    Absolutely amazing, HUGE people in here. Pulling 45-ton trucks, lifting 350-pound boulders and stuff. Outrageous.

    the two events that I remember the most were the one where the contestant was strapped via harness to a semi tractor an they pulled it up a slight incline… and my favorite the “Atlas Spheres” they were like 1000lb granite balls the size of a beach ball, and the contestants had to lift 5 of them on to gradually taller stands. the first was a foot off the ground, the 5th was like 3-4ft… that takes muscle and stamina!!
