TESTS OF STRENGTH

Strongman/woman is a spectacular sport in which athletes compete in a variety of events involving different aspects of fitness, strength, speed, power, physical and mental robustness. It differs from conventional weight lifting in that the event disciplines are extreme simulations of everyday manual labour activities (such as tyre flipping., farmers’ walk and the like) and so represent unique technical challenges and also a great draw for spectators who might not otherwise be interested in fitness.

Strongman/woman is one of the purest individual sports; no team mates or referees: just you and a seemingly inhuman challenge, such as deadlifting a family hatchback! That said, the community of strongman is like no other. All athletes, galvanised by a common desire to face the sheer physical and mental challenge, help and encourage their fellow strongmen in training, preparation and even in competition.

The 2017 edition of Emirates Strongest Woman & Emirates Strongest Man will have 3 categories of participants:

  • Women – Open weight category
  • Men – Under 90kg
  • Men – Open weight category

Each category will have 10-12 competitors, fighting it out over 6 individual tests of strength for the ultimate accolade of becoming Emirates Strongest Woman/Man. For those wishing to compete, please click on the ‘Register to Compete’ button below and complete the form.
