Starting Strongman (Strongman)

We have been putting together some gear for doing more strongman work. We started with building a homemade 2″ axle bar, then ordering some Spud Inc. Straps for Yoke walks and today our 70lb log bar arrived. This was our first time doing the yoke walks and the log clean and press. Only our 3rd or fourth time each trying continental cleans with the axle bar. We finished things off with some farmers carries.

Neither of us by any means plan on competing in strongman. Just like how neither of us our competitive powerlifters or bodybuilders. But doing this strongman work is a fun way to get in shape and test our bodies in different ways.

Next up for us will probably be a keg for lifting/carrying, a circus Bell and some atlas stones.
