Steve Maxwell: Nasty Circuit at the Natur Training centre
Posted Jul 01 2010 12:00am
Well the Calgary Stampede is in full effect here in cowtown. Since I am not brave enough to ride bulls or wrestle steers, I stuck to some awesome partying and managed to sneak in a Strongman Workout at the Bells of Steel world headquarters.
The King of Kensington Strongman Contest is coming up fast so I am trying to focus my training as much as possible on this event by doing the actual events. Even if you aren't planning on competing in strongman, I highly recommend you use implements or any odd objects you can find for variety's sake. It will keep your training fresh and fun while forcing your body to adapt.
Here is the workout we did
working up to 500lbs
using a 173lbs stone
using 180lbs log
one set to failure at the end
