Strongman is one hour filled with movements that provide a playground where athletes can test their brute strength while improving their conditioning. This is the best way we have found to favor strength while still increasing work capacity across broad time and modal domains. Due to the often awkward size and shape of the objects we use in strongman, it brings lifting to another level.
This is a perfect expression of Old School Movements mixed with New School programming and the results are staggering.
In strongman the equipment is taken to a whole new level. For example, concrete stones could be used for cleans and deadlifts, axle bars could be used for regular bars, and kegs could be used for push press. In strongman you never know what new object the coach may decide to use in the WOD.
