Ok, A little background. I am a United States Marine and a Fairly decent powerlifter. We recently started a team on Camp Pendleton and have seen quite a bit of success in our past three meets. We are probably a group of the strongest Marines on Pendleton…or so we thought
I have never trained or competed in a strongman competition…but a few weeks ago I saw a flyer about a “Strongest Warrior Competition” That consisted of your usual Stone Carries, Farmers Walk, Humvee Pull, Tire Flip, etc. So I figured what the hell I’m stronger than most any Marine I have seen in the gyms on base. So I went…and got fuckin spanked!
I still had a good time…My question is would incorporating some strong man type training be beneficial to my powerlifting? Endurance and such. and also some advice on incorporating it into our training.
We Train Westside so Im not sure if it would be to much to incorporate alot of strongman stuff but some would be good right? if so Some ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks
