The use of strongman-type events in the training of athletes is rapidly gaining in popularity. Events such as farmers walk, tire flip, log press and keg loading have been converted over to extremely productive training tools for all athletes--not just those interested in strongman competition. This style of training is easily incorporated into an athlete's current training program and has numerous benefits, such as: Explosiveness, training of the posterior chain, core stabilization and emphasis on simultaneous triple extension of the ankles, knees and hips. Baier and Hammer go over several of the main strongman events that can be used in training for sport and give numerous variations, examples and demonstrations of each exercise. The following event categories are presented: "Logs and Axles;" "Carries and Lifts;" "Tire Flipping;" "Kegs;" "Throws" and "Pushes, Pulls and Drags." Functional Strongman Training for Sport is an excellent introduction to this style of training and a must see DVD for any coach who is looking to take his athletes' training to the next level!
