Ben 'Badger' Brunning - Wales Strongest Man

Here at Strom we have been proud supporters of the current Wales Strongest Man - Ben Brunning -  since he first started in the sport way back in 2012.
Badger currently trains at BIG DOGS strongman gym with Wales third strongest man Dale Peters and the reigning UK's strongest Master

Badger moved to Bala - North Wales ten years ago from Essex and is currently the top strongman in the country. 


Bens Current Supplement needs are provided by ADAPT NUTRITION 

He adds Carb powder to his INTRABCAA's for event training and occasionally will use the MASS ATTACK range to replace a meal.


Ben like most strongmen is relaxed with his diet - but as a rough guide. 

On Waking - 4 wholemeal toast - 6 whole eggs - large glass orange juice with 1 scoop ADAPT INTRA AMINOS .

Through the day - 3 meals consisting of around 250g lean meat - a small handful of nuts - a large pitta bread or a pack of rice.

Before Training - CNP Protein Flapjack

PostWorkout - 80g haribo - 1 serving whey 

Evening meal - large jacket potato - 10oz steak - mixed greens

Before Bed - toast and peanut butter


Ben Currently trains in a periodised style - moving from lighter weights in an explosive fashion progressing to heavier weights over a 4-6 week period before returning to the start of the program and repeating.
