What are the benefits of training like a real bull, by moving HEAVY things on the daily? Not full body every day, just heavy carries to overload the legs and traps. Like yoke carries alternated with barbell/bag incline caries,weighted climbing and dragging/pushing my car(1800kg)

    You mean like a strong man? And everyday the whole body? How advanced are you in lifting/strength based sport?

  • Overload means building the muscle not by using it with a lot of reps but making it sore by slightly tearing it under high stress?

(Partial answer as proof/studies referenced missing)

Benefits of regular heavy training

  • Your body will take on musclemass fast if regeneration is timed right.

  • Your body will adapt after a while, see strongmen


  • Not suitable and unnecessary for beginners. That much stimulus is not needed but increases risk of injury and bad form

  • Bulls are heavy, their work must be seen compared to their mass and body type. You might lift wrong or too much

  • Bulls are ideally moving all day and their physical work is not just an hour in the gym but usually a way bigger amount of their time.

  • Heavy weights put a lot of stress on your joints even with proper form. This can result in health problems after a long time.

  • Being natural: Tearing or extreme soreness in muscles will result in them needing multiple days to recover. Doing so everyday with the same muscles will result in overtraining.

  • Using highly anabolic drugs: You would likely not be overtraining but as joints etc are lagging behind musclegrowth you would risk injury with heavy weights
