Strongman and Equipment

I am probably a million miles away from being strong enough (or tall or heavy enough) to do novice U105 strongman but I would like to give the training a try. I work for a welding and fabrication company, so I could get some equipment built, but i dont know any specification on how to build they. What else is there that i can get hold of?

Railway sleeper for a log press?
A light atlas stone for reps?

Any ideas or advice appreciated.

    Do not use a railway sleeper for log! use a pipe 8", 10" or 12" - your best bet would be 12"!

    Some plans on fitlike.net for car deadlift frame, log (as used at Jamie Barr's comps) and yoke, which we made up for our comps.

    Your not going to find a lot of plans.
    You need to research the basic standard dimensions and then design the rest yourself. It's what I and others have had to do in order to produce the equipment.

    On some events you won't even find standard sizes so you need to do the design work yourself based on what you want to achieve. It's the only way to do this and even the 'cad' drawings on the ifsa site are very basic and leave many design features and measurements out.

    If your looking for basic ideas then barrels and sandbags are the way to go, a simple sled is also another easy option.

    £140 is a great price, will bear your site in mind in the future.

    HAD, hey bro, I am back home for the summer, but I train in powerbase in term time, how about yourself?
