Poundstone Power: Train Like a Strongman

A lack of tractor tires and a yoke frame doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the benefits of strongman training. Four strongman exercises can easily be done in any gym—tractor tire flips, the circus dumbbell lift, the farmer's walk,and the crucifix hold. A heavy bag is a decent replacement for a tire the circus dumbbell has a close cousin in the push press, and both the farmer's walk and crucifix hold only require dumbbells.

THE MOVES

PUSH PRESS

Set up for a military press, but use plenty of leg drive.

HEAVY BAG FLIP

Squat low, scoop up one end of the bag, and flip it hard.

FARMER’S WALK

Use the heaviest dumbbells you can manage.

CRUCIFIX HOLD

Stop a lateral raise at the top of the move. Hold for time.
