    A clear and methodical breakdown of the elements involved in strongman training, which greatly simplifies how to train for what can feel like a bewilderingly broad range of events. Extra helpful for myself as an over 40 MMA enthusiast, who wants straightforward yet comprehensive workouts.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    My husband and I have been doing this program for about 6 weeks and are both seeing a tremendous difference in our strength and endurance. The program totally suits our style and we will continue with StartingStrongman guidance/literature for the foreseeable future! Thanks soooo much!!!
