Agility drills aren’t widely used in strongman competitions, but they’re a valuable companion to strongman training. They are an important transformational tool, improving explosiveness, footwork, change of direction and muscle control (just to name a few).
Combining a strongman apparatus (in this case, a wheelbarrow) with agility drills for speed, change of direction and quickness can increase the metabolic demands placed on an athlete’s body, teaching muscle control and giving the athlete an appropriate advantage over his or her opponent.
The drills shown above will challenge your mind, keep you in a competitive environment and help you lose body fat without compromising muscle tissue. They will get your core muscles stronger and increase your muscular power and endurance.
