Strongman Training!

I’ve always loved watching World’s Strongest Man, but being a bit on the wee side I’ve never done any specific ‘strongman’ training myself. All this is to change though, in the interests of keeping it fresh, improving strength and hav ing a laugh, I’m going ot mis the following into my programme in the next few weeks:
