I think everyone should incorporate some form of strongman training into their workouts. The loaded caries will challenge the core musculature like no plank, crunch, or even squat ever could.
Here's my write up, including some exercise examples and the effects of strongman training on free testosterone.

This topic was just recently a research base for faculty at my school (Hofstra University). They viewed the effect of strongman training on salivary free test levels when compared to hypertrophy based protocols and a mixed programing. Their findings were rather interesting, regarding immediate post workout levels. I tried to pull up the study but it was published so recently that it was only available for purchase.

Very nice write up I have to say I'm in agreement with all points raised especially the intro had me reminiscing.

Yes, good stuff and nice work on those vids to guy.
With the advent of WSM being more mainstreamed and popular in the last 5-10 years, it has come out of the caves since the days of star football players wheeling tires across parking lots and the bigger Oly and PL'ers dominating. Some guys figured it could be a cake walk from one sport to the other and quickly found their GPP, work capacity and fitness levels being quite a limiting factor.

every other sunday i do strongman training at a small gym. i love the change up in training. and it is humbling how much technique some of that stuff still requires.
my fav lifts are the log, the farmers, and anything with pulling a car whether its the rowing one or the harness/pull.
you can call me "ozzie" for short.
