Nothing against CrossFit if it’s done and coached properly. Many CrossFit or GPP gyms/programs favor the barbell; the barbell (1) exposes weaknesses and (2) tests the body–I’m huge on technique, mobility, and purpose; many lift and join a program without having any of that. ? Strongman is practical and functional; cheap too. You can assess and get someone in the “game” after only a few minutes, helping them be a part of the crowd. ? Strongman: Mariusz Pudzianowski ? OLY: Ursula Papandrea; technical and no BS.
Bumpers vs metal plates: either or; as long as the weight is correct. ? OLY: Eleiko Bars | Strongman: Log
