5 Strongman Events
1 / Tire Flip
The tire flip is an explosive movement that requires a triple extension of the hips, knees and ankles. Flip as many times as possible and use this as a finisher to any of your workouts.
2 / Farmer's Walk
The farmer's walk tests your functional strength in grip, upper back and core. The farmer's walk can also be performed with dumbbells.
3 / Overhead Press
The overhead press in strongman can be tested in several different ways. You can use a log, axle, barbell or dumbbells. The overhead press is one of the best complete tests of strength.
4 / Sandbag Carry
Sandbags are one of the best tests for grip strength, arms and back power. This carry should be performed as fast as possible.
5 / Atlas Stone
The atlas stone is a good test of your quadriceps, core and manhood. Pull the weight tight into chest and drive through reps with your hips.
