Strongman: new and popular
Strongman is sport of the modern era. This type of trial of strength originated in the USA in the late 1980s and didn’t come to Europe until the 90s. It wasn’t the competition itself that was a novelty back then, but rather the display of physical strength in different competition disciplines, which placed demands on as many of the athletes’ muscle groups as possible. Strongman is much more about strength endurance and stamina rather than maximum muscle development, as is the case in bodybuilding. Aside from the IFSA Strongman Champions League and the WSM Super Series, the strongest of all strongmen also prove themselves at the Arnold Sports Festival.
StrongmanRun: over hill and dale
Since 2007, numerous StrongmanRuns have posed the question of the ‘Strongest Man’ in Germany: StrongmanRun Germany, Strongman Berlin, StrongmanRun 2015, Fisherman’s Friend StrongmanRun Nürburgring, Wacken and Ferropolis. These extreme obstacle courses are not only about speed and strength, but also skill when overcoming the obstacles. It’s hardly surprising that, aside from sophisticated Strongman exercise regimes and Strongman workouts, Strongman athletes also require special Strongman equipment! We will show you how the really strong strongmen train – here in Sport-Thieme’s online shop.
