At Ed Coan’s Powerlifting seminar in 2016 I remember him saying we should get strong all over.
So how does that become a reality?
Training from every angle helps.
Strongman training is a good example of that.
Mace Fit is too.
So here’s one exercise you can start the week with for that.
1) kneel down holding a weight with both hands
2) stand back up without using your hands or putting the weight down
You can use any kind of weight for this, like a pair of kettlebells or dumbbells held in the rack position.
A sandbag held in the Zercher position is good for this too.
My favorite is a steel mace held down by the pommel with the heavy end up.
All of these are challenging.
Do 20 reps for a warmup or finisher.
Go get ’em,
