At its core, strongman is a sport in which you pick up and/or hold a range of heavy objects. Unlike powerlifting, where the contested lifts are always the same, strongman is unpredictable both in what you'll be asked lift and how you lift it.
Sometimes, you might do heavy barbell lifts. Other times, you'll move objects or weights from place to place. In competitions, you can be scored by time, reps, maximum weight lifted, or even have to race another competitor head-to-head.
Strongman obviously involves strength, but also requires a great deal of athleticism, skill, and mental toughness.
