Ready to see some serious conditioning work?

On 15th October, Rob Russell will be doing a Sledgehammer Challenge for Charity, attempting to strike a tyre (tire if you prefer) 1,000 times in 1 hr with a 25kg Hammer. To assist in fundraising he's written a superb 45 page ebook, which he'll be giving away in exchange for a minimum £2 donation. Beautiful.

Brilliant device. If your shoulders aren't quite as flexible as you'd like, grab The Rotater. Love it.

NB : For a complete list of everything we use and recommend, swing by the reviews area. And of course the Straight to the Bar Store. It's all in there.

NB : as a bonus, in addition to the ebook; donors will be entered into a raffle to win some fantastic strength-training equipment. And knowing Rob, it'll be top-quality stuff.

Vertical Tyre Sledgehammer Work. Another great idea via Ross Enamait. Securing a tyre (or tire, if you prefer) vertically for sledgehammer training.

Overhead Tire Run. Josh does an interesting exercise as part of the circuit above - an Overhead Tire Run (exactly as it sounds - lift a tyre over your head, and run). Nice one.


Of course, if you enjoyed these, I'd highly recommend grabbing the Strength & Fitness Newsletter. Delivered weekly, and absolutely free.

(there's also a Daily Update, if you're looking for an even larger dose of training-related goodness.)

NB : If you'd like to write a guest post for Straight to the Bar - I love hearing how other people are training - get in touch. If you've got a fitness competition or seminar coming up, add it to the calendar.

Look forward to hearing from you.
