Strongman training at the Jiu-Jitsu and Strength Academy is an old-school, no B.S. – Strength and Power program that is fun, interesting and always challenging.

You will use a variety of exercises and implements to train your body to develop true “functional” strength from head to toe. You will perform some basic strength exercises as well as some un-orthodox exercises that will make your stronger, faster, and more athletic.

Some sample exercises are:

  • Squats and Deadlifts
  • Overhead Pressing
  • Tire Flipping
  • Truck Pushing / Pulling (Harness)
  • Sled Dragging
  • Farmer’s Walks
  • Sanbag Carrys, Loading and Pressing
  • Sledgehammer Work
  • Keg Carrys, Loading, Tossing, Pressing
  • Stone Lifting
  • Grip Strength Training
  • Body-weight Exercises
  • More!

The beauty of strongman training is that there’s no one way to perform the exercises. You usually end up improvising to complete the event. In other words, things don’t usually go according to plan! The tire doesn’t always flip over the same way. The sled doesn’t always glide easily over the surface. The farmers walk implements don’t remain stationary as you zigzag through your course and the sand in the sandbag moves all over the place when you try to lift it.

The awkwardness of these events builds true, “functional” strength from head to toe. This enables you to strengthen muscles that are nearly impossible to strengthen with traditional weight training.

Strongman training is for EVERYONE! You don’t have to be a 300lb monster to do strongman training. We have men, women, and people of ALL ages strongman training and having a blast doing it. Plus, the JSA is completely different then any other gym you’ve ever been to. There are NO egos and NO BS – just hard training that makes results.

Matt Bryers, a Certified WSM PoundStone Performance Strongman Coach, Crossfit Strongman Certified and Strongman Competitor will program and lead these strongman workouts. All you need to do is show up and get ready to work!
