It is apparent that its due time for an all around well written manual on Strongman. I have seen manuals and have a few, but none are all that great. They basically tell you what THEY do and you’re supposed to mirror this. Would love to at least see a manual that gives…
1.) Professional instruction on all the events, proper form and such (understood there are a ton)
2.) Professional tips on assistance exercises (what works and what doesn’t…cutting the crap)
3.) Professional tips on the best conditioning methods
4.) Routines that cover a wide variety of weekly and daily structures, lift combinations, and also tiered for beginners all the way to professionals (simply put, DO THIS workouts)
5.) Professional tips on warm-ups, cool-downs, stretching, recovery work etc… that applies better to the Strongman versus what applies to the general fitness populace.
6.) Possibly a section that gives people ways to make their own Strongman implements, or how to find what they need for lowest cost.
This manual would be great written by all the past winners of the World’s Strongest Man competition.
I understand that this would turn into an epic tome probably larger than War and Peace but it would be absolutely worth it and it might help expand the Strongman world and make it an even bigger sport. Wishful thinking? Absolutely! I just don’t get how someone has not thought of doing this yet.
If I am just absolutely blind and could not find a manual that fits this description please point me to it!
