Strongman training is the most functional type of strength and weight training, but it somehow escapes attention in a field where functional training is overused (a mix of effective and ineffective methods). The most effective type of exercise you have probably never attempted is strongman training, so it’s time you gave it a try.
Strongman competitions have moved a little bit closer to the public as a result of some strongman competitors finding success on Youtube, TV, and even in movies. These athletes’ enormous personalities and sheer size have helped them gain popularity. Sadly, there are still a number of false beliefs about what strongman training is and how to do it.
Strongman training is a big part of what we do here at Strength Ambassadors, so here’s a really simple Strongman workout plan for beginners to get you started!
Leg strength can be developed by both walking, running and of course using a leg press in the gym, however, as time passes, your legs grow acclimated to the action and may eventually reach a plateau. Your performance can be affected by this as well, which may inhibit muscle growth and just be an overall downer on your leg training progress!
Leg workouts are an important part of strength training and as the age old gym saying goes, you shouldn’t skip leg day!
As you get older, it’s crucial to maintain strong legs. You can enhance your balance to prevent falls and trips by having strong legs. The following four leg exercises can be helpful when incorporated into your leg workout, so let’s get started! Follow along with me by watching the video on our YouTube channel!
Being assessed on both work capacity and agility during competition makes strongman a unique strength sport. The time domain of the Strongman competitions is a key distinction from other strength sports.
Strongman competitors often move heavy objects as quickly as they can or for as many repetitions as they can in a limited amount of time, while there are a few maximal effort lifts. These competitions aren’t just strength competitions; they are also tests of stamina and mental fortitude.
Here at Strength Ambassadors we offer a safe space for Strongman training for both women and men at our London gym. These classes offer the basics of strongman exercises for beginners as well as training for local Strongman and Strongwoman events.
But first of all let’s explore together what Strongman training actually is and the exercises and events involved.
I frequently hear people in gyms claim that they aren’t “mobile” enough to squat all the way down. They quit squatting as a result, and miss out on all the potential benefits squatting and squat-related exercises can offer.
Due to the added difficulty getting into or holding the proper position, mobility limits in the wrists, shoulders, hip mobility and hip flexion, and ankles can limit the advantages a lifter can obtain from squats.
Squat mobility issues can also make it less enjoyable for a lifter to practise these squat depth techniques, which can lead to frustration, discomfort, or even pain and injury.
Below we’ll go through the best exercises to improve your squat mobility and overall strength training, and feel free to follow along with me in the video! With these squat mobility exercises, you’ll have improved your deep squat position in no time!
Pull-ups are a fantastic exercise for gaining muscle and upper body strength. However, there’s a reason why so few people are able to pull off this remarkable strength feat and are unable to complete enough repetitions to fully leverage the muscle-building effects of this exercise.
Pull-ups work a variety of muscles, including the biceps, rhomboids, rear deltoids, and other minor muscles, in addition to the lats, which are the largest muscle in the back. They are therefore an excellent approach to develop the posterior side of the upper body with just one exercise.
Pull-ups aid in developing back muscles, shoulder retractors, and arm strength. They can strengthen your grip while also doing wonders for your posture. Additionally, if you ever felt like changing things up a bit, you may utilise different variations to change the focus on various muscles, for simply shifting your grip position.
Follow along with me using this YouTube video as we practise some exercises to improve pull up strength together!

It’s true what they say: the “six-pack” can contribute to an efficient core workout. But when it comes to core training, having washboard abs isn’t everything—at least not in terms of performance and function!
Core stability and strength can refer to various things depending on the situation. It includes numerous muscle groups and planes of motion, all of which cooperate to either oppose undesirable trunk movement in response to an external force, to transfer force from the lower to the upper body, or to serve as a stable base from which to move the arms and legs during athletic efforts.
Having strong core muscles isn’t just important for strength, practising these core strengthening exercises is vital for optimal performance throughout fitness and ideal for maintaining spine and back health. So without further ado, let’s get to it with our 4 best core exercises for beginners!
So, you’ve plateaued with your overhead pressing and you’re looking for ways to break through that plateau. Adding some stability work and extra strength work for the muscles surrounding the shoulder girdle is a great way to do that.
At Strength Ambassadors,we know all about building strength and stability in the overhead position. We know exactly how to help lifters generate extra strength in their shoulders, whether for Crossfit, Olympic lifting, powerlifting, or simply everyday life.
Is your goal to increase the power of your deadlift? If so, you may find that improving your technique and following a few simple steps can help you achieve this goal.
But how can you improve deadlift strength? What exercises can help when aiming to increase your deadlift weight?
In this guide – and in our Youtube video – we’ll walk you through the key accessory work you need to do to keep progressing in your deadlift, including 4 key exercises to help improve deadlift strength.
Front rack mobility is a must for any weightlifter or general fitness enthusiast. It allows you to keep a more upright torso during front squats and cleans, which in turn can help you lift more weight and improve your form.
