Abstract

This article examines research surrounding the acute physiological responses to strongman training. To gain a greater understanding of the existing research to strongman training, acute physiological responses are compared with that seen during common forms of gym-based resistance training. Based on the research, evidencebased guidelines are recommended for strength and conditioning coaches looking to implement strongman training into a training program.
