  • First Q and A for Strongman section

    I recently talked to Pro Strongman Bran Dunn, he agreed to doing a little Q and A for us here via email or facebook. Now, I need to get some questions set up for him. Looking for a decent list of questions, stuff you guys may want to get answered from him, just pick his brain. Looking for anything, training related or not, either way is good. Let me know what you guys come up with.

    1. What does a typical days diet look like for you?
    2. What kind of injuries have you had throughout your career and what did you do to overcome them? Were they due to your own ignorance or just a freak occurrence?
    3. What is your background in weights and how did you get started into strongman?
    4. What would be your biggest piece of advice for someone getting started in strongman?

      Are you ever tempted to experiment in other strength sports like powerlifting or olympic lifting?

        What are some innovative ways to do strongman training when no equipment is available? (If there're such training methods ever employed)

            Were you always naturally strong, and how has your strength evolved over the years?

            Favourite and least favourite things about the sport?

                I had something in mind that went like this as well : what is it about strongman that draws you in? something that can't be found in powerlifting, olympic lifting, or bodybuilding?

                  How do you split up your training for events and gym days?

                    What do you usually look like? As in, what's your bodyfat range? And do you believe there's a need to get "fat" (for lack of a better term) to perform well in strongman events or is it just laziness on the athlete's part? If we compare Poundstone and Zavickas we can obviously see a pretty big difference in body composition but how do you think (if at all) this affects performance?

                    I also would like to make sure if my ab related question I posted in the other thread will be send to Dunn, but that's something Mark can answer.

                      Hit me with that ab question again bro, I can't find it. It will definitely get asked, all questions will be sent to him, it's up to him to answer them.

                        No problem, bro. I was wondering: What sort of things Dunn considers to be "essential" for big overhead numbers?

                        I hear a lot of people talk about having really strong abs to be able to get big weights above your head, so I also want to ask: What sort of ab exercises to you recommend?

                        Yeah a lot of questions from one guy but it's not often that you get the chance to Q&A a pro strongman.

                          Awesome, got it bro. I get off from work early tonight so I will be sending these to him tonight around midnight central time after I get home from my workout.
