What is Strongman?

Strongman is a unique sport of highly varied events and training tools. Strongmen and women competitions will incorporate many disciplines such as truck pulls, lifting of logs, carrying sandbags, pressing kegs, car flipping and lifting, and much more. The sport is a true spectator favourite and it is by far one of the most entertaining and enjoyable training modalities we offer at Synergy.
