Lets step back and look at it from a different angle. What benefit would athletes get from training like a Strongman?
Training exactly like a Strongman would perhaps be ill-advised - simply because more time in-season would need to be spent practicing the actual sport. However, there are quite a few things such as sandbag work, grip work, loaded carries, etc that could be useful I think.
