Old Time Strongman Training Methods

On January 24, 2014 by Matthew Chan


Many of the old timers were professional performers who had to perform on a regular basis, and as part of a circus, they traveled often. Because of this, these strongmen were not able to stick to a regular training routine with a set list of exercises, sets and reps. Instead, they stuck to a set of training principles that prepared them for their exhibitions without burning themselves out. Their training schedule depended on when they were performing. Making a living as circus strongmen also allowed the old timers to focus solely on their craft. Also, many of them may have been genetically gifted.

Hopefully, the information presented above will have given you some ideas on what you can incorporate into your own training in order to build muscle and strength. Combined with an appropriate diet, you too can achieve a legendary physique with the strength the back it up!
