Nick Pratt - Fitnance Trainee & Strongman


I train about 5 or 6 days a week and one of those days I train for the strongman events.
Each work out in the gym lasts around 1hr and 30mins with about 6 exercises per a work out. I find the most effective way for me to train is to break my work outs down to body parts or movements. I always like to train major muscle groups at least 2 times a week (such as legs, shoulders and back).
A lot of my training is based on strengthening and conditioning each muscle with a small amount of body building. I like to keep a fair amount of my training low reps with heavy weights and a high number of sets. I find I get the best results are from 1 or 2 basic and major exercises per a work out and keep and rest to support muscles and muscles that would help with the certain movement.


Until I get some of my own equipment I am only training with strongman implements once a week. On that day we normally train for around 3-4hrs starting with eater supper yoke, farmers walk or log press and then ending on the atlas stones because they are always last in the competition. To warm up with the walks we normally start with a lightweight and walk for distance then move the weight heavier just for about 25m (eg start with 55kg a hand for 50m end with 125kg for 25m).
Training for the stones normally starts with a fairly light stone and does it for reps moving up weights after each set then we Try to aim for our 1RM stone after that we drop back down to a lighter stone and see how high we can get it over the bar.
