The benefits of GPP have been clearly explained and extolled in numerous articles on this site. The problem however, lies in the material needed to conduct proper periodization of such exercises; the material requires both extra expenses and storage.
Sledgehammers of different weights must be purchased, you must find (and then transport) heavy and unwieldy tires each time you use them, sleds/wheelbarrows must have extra resistance added, and kegs of differing weights must be ?removed? from the back of restaurants/liquor stores.
What this post is not; a bashing of many styles of GPP. What this post is; a call to those who have yet to embrace GPP because they lack the necessary implements to realize that they most likely already possess/have access to a rather universal one, a vehicle.
To those without lawns for wheelbarrows, backyards for keg tosses/wheel flipping, who can?t afford a variety of sledgehammers, or who live in apartments or high rises in urban environments where such strongman GPP is very difficult?you have a car, you have roads.
Car GPP can be done in multiple ways also, pushing, pulling, facing the car or facing away from it. Before I am jumped by member who love to flame, I to know that the inherently unwieldiness of many GPP implements are their for our benefit and that a car is far more expensive than a sled, but for some who are less financially well off, a vehicle is a necessity for work, a sled is not.
Let it also be known that in my very small college apartment, I have 3 kegs (and only one still has a tap in it
Please post good links to good car GPP articles also.
