Strongman Masters Nationals Events
No two strongman competitions are ever exactly the same. This is largely because series of events are never the same. Instead, they are cycled through a potential list of different lifting disciplines. Some Strongman athletes are better skilled at one event over the other. While the athletes are notified in advance what to prepare for – it can have a big impact on what to expect from each competitor.
Below are the events being held at the Strongman Masters Nationals:
Bigg Dogg Strongg Wheelbarrow Deadlift
Each competitor will have 60 seconds to deadlift as many reps as possible. Competitors will start standing on the mat and must follow the following rules: apply strap once the command is given, wear shoes until on the deadlift platform, and no use of suits or hooks, but chalk and straps are allowed.
A classic Strongman event, each competitor will be given 60 seconds to complete a 60 foot run (30’ down and back). The front must cross the line in the air and if it slides, there will be a two second penalty. There is only one drop allowed.
Ironmind Axle Clean & Press For Reps
Each competitor will have 60 seconds to clean and press as many reps as possible. Control over the log must be maintained at all times and the axle must not be dropped from over head. If it does, it will result in a deduction of a rep.
Beast Metals Yoke Carry
These competitors will have 60 seconds to complete a 60 foot run and the front of the yoke must cross the line in the air. If the yoke slides, it will result in a two second penalty and only one drop is allowed. The yoke carry is another staple event of Strongman and always a fun one to watch as it tests all aspects of the sport from strength, endurance, and mental will.
Bigg Dogg Strongg Wheelbarrow Race
Each competitor will have 60 seconds to pick up and carry the wheelbarrow a total distance of 40 feet. Competitors can start with their hands on the wheelbarrow. Similar to the yoke carry, this is not only a test of strength, but endurance and a will to drive this to the finish line.
