Men's Fitness - - News -

Most peo­ple think World’s Strong­est Man com­peti­tors are to be mar­velled at rather than em­u­lated – af­ter all, you’re never go­ing to have to pull an 18-wheeler truck or heft a gi­gan­tic log over­head, are you? But the pow­er­ful and func­tional com­pound move­ments of strongman train­ing can ben­e­fit ev­ery­one, not just man-moun­tains. A study from New Zealand com­pared two groups per­form­ing strongman and tra­di­tional re­sis­tance train­ing over seven weeks and found that the strongman group saw benefits in mus­cle mass gain and their one-rep max. You’ll find strongman kit in plenty of gyms across the coun­try now, so make a

start on the moves be­low and get a big­ger, stronger ev­ery­thing this year.
