Imagine for a moment that you’re an ex-athlete at the ripe old age of 54.
You’ve spent the better part of your life training for high school, college,
amateur and perhaps professional competition. You’ve run the bleachers,
slammed your body fearlessly into tackling dummies and completed
conditioning circuits so challenging that you could literally feel the earth
spinning on its axis beneath your feet.
At my gym www.StrengthCamp.com you’ll typically find high school
and college athletes pushing their physical, mental and emotional limits to
achieve their athletic potential. You will also find the fathers of many of
these athletes training directly afterward – and in some cases during the
same sessions with their sons, who are often thirty years younger than them.
When these athletically inclined fathers observed the exhilaratingly hard
work in which their “strapping young boys” were partaking, their primal urge
began to boil up deep within their souls and they couldn’t resist joining us
in our tire flipping, sled dragging and field romping sessions. Today, my
Men’s Fitness Camp is a service in St. Petersburg that has become notorious
for causing grown men to sweat, cry and VOMIT. A key ingredient in this
concussion causing cocktail is a crucifix-like contraption that lays flat,
is white and black, and makes “Free Trial” members never come back. It’s
called The Prowler.
Grown men and young athletes enjoy nothing better then healthy competition.
I will often conduct sessions that include Strongman medleys similar to
those that I see in my local and national level Strongman competitions. A
medley includes 3-5 different “odd” implements that competitors are expected
to pull, push, drag, press, flip or throw.
In the examples below I will show you several different Strongman medleys,
how we conduct them, and where The Prowler makes her appearance. If you are
a slothful, overweight powerlifter or a skinny and smooth-bodied
synchronized diver, I deliver you this WARNING: These medleys WILL make you
sick, so don’t actually do them. They are only intended for “hard nosed”
ex-athletes and jarheads who thoroughly enjoy the pain associated with hard
work and dry heaving. This article is meant for entertainment purposes only
and it is in your best interest to read this it and then completely forget
everything you’ve read. Thank you.
