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."


  1. Hey Pete, was just doing some back reading and came across this. Thanks for reading!

  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.
