Hey all, I’m looking for ideas for tools, equipment, accessories, etc, that could be useful for doing strongman lifts in a regular gym. The items could either be purchased (like chain) or built (since I like building things and want to make my own equipment). Obviously something like a prowler or tire isn’t practical to bring into a facility so it has to meet the criteria of being reasonably transportable.
What I think would make a big difference:
2" dia or bigger steel pipe - a chain can be fitted through it to weights to make a great grip workout
Collars with hooks - again, chains can be hooked to the collar to emulate things like overhead pressing a keg or odd shaped implement
Loadable dumbbell (handmade or purchased) - fit it with 25lb plates and you have yourself a basic circus dumbbell for pressing.
