Strongman for everyone

Jason Nunn just had an excellent article published over at EliteFTS.

A New Approach to Strongman Training for the General Population

Essentially, it's a look at popular strongman-style training - the tire flip, farmer's walk, and overhead pressing. Why are they good to do, and why they might be contraindicated* for some trainees. It's a quick read, and if you have clients train this way or you do it yourself, click over and check it out.


* A fancy way to say "not good for."

  2. No problem Jason. Thanks for reading my blog!

    I had a friend read that before I taught him to flip a tire, too, because I wanted him to know how to do it. It's good stuff and I'm happy to link to it.
