Below is a video of a Mongolian Log workout by Marc Switaj. In this video a short log is used. Some exercises such as swings can be performed with a shorter logs and these can't really be performed with long logs. If you don't have a gym or fancy equipment this low tech alternatives like this will give you a great workout and can get you in world class shape.
In video below you will see Khovskol performing exercise below:
- Push Ups
- Overhead squats
- Log Sit Ups
- Russian twists with log
- Backwards Log Throws.
I turned to log workouts mostly due to my Judo instructor. My instructor was a Sambo world champion, Wrestling Olympian and Judo multiple time national gold medalist. He used this training at his earlier years of his career to build up serious functional strength. I also saw many Eastern Europeans using logs for conditioning.
