I have read several posts asking about adding Strongman events as essentially key parts to those peoples programs, but I am completely new to Strongman and just want to spend time getting better at some of the events. I would like to spend just 10-20 minutes each workout practicing and getting more familiar with some of the events. Strongman also uses a little more biceps strength than Powerlifting. I don’t like working my biceps, but if I have to, could I do 3x10 one day/week and not count it as a pulling movement in the recommended 25-50 pulling reps? I dont think biceps curls should count as a pulling movement for powerlifting. I think to count as a pulling movement an exercise should work your back. I’m doing the God is a Beast leader template right now. So could I do something like this?..

I want to repeat that I’m new to Strongman and just want to get some more practice with the movements. I’m not trying to work hard on prepping for a Strongman meet and want to only spend 10-20 minutes on the event taking my time to prepare for the event to reinforce good form. I would be doing the Yoke Walk on Friday so I have the weekend to recover from that. Thank you!
