The Arnold Strongman Classic is arguably the biggest Strongman contest of the year. It generally is the heaviest contest of the year but has started to become more dynamic with events such as the wheel of pain and the new trial by stones coming this year. While still being heavy with brutal static strength tests like the elephant bar deadlift & Cyr Dumbbell Challenge.
