  1. Steve

    In my opinion, these templates are easily the best way to get into Strongman training (short of getting individual programming).
    They give you a good appreciation for how to structure the week and what appropriate training volumes & intensity are for Strongman.
    And there is a support forum for the templates if you’ve got any questions about them, different equipment / exercises etc.

  2. Jay Woodhouse

    I really enjoy having these Strongman Training Templates! They take a lot of guesswork and thinking out of your daily training and they are really great workouts! If you have a contest coming up, you have to do some adjusting on your own or get their online coaching. But for a wide variety of training with strongman implements and general strength and conditioning principles, these are really great! I would recommend these to anyone looking to start or continue their strongman training!

  3. Ben Gallaher

    These templates are great. Takes all the guesswork out of programming with simple easy to understand instructions. Definitely recommend for beginner to intermediate trainees. πŸ‘πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

    These templates are great, simple to follow and affordable. I’ve used them as is, incorporated them into other programming and would recommended them to others who need guidance but aren’t able to afford a coach immediately.

    Great templates! So much easier than self programming, plus the price is quite the deal! I’m definitely gonna keep using these templates because of the gainzzzz!!!

  6. David M (verified owner)

    Outstanding value and something that is definitely needed in the strongman training space! If you want strongman-oriented programming that isn’t just a 12-week spreadsheet, this is it. It’s the perfect option if you’re not ready to spend the money for individual programming or coaching.

    I cannot say enough good things about these templates.
    I had an entire years worth of template training and I loved it.
    The value here is incredible. The app used is easy to follow and great for tracking your progress.
    I competed for the first time in a strongman comp and placed, using these templates . A deadlift pr and overhead pr were obtained during my training as well.
    The training is fun and varied and WORKS!

    Extremely good templates if you’re looking to get into training strongman. Only reason I stopped was because I got a personal coach. Highly recommend getting these.
