Yoke, logs, stones, farmers walk handles, axles, circus dumbbell, sleds, Texas power bars, weightlifting bars, bumper plates, safety squat bar, one light tire, monolift, reverse hyper, heavy dumbbells, heavy KB’s.

Since this site is for people getting into strongman, this link might be worth including:
Most of the regulars train together late morning/early afternoon every Saturday.  This would be the perfect time to come for instruction or help from experienced strongman competitors, Olympic lifters, and powerlifters.
