Iv recently started training for strongman (3-4 Weeks) i train roughly about 6 days a week with one of them days an events session, it hasnt been a smooth start to my attempt at strongman due to a few unforseen cicumstances but im almost a 100% so im getting back on track now.

Basically i would like to know any advice on cardio for strongman, what sort do people do, how long for, how many sessions per week etc

i try to aim for roughly 3 - 4 sessions a week for 20 - 30 minutes each half on a cross trainer and the other half on the stepper, i suffer from asthma so im trying to improve my lung strength also so i dont enter a comp then after my first event im sucking on a inhaler.

Any advice would be very much appreciated.

Duno about you're asthma and its limitations on the cardio but strongman events last a maximum of 2 minutes so short burst of high intensity with controlled rest times are best. and manipulating rest times for progression

also event based fitness is good (tyre flips for reps / long medleys etc)

I tend to suffer more in the summer with it especially when i slack on the inhaler but i dont suffer to much weight lifting but i noticed last week when i done my first events training it took its toll on my chest relatively quickly

This. I would keep it as sport specific as possible.
