hi guys newbie here, unsure how many strongmen are on here but you have a subforum all about it so there must be enough intrest lol
basically i have been training at a strongman gym for the last three years, but only just started training the events in the last year.
because its a strongman gym ive been to the events they host and watched friends compete, but this time i thought id give it a shot.
ill get a list of the events i did have a copy of them but i cant find it.
im looking for tips on technique etc.
im pretty strong at pressing my bench is 140kg max log over head max is 105kg
metal block press 80kg for 5 reps etc.
one of the events i havent done before is hand over hand seated truck pull.
now just so you know this is a novice event so weights are lower.
any tips on things that could give me the edge or lifts to train with to help in events.
i can lift the atlas stones up to 110kg 125kg i just can get lapped.
the last 3 months ive started squatting and deadlifting (i was all about the upper body before lol)
my squat has went from 120kg to 170kg in that time and deadlift from 140kg to 190kg in that time also.
Would changing from back squat to front squat be better for these strongman events?
sorry for all the questions lol
Many thanks jamie.
