BRING STRONGMAN TRAINING TO THE GYM
Not everyone has Atlas stones in the garden. Here’s how to improvise
43 For Fingal’s finger use… A BARBELL
Prop it up in the corner of your gym and stack up the bumper plates on one end. Lift it by the “sleeve”, then get underneath it to push it upright. Try to bring it down gently.
44 For Conan’s wheel use… A SANDBAG
Grab your gym’s heaviest bag – even 30kg will do – and hold it Zercher-style in the crooks of your elbows as you do a circuit of the gym. You’ll build barbaric strength, and biceps.
45 For farmer’s walk use… DUMBBELLS
Just grab the heaviest pair your gym has and take them for a walk, one in each hand. Aim for sets of 20m with 30-second rests in between.
