Harness The Golden Era of The Strongman
This unique strength training book will teach you how to use traditional methods to get real results. With it in your arsenal, you will:
Discover the Art of Strength: Sure, grip strength is a competitive sport and a highly useful skill. But the oldtime strongmen turned strength into something else — a work of art. This approach to grip strength training can show you how to use your own feats of strength and mental grit to amaze others. Whether you're an athlete or a beginner, this no-insecurities approach to your own abilities is a game-changer.
Build Incredible Muscles: One quality of the traditional strongman is that you can SEE their strength. If you want a head-turning physique, this training manual will teach you the correlation between looking strong and being strong, and show you how to build muscle mass as well as skill.
Learn from a Champion: The author of this book, Robert “Eisenhans” Spindler, has over twenty years of experience in strength sports, with ten years spent on stage as a performing strongman. He is a two-time Austrian powerlifting champion, a British grip champion, has lifted the Dinnie Stones and the Inver Stone, can bend horseshoes at an international level, and is able to lift more than 100kg with his teeth. Safe to say you're in good hands (and teeth).
Impress Your Friends: You don't want to stand alone in your kitchen crushing potatoes with your palms or ripping up phone books. You want to impress and amaze your friends! As well as giving you all the techniques you need to master many incredible feats of strength, this training book focuses on the mental and performance aspects of impressing an audience using just your mind and your muscles.
Use your Grip to Dominate: There's very few sports or fitness activities that don't require a strong grip, and the traditional training techniques demonstrated in this book can be applied to all areas of your life. Classic strongman training isn't just for performances; it can help you dominate in arm wrestling, rock climbing, martial arts, weightlifting or whatever you set your mind to.
You might think a classic strongman's best friend is a huge dumbbell or a ready-to-bend cast iron pan. But there's one thing you'll be using ALL THE TIME when you train, no matter what feat of strength you're tackling - a big bag of powdered chalk. Whether you're lifting a horse, bending a bicycle or pulling a car, grab some from our online store to make sure your Hulk-like grip isn't ruined by your sweaty palms.
