    Programming Strongman

    I tried to look up programs but basically everything I found was basically a regular power lifting program but with a day for events.

    The main reason I got into strongman recently is that I kinda fell out of love with the gym in general, and the event stuff is so damn fun.

    So I basically have my regular workout plan, except between my warmup and my "regular" workout I do 2-4 events with enough volume basically until I feel close to too tired to do the rest of my "regular" lifts.

    I'm sure this isn't the right way to go about things, I do really like the owner/other trainers at my gym but I don't really want to compete so paying for that sort of help seems a bit silly.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated!

    Definitely agree, using the strongman implements can be hella fun and great way to keep things fresh (but productive). If I was going to structure this into my training, there's a couple of ideas that come to mind:

    Set-up 1: M/W/F/Sa, with M/W/F dedicated to the powerlifts and Saturday being events time; training powerlifts 2 or 3 of those days
    Set-up 2: Utilise a strongman movement or two at the end of each workout

    I would recommend checking out Brandon Lilly's 365Strong Cube program, or Cube Method for Strongman. Both of those are well structured programs that would marry the powerlifts and strongman training in an intelligent way.
