Stop procrastinating and begin your healthy life today!
Any manual labor
What level of development are you at? A complete beginner to lifting weights may not be able to safely use implements.
I've never done strongman at all before
Hey retard I meant what are your lifts
Lol, not him but get your lifts and bodyweight to at least advanced tier before attempting any strongman, what's your height
>at least advanced tier before attempting any strongman
Why does it make sense to delay skill development?
You still have beginner gains to make if you finish SS. Skill doesn't matter when the implements are too heavy and you aren't even at baseline strength to train them. You should finish SS and then do the four day Texas method split to completion and then join a strongman club where they will guide your programming.
>four day texas method
Great argument retard
>Why does it make sense to delay skill development?
Because you don't have the strength development to put up weight of any significance, If you don't have at least advanced strength like 90kg OHP/140kg bench/180kg squat/200kg deadlift you'll still be making baseline strength gains in an inefficient way when you should just be learning how to lift the different objects. Like
says you should just continue SS if you haven't capped out newb gains which I suspect you haven't cuz unless you have really light bones you are like 10% body fat or less then you should run the Texas method since you don't seem to care about aesthetics
texas method is not a good program
If he only cares about strength it is a good program
No, it's shit for strength
Can you name a better program?
Basically any strength program that's come out from BBM
>Anything from RTS, BBM
Just find a strongman gym, or a novice comp somewhere. Bunch of top guys started out just by doing lots of comps when they didn't have equipment.
Starting Strongman (Kalle Beck) or Cube Method for Strongman both work for beginners.
Same as a beginner powerlifting program but do ohp as well, lots of people spend way to much time focusing on events and forget that you need to be strong first.
Overhead dumbbell presses
It's hard to get into strongman training without any of the implements though. Nothing exactly mimics log or yoke or atlas stones. Also you'll be pretty much completely neglecting chest so you'll look like shit unless you're roiding which if you want to compete at all you'll have to be.
I don't care about competing; I just want to be strong in unique ways instead of over being strong in a 1 inch bench press or wide stance sumo deadlift
Why not just do a normal rom bench press and normal rom squat
Those are still just two exercise. I want to be able to carry odd objects, to press odd objects, to train both max strength and endurance
complete linear progression>move to up/lo split with volume day and intensity day (TM/Madcow)> go for conjugate method when your stats are advanced intermediate or early advanced and incorporate as many shit as you want
you guys need to visit /plg/ some time
>literal tranime general
Nobody there lifts
Breddy sure the beginner strongman program is realising you are stronger than everyone at your gym as an untrained teenager.
start doing zercher deadlifts.
farmer carries and zercher and regular deadlifts will be your main lifts if you're in a regular gym.
there's one strongman at my gym and he's a badass. does a lot of his work with the log bar or yoke, which we have at our gym. everything else seems like accessory to the work he does with these. it's fun to watch.
Yeah, working on a farm.
