hello my name is mohammed and i am a beginner at strongman i live in ksa and i dont have anystrongman gyms to go to and i looked everywhere for a program that i can use commercial gym equipment for i found 1 but its very confusing as there are no sets or reps listed. so i dont know what to do and i NEED your help i am in desperate needs of it

You honestly can't train for strongman with only commercial gym equipment. You can train for overall strength with any type of well designed program, and you will likely increase your deadlift and overhead this way, but in order to train for strongman you have to be able to use the different implements such as farmer's handles, yoke, atlas stones, log, and all the rest at least some of the time. If you want to do the best you can with what you have, then definitely work on overhead pressing, deadlifting, and clean and jerking. Besides that, you can push your car around a parking lot, find some heavy rocks or logs and carry them as far as you can, work on picking them up to your lap and then lifting them to your shoulder. This can be pretty dangerous though since you do not know the weights of them and often rocks and logs have sharp edges and corners that can cut you pretty severely. So for now I would train for overall strength and keep trying to find someone or somewhere that has strongman implements for you to learn them.

Or save up some money and buy your own,
