integrated into your current training routine. As these exercises often involve lifting and carrying heavy weights over distances, they help to build strength and endurance throughout the body in a functional and practical way. They offer a great complement to traditional strength training and can help improve your performance in other sports or activities.
