For years I struggled with how to set up my strength training program. There were so many programs out there, but so few were set up for a strongman competitor. I tried nearly all the major strength training programs out there. Overtime, I adapted and evolved the protocols to meet my needs. I kept the principles and exercises that were working and ditched the ones that didn’t. This was a tedious trial and error process.
The Refuge Method was born out of all this tedious trial and error. The Refuge Method is not revolutionary in itself, rather it contains a lot of tried and true strength building principles. The Refuge Method is a simple and effective way to structure these strength building principles into an effective training split for the strongman competitor.
This is the method I used to work my way to becoming an American Strongman Corporation Lightweight Professional Strongman. Does that make me a genius or an expert? No, but what it does mean is I have put in the time to figure out what works. It took me a long time to figure out what worked and I just want to share that knowledge. Strongman has given so much to me I just wanted to do my part to give a little back.
