STILL Going STRONG
You don’t need a 4,500kg truck or half a dozen kegs to mimic strongman moves. WSM podium finisher Terry Hollands shares his gym routine
HANG HIGH PULL
‘We do a specialised strongman clean, but you can use this basic move to develop power,’ says Hollands. Hold a bar at thigh height, then drive your hips forward and lift it to chest height explosively.
WIDE-GRIP BEHIND-THE-NECK PRESS
‘This mimics the movement without testing your balance so much,’ says Hollands. Hold a light bar behind your neck with a wide grip and press it overhead.
‘It’s difficult to toss heavy things around indoors,’ says Hollands, ‘but the explosiveness
is similar to a kettlebell swing.’ Snap forward at the hips and bring the bell up until it’s overhead.
