Some of us go to the gym to become stronger. But there are those who are stronger than 99,99% of the world population. Every year, an official contest chose The World’s Strongest Man.
They have contests as vehicle pull, where they pull even planes across 30m. they squat with 450 kg, they lift 150 kg stones, etc. The man who won more times this competition is the polish Mariusz Pudzianowski, he won it 5 times. Lithuanina Zydrunas Savickas is often called “the strongest man nowadays”, he won the TWSM contest 4 times and he is the only powerlifter to have won every modern strongman competition. This two men are part of the top 10 strongest men ever.
2016 strongest man is the american Brian Shaw. but i think we need to start making some room to “the mountain” from Game of Thrones. He’s participating more and more at the TWSM competition, and he won the fridge-carry contest against Savickas.
Check out at the video below the TWSM trailer:
Most of our strongest men can bench-press and squat with more than 200 kg, and deadlift more than 400 kg. Sure they are not as strong as Hulk or Superman, but they are real. they are real life superhumans.
“Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.”
