I do a strongman workout for fun on off days. With whatever I can find. And do all the events in my yard which is very sandy. It adds an extra element of difficulty because traction is variable and if you are pulling or dragging something it will dig into the sand.
Sled drag is pulled backwards, wood frame with long chain for handle, concrete blocks added to increase weight.
Farmers walks with buckets filled with sand, plates or dumbells added to increase weight.
150 feet - walk to barrel 75 feet then turn and come back. Also do this with a slosh pipe.
10# Sledge hammer to beat old truck tire, strap tied to tire so partner can hold it to keep it from moving
Long rope tied to another old truck tire still on rim with break drum still bolted on (found in front yard by the road) This is for pulling hand over hand - think of tug of war. pulling it through the sand makes it harder, concrete blocks or plates added to increase weight
Push truck down the driveway, long paved driveway with very slight incline, hard in one direction but easier going the other way. Still works the legs even going down the slight incline. 1/4 ton truck, jeep, 1/2 ton truck, and motor home to adjust weight. (motor home JK, we are not there yet).
We tried doing the events in circuit, and running between each station, including hopping a fence to a rope climb in a tree to end the circuit. But we were so winded that it took all the fun out of it. It would be nice to be in condition to handle that but that is not really our main focus. So we do the events in sets of three then move to the next one.
