Witness Super-Human Powers at Strongman Events
Ever struggle that last few yards carrying the shopping bags from the car boot to the front door? How about lifting the couch so your mum can clean underneath? If this sounds familiar, a little comparative study might help you through the next venture. Strongman Events are a sure way to do just that, and tickets are available to buy and sell through StubHub now!
From the Local Circus to the National Arena
In the 19th century, the strongman was typically found in the circus. An act of extraordinary strength was something audiences would marvel at before moving on to see the following act. As strength sports such as weightlifting were developed, strongman eventually became its own category within the athletic sphere. Initially, competitors would perform feats of strength involving exercises like the bent press, where a large weight is brought from shoulder height to overhead with one arm in a burst of power using the muscles of the entire body. Steel bending and chain breaking were also often seen until the events became more eclectic towards the latter end of the 20th century and the popularity of the spectacle grew. Nevertheless, these muscular feats were still pretty impressive back in the day, which only makes the modern-day sport even more awe-inspiring when you realise the incredible accomplishments the human body is capable of. Strongman Events showcase it all in a variety of formats, disciplines and categories, where it's up to you to choose how you want to relish the experience. Tickets are available now to buy and sell via StubHub, it's that easy!
Taking Strength to New Realms
The more diverse range of exercises found in recent times include Loading, where athletes must somehow find a vice-like grip on an atlas stone (a large, smooth, spherical piece of rock) to lift it from the floor to a designated platform; The Farmers Walk is another classic. Imagine those shopping bags are 160 kg dense metal blocks and you'll soon get the idea! Towing eighteen-wheel trucks is also a common challenge, albeit a completely baffling achievement. Strongman Events such as the Arnold Strongman Classic and the Giants Live circuit are all fantastic ways to experience the strongman world and its athletes. Notable strongmen to look out for are England's Eddie Hall, who became the only man to deadlift 500 kg in 2016, and Icelandic giant and Game of Thrones star Hafthor Julius Bjornsson, who won the coveted World's Strongest Man title for the first time in 2018. It's truly something else to see these giants in real life and realise just how strong they actually are! The time is now to buy and sell your tickets for Strongman Events via StubHub.
