Get Strong and Thick With Strongman Exercises

Posted Thursday, April 10, 2014

Anyone familiar with me knows I like big, compound exercises and heavy weight. Athletes benefit from doing big lifts far more than from toe-touching bodyweight moves. At Ultimate Advantage, we incorporate Strongman exercises into our training to make our athletes strong and thick.

Strongman exercises include anything you may see in a Strongman competition, like Yoke Walks, Farmer's Walks, Tire Flips, Drags and Atlas Stones. They're not traditional movements, so they add variety to a program.

We don't do Strongman workouts exclusively, but we incorporate this style of exercise with more traditional compound barbell movements like Squats.
