What is MOdified Strongman?


Strongman competitors are among the most powerful, most versatile athletes in the sporting world. Strength, power, stamina, functionality; you name the strength and conditioning component, these human bulldozers have it.

Making use of all the training toys you’d expect to see in competitive strongman, Modified Strongman Training are strongman exercises adapted to suit any level of fitness; if you are bustling with muscle or have never lifted a weight before.

Modified Strongman Training is a no holds barred workout that will leave you heart pounding and dripping with sweat, whether you are a pro athlete or complete beginner, male or female.

A typical session could see you flipping tyres, pushing or dragging weighted sleds, performing farmers walks and a lot more!
