    Strongman training or weight lifting?

    Hey guys, I'm 5'8 160 pounds. My frame is medium build, 6.50 is my frame size. Now I have a few questions to you all. One, will strongman training make me bigger in muscle size? or just stronger and more powerful? Because truly I love doing strongman sort of shit. But I'm just starting lifting again, (I used to lift because I play hockey) But I lost sight of my goals... etc.) So now I'm looking to bulk up. So, what works? Should I weight lift, or do strongman exercises, cause I'm sure a lot of you in here are far more experienced. Thanks

    Do whatever you enjoy. Eating is what's going to pack on the pounds. Strongmen lift weights and do the events. Take a look at Derek Poundstone, Brian Shaw or the Big Z. Fantastic physiques all built by weights, strongman and food.

    Do all three - Lift weights, Strongman Events, and eat FOOD!!!!!

    Oh ya, you also gotta be a Persistent bugger on all three too.

    Good Luck.
