Strongman Battles of Strength 2 DVD set.
Disc #1 135 minutes.
Disc #2 120 minutes.
Total Running Time: 255 minutes.
This packed DVD brings you the best Strongman action and major strength highlights from the 2007 Iron Man FitExpo and 2007 Arnold Sports Festival. Not only will you see some of the most exciting Strongman action ever recorded on DVD, we include audience participation strength events as well. I refer to the exciting strength and endurance events from FitExpo 2007 with audience participation on the Bench Press with bodyweight and the Curl Competition. All in one huge 2 DVD set, packed with more than 4 massive hours of entertaining "battles of strength".
After winning this event 5 years in a row, many experts feel that Savickas can rightly lay claim to the title of THE STRONGEST MAN WHO EVER LIVED. This is based on total body pure old fashioned brute strength. Not speed and strength but sheer "animal brute strength!"
In the Apollon's Wheels lift, 366 lbs, Savickas brought the weight to his shoulders 8 times and easily push pressed it to arms length each time.
In the Timber Lift, Andrus Murumets created a new record of carrying the 865 lbs timbers up the 36' incline ramp is an amazing 6.87 seconds.
In the Circus Dumbell lift (202 lbs with a 3" thick handle) Vasyl Virastyuk won this event with 6 repetitions in the time limit, being 3 each with his left and right hands.
If you can't stand the site of hands being shredded as skin is ripped off, or backs being strained, then this DVD set may not be for you!!
