At one time, strongman referred to circus performers who exhibited feats of strength. Today, it refers to those who compete in modern strength competitions. Many of these involve displaying raw functional strength. Some events require lifting and moving unusually shaped objects. Other Events require pulling, pushing, or even throwing heavy objects. Strongman requires the ability to generate power and strength in unusual positions. It requires Strength, Conditioning, and Grip Strength. The equipment used in training is very unique. Equipment not found in a typical gym.
Growing as a sport, more and more people are getting into Strongman training. Recently the History channel featured a show called, “The Strongest Man in History”. The show featured some of the top strong men in the world trying to compete in different feats of strength. These were historical or even mythological feats from throughout History. If you have not seen the show, we definitely suggest catching up on past episodes! This show definitely created a buzz around strongman and it is only getting bigger!
