Training The Worlds Strongest Man With Tom Randall & Dan Hipkiss

Today’s guest is Dan Hipkiss, the coach to ‘The Stoltman Brothers‘, who have held multiple World’s Strongest Man titles, a few world records and multiple international competition podiums. Dan also coaches others in the sports of powerlifting, CrossFit and Olympic weightlifting, giving him a varied background in performance training.

Seeing that Dan also rock climbs, and understands the fundamentals of the sport, host Tom Randall invited him on to pick his brain in the hopes of learning new perspectives on training for climbing.

The main topics are:

  • Frequency and volume of strength training
  • Training weaknesses and de-prioritising strengths
  • Injury prevention for strength athletes
  • Using deload cycles as a tool for getting stronger
