I’m 16 and have been interested in strongman since a young age, I have a good foundation of strength from a year’s training and have just started doing powerlifting training, but my real interest is strongman. I’m 5’8" and 165lbs at the moment but still gaining, I won’t grow much taller, if at all.
Basically, my question is, should I carry on with my powerlifting training to build muscle and strength before focussing in on strongman training, or should I taper my training towards strongman? I don’t have any equipment to train with but I’ve read about all sorts of alternatives to do in the gym.
Also, am I tall enough to do any serious competing? At 165lbs, I’m not huge, but my frame is very broad, so I know I could pack a lot more healthy weight on, so weight isn’t an issue, it’s just my height that concerns me, any thoughts?
