First Ever Strongman Training Workshop
It didn’t take long for the feedback to start coming in on the Intro to Strongman DVD that Steve Slater and I released last week.
My fellow Pennsylvanian, Mike Puchalski, one of the first to order the DVD, was also the first one to hit me back on it. He writes:
“I watched it last night. I really enjoyed it. A lot of great info on it. Great job bro.”
Thanks a lot for the awesome feedback, Mike!
Also, this morning, I received a mail order from Michael Malfi. Along with his order, he also sent a note and it says:
“This DVD was well over-due for late comers to Strongman like myself. I hope this DVD is well received by the strength community.”
Thanks, Michael. Damn glad to provide you with the information you need to succeed, get strong, and stay healthy!
If you haven’t picked this DVD up yet, I encourage you to do it. Steve Slater and I loaded this thing with solid info on some of the most common Strongman Events, so that anyone looking to get involved would be able to get going on the right foot.

After all, working hands-on is the absolute best way to truly learn how to do something right.
So Steve and I put our heads together on how we can make this happen and we decided that there’s no sense in waiting!
On Sunday, July 17, 2011, Steve and I are going to present the first ever Strongman Training Workshop in Lancaster, Ohio.
This will be an information-intensive workshop where we will go over the basics of several powerful strongman events and then you will get the chance to participate by working out on the pieces of equipment.
The Strongman Training Workshop will cover many issues related to proper technique using strongman equipment so the athlete or coach can master the fundamentals of the strongman events. It is well known that strongman events and their dynamics carry over to sport more so than conventional gym lifts however one must use proper technique with these lifts to launch new strength gains.
No matter how strong you are you can always develop better technique to lower the chance of injury and this is what this workshop is about.
We have introduced many athletes to the sport of strongman and the first time they pick up a log, flip a tire or lift a stone, they need instruction on how to do these things properly just like they did with a barbell when they first started.
It is our goal with the Strongman Training Workshop to show you how to use Strongman events to get stronger, healthier and increase your physical performance.
As a BONUS we will also include a seminar by Dr. Eric Serrano, a field expert when it comes to strength training and nutrition. At the conclusion of Dr. Eric Serrano’s seminar Steve Slater will discuss techniques on how he makes his Slater Atlas Stones so you to can make the best stones possible.
This is the layout for this killer Strongman Workshop:
- 8:00 Registration
- 8:30 Networking / Meet-and-Greet
- 9:00 Intro to Strongman Preview
- 9:30 Gear and Warm-ups
- 10:00 Atlas Stones / Odd Objects
- 11:00 Overhead Lifting
- 12:00 Tire and Carrying Events
- 1:00 lunch
- 2:00 Dr. Serrano
- 3:00 Making Atlas Stones with Steve Slater
- 4:00 Review / Q & A
- 5:00 Closing Comments
Each segment will begin with a solid demonstration followed by an intense hands-on break-out section where you will work on the implements as Steve and I coach you and help you progress.
The afternoon will be led by world-renowned Dr. Serrano who will cover nutritional and health practices for ultimate physical strength and performance.
To purchase tickets to this one-of-a-kind workshop, please use the buttons below.
We will also be selling tickets for just Dr. Serrano’s talk, starting at 2 PM. Dr. Serrano is an expert on sports performance and will be talking about nutrition, soft tissue care & regeneration, supplementation, and other topics for athletes and coaches interested in high level training.
We will be training at the Slater Strength Field, where Steve does the majority of his training, located at 1700 W. FAIR AVE in LANCASTER OH 43130.
Because of the hands-on emphasis we have planned for this workshop, we can only accept 10 trainees for the training portion of the day. I know more than that have asked about something like this, but I don’t want to get too many people there and not get the full value out of the training.
Due to limited seating for Dr. Serrano’s presentation, we must limit this portion to 60 participants.
I look forward to working with you in Lancaster on July 17!
All the best,
P.S. Because of our schedules and the distance we live from one another, we are unsure when Steve and I will be able to do another Strongman Workshop. If you want the best instruction from two natural athletes who have competed in the Sport and worked with dozens of other athletes over the years, then make sure you sign up for this workshop TODAY!

I just wanted to say I think this is a great idea. I personally can not make it due to other obligations I have on that day. But I am glad someone out there is focusing some of their info/blogs/seminars on guys who are new to strongman (like me). I ordered your DVD and can’t wait to watch it. Good luck with the seminar. Maybe you will post some video on youtube of it.
