Without a doubt, strongman and strength sports in general are tough. So tough, that most people fizzle out within a year of their first competition. The mental strain of a weight cut and event planning combined with the physical toll of training and competition leaves many broken, distraught, and completely content with never competing again.
However, for those remaining who are continuing to get stronger, working harder, and striving to be the best; what are their options? Do you do it for self-gratification, or to prove something to others? Do you have the goal of making it to the next level or just being a better you? All of that plays a role in how hard a person trains and competes.

A typical human trait is to think that things used to be better and that currently they are not as good as the “good ole days” this happens in Strongman as well but is it actually true and have competitions gotten softer or are you just now stronger?

Since the Inception of strongman there have been multiple different types of events. Some based on pure brute strength, while others have been based on the overall strength and conditioning of the athlete. With that being said, a lot of athletes will go balls-to-the-wall the entire contest, or at least think they are. This however, isn’t always the best option.
