What is Strongman you ask? Or if you want us to be politically correct, Strongperson, because there are just as many gals that take part in this sport as there are guys.
Strongman is a strength sport that is growing in popularity rapidly. Strongman events are generally made up of a combination of pushes, pulls, carries & holds, of implements like logs, stones, yokes, axel bars, designed to test the mindset, sheer strength & true grit of an athlete.
Strongman events can be scored in several ways, these can be on max weight, max distance, max time, max reps. The winner of a Competition is determined by points allocated for each event.
