Tom Stoltman Focused On Reps This Offseason

Tom, along with his bother Luke Stoltman, have become two of the top competitors in the world. When training for strongman, Tom Stoltman usually focuses on strength but he has been working on reps this offseason.

“I think what we are doing in the off-season is so much harder as well, we do a lot of rep stuff. I keep a lot of volume when I am doing pressing, because that is how I keep strength and build muscle.”

This varied from 220.5 pounds to 264.5 pounds by the final set. Stoltman continued to use this format over the course of the workout and it was taking a toll.


Tom Stoltman combined upright dumbbell rows with a standing dumbbell press to add a bit more tension. The final exercise was tricep extensions. Following the workout, Stoltman explained how he is focused on condoning his muscles.

“Obviously I am not conditioned to compete, but I am getting more conditioned with my shoulders and stuff. It’s a lot of high-rep stuff, a lot of lactic acid build-up.”
