The Key to Real World Strength
Today’s video was inspired by the Farm Strong environment
Even more so by the act of ‘doing work’ aka work capacity which is held in high regard here on the farm and yet seem to allude almost all in the fitness industry.
Today we look at real world application at it finest in something we call the Farm Strong Press.
Which carries a mix of 3 different lifts:
–Power Clean: FarmStrong taking hay bales
from ground to chest.
-Bench Press: accelerating press at approx. chest level.
-Overhead Press: completing a press at head level or higher.
At Farm Strong we are strong believers in the overhead press and its need in expressing shoulder functional mobility and strength.
Even though it is waning in popularity among many in the ‘functional fitness’ world.
The Farms Strong Press maybe the perfect functional formula for shoulder health and functionality especially
when performed with the Ultimate Sandbag Training neutral grips.
Also with the Farm Strong Press we should light on the key DVRT tenet of implement dimension which I
think the hay bale illustrates very successfully.
Let’s take a look what we have with the Farm Strong Press
It’s not uncommon to perform 100’s of reps of the Farm Strong Press during the course of an afternoon.
Here’s what you have in application:
Bi-Lateral Strength/Power – Med Load – High Reps
Natural Press/Strength – Med Load – High Reps
