Perform Strongman exercises correctly

by Nordic Training Gear 2 min read

Strongman exercises are known for building strength, endurance, and functional fitness. However, to optimize your results and minimize the risk of injury, it is important that you perform these exercises correctly. In this article, we take a look at how you can ensure you are performing some of the most popular Strongman exercises correctly.

Atlas Stones

Lifting Atlas Stones is a complex exercise that requires proper technique to avoid injuries. Make sure you warm up properly and start with a lighter stone until you are comfortable with the movement. When lifting the stone, bend your hips and knees, keep your back straight and lift with your legs, not your back. Once the stone is in the knee position, encircle it with your arms and stand up by extending your hips.

Perform Strongman exercises correctly

Farmers Walk

To perform the Farmers Walk, stand between the "suitcases", bend your hips and knees and grab the "suitcases" with a firm grip. Keep your back straight as you stand up and start walking with short, quick steps. Keep your chest high and shoulders back throughout the movement.

Yoke Walk

When performing the Yoke Walk, adjust the height so that the yoke rests on your shoulders without touching the ground. Step under the yoke, position it over your shoulders and lift it by straightening your legs. Keep your back straight and start walking with short, controlled steps. Focus on maintaining a strong core throughout the movement.

Tire Flip

When performing a Tire Flip, stand close to the tire with your feet shoulder-width apart. Bend your hips and knees, keep your back straight and grip the bottom of the tire. Lift the tire by extending your hips and knees, and use momentum to flip the tire. Make sure you're not lifting with your back, but rather with your legs and hips.

Log Press

For the Log Press, stand over the log and bend your hips and knees to grip it. Lift it to your hip first, much like a deadlift. Squat down, press the log against you and reposition your grip if necessary. Then lift the log up over your chest by rolling/turning the log and then press upward until your arms are fully extended. Keep your back straight and your core engaged throughout the movement.

Circus Dumbbell

With the Circus Dumbbell, start by swinging the dumbbell from the ground to your shoulder. Then stand upright and hold the dumbbell by one end so that it rests on your shoulder. Use your leg strength to drive the movement and push the dumbbell overhead. Make sure to keep your core engaged and press the weight straight up.
