Related: 11 Feats of Strength Every Lifter Should Accomplish The typical lifter can expect to build the following amount of muscle mass per year: Year 1 16 pounds; Year 2 8 pounds; Year 3 4 pounds; Year 4 2 pounds; Year 5 1 pound. Strength manifests itself in a number of ways, whether it be in strongman competitions, or on the athletic field. It’s not just squats and deadlifts, but pulls, leaps and throws of insane magnitude that make us pause and take notice. Check out the 11 most impressive feats of strength performed by some of the most mighty men. Just lift an airplane, climb a building, or run around the block 5,649 times.

It’s time for you to transcend. in these runners’ day-to-day training, where the real feats lie. American trail racer Anton Krupicka, for one example, ran up 8,144-foot Green Mountain from his nearby hometown of Boulder, Colorado, an incredible 296 times in 2010. What feats of strength should we be able to perform to impress our friends with our physical prowess? Below you will find my top 5 list for physical feats of strength and endurance every extremist should learn to do.

Some may take a few months to learn how to do it but will definitely impress your friends and show off how extreme you are. Feats of Strength: How to Train and Perform Like an Oldtime Strongman. (Right now you can get it for a cheap price, but this is only for a couple more days.) So today I wanted to dive into the reasons why you should train to do feats of strength. But let’s be honest here. If you have no interest in this subject these will not change your mind.

(UA: Feats for Races) Prerequisite: Halfling Whenever an ally you can see within 30 feet of you rolls a 1 on the d20 for an attack roll, an ability check, or a saving throw, you can use your reaction to let the ally reroll the die. The ally must use the new roll. Critter Friend (UA: Feats.

He did not want anyone else too suffer the same fate, so he carved a through cut that was 110 meters long, 7.6 meters deep in places and 9.1 meters wide to form a road through the mountain. He worked every day and night for 22 years to do this and reduced the distance between the Atri and Wazirganj areas of the Gaya district from 75 km to 1 km. However his colourful legacy and breathtaking displays of strength live on. He was capable of feats that no-one else could accomplish, being the only man in history to bent press 370lbs.

He also snatched 200lbs with one arm, military pressed 252lbs, and could “two hands anyhow” 448lbs. If you watched the Olympics this year, you saw many feats of impressive athleticism and strength. If you didn’t watch them, it’s very unfortunate that you were trapped at the bottom of the sea for two weeks. However, most of the so-called feats of strength featured in the Olympics actually pale in comparison to those on the following list. Note: All of the weights listed are in pounds, because.

To give an idea of his strength, the Thing once struggled to lift with two hands one of Simon’s ginormous training dumbbells, where as Wonder Man not only easily lifted it with one hand, but chucked the weight, along with Thing, through a wall. Suffice to say, over the years Wonder Man has proven he can more than hold his own against some of.

  • Jesus Christ… I can only do 1x my body weight on DL and squat. Just a little over.5x on bench and shit. I’m pathetic I guess.

    I can’t even imagine getting to 300# bench. Seems impossible to get to even my body weight

  • Well body weight standards do have one useful application: mobility. Your squat/body weight is basically your vertical acceleration, and translates to jump height. Bench/BW is a good measure of how easily you can do a pushup etc etc.

  • The only strength ratio I’m curious about is row vs bench. Brian Alshrue suggested having your row and bench be the same which is WAY different for me. Curious your thoughts

  • haha my wrestling coach’s version was, “SHOOT FOR THE STARS!! THEN LAND ON THE MOON!!! yOU MIGHT NOT BE IN THE STARS BUT GUESS WAHTT??? YOuRe ON tHE FUckING mOoN!!

  • Every auto mechanic ought to be able to bench press the vehicle they’re working on. That way, they can save money on those pesky jack stands!

  • 4:15 I love this, I am 6’7 and I alway get people who try to put me down because they can bench more than me and weigh less. Moving 230 pounds with a 6’9 wingspan is a lot harder than moving 230 pounds with a 5’9 wing span ��

  • If you think in terms of “guidelines” rather than “standards,” it’s clearly useful to have some idea of where you stand compared to other people. It’s just one more way of assessing your progress. A breakdown of beginner, intermediate etc “standards” by body weight is obviously going to be arbitrary, but it can help you to set goals and motivate yourself.

  • It’s a great point. I consider myself an advanced lifter although I only squat 220 lb. After back surgery and not understanding my body I had to step back to reevaulate what working out was; not to me, but, the motor function of tearing muscle.

  • I’m 16 and can squat 205 for 4 reps at 140 pound body weight I can also bench 165 for 2 reps. Am I a beginner or intermediate? The video says I’m a beginner but he could also be talking about adult standards.

  • Just got under a bar for the first time a few months ago at 29 years old. Lots of injuries and no athletic history. I don’t have strength standards, as long as i dont further injure myself then i am happy with my lift.

  • The piss poor form some people use while testing strength standards makes them pretty useless. The guy squatting 100kgs for 5 with perfect form, full rom and a good pause at the bottom is way more impressive than the guy half repping 150kgs.

  • Great video!
    8:20 Bodyweight to strength ratio has a lot of importance in the track/sprint cycling world where short sustained strength/weight matters as it contributes to measurable acceleration and speed; rather than an arbitrary score.

  • I don’t doubt it that people compare themselves too much to others, but I do think that online strength standards can be a helpful tool in some cases.

    I recently transitioned my leg days from home to the gym. I’m new to barbell training so I had no clue about what is a lot and what isn’t in most exercises. After two weeks my rough 1RM estimation for both my squat and DL is 100kg, 290kg for leg press and 160kg for hip thrust. By comparing the strength standards of these exercises, I can conclude that I’m probably holding back quite a bit more than I thought in squats and deadlifts, probably due to lack of confidence below the bar or lower back weakness. Strength standards of back extensions (20 reps with a 20kg kettlebell) hints that my lower back might not be that weak. If another lower back exercise confirms that, I can assume that what’s holding me back with squats and deadlifts is probably mostly mental or a matter of skill. This way online strength standards can help me make more educated decisions with my programming.

  • This video is 1000% worth it just for the DIY deadlift-jack tip alone. Been looking for a solution like that forever. Rest of the vid rocked too.

  • But is there anything more fun than out lifting an ego of similar size with all name brand apparel and popcorn muscles? I’m a 45 year old tow truck driver that goes to the gym. Deceptively strong

  • Actually, for paramedics, nurses, elderly care workers…. strenght standards would be paramount to their daily practice and well being on retirement. Also, deadlifting is inherently simpler than squat from psychological point of view. There’s world of difference between simply not locking / lifting excessive weight, at most dropping it on the floor and putting it on ones back… between oneself and floor.

  • As a 15 year old athlete I can tell you I can barely squat 125 but I can deadlift 250 no problem and I’ve seen kids who can squat 250 and can barely deadlift l25 ratios mean nothing

  • As far as work goesmost trades will make sure you can carry something around 50lbs for something around 20 feet… I was always able to do them as a teenager

  • Weight lifting shoes fixed my knee issues.
    I got a nice pair fitted, to compensate for the difference in my legs length.

    Used to have knee pain on my shorter side whenever I squatted.

  • What about Andre the giant? He’s done some crazy shit. Even able to drink gallons of beer in a single sitting. Beer goes hand in hand with manliness usually. Also lots of other crazy shit. Andre was cray cray

  • 6:19 [stares at DIY Deadlift Jack]
    9:28 [still thinking about DIY Deadlift Jack]
    Four Days Later: “Why TF have I never thought of that?!”

  • Be strong enough to carry yourself and one more human of a similar size to you for a meaningful distance in case of an emergency.

    Be strong enough to lift and carry your wife ir girlfriend from several different positions and scenarios, in case of an emergency.

    Be strong enough to pick up your kids and carry them to safety.

  • Numbers and years don’t matter. Beginners make progress on an exercise from workout to workout. Intermediates from week to week. And Advanced trainees from month to month.

  • There is some real world benefit to strength standards, namely preventing injury. If your chest is way stronger than than your back, the odds of you having bad posture is increased as your shoulders round forward arching your back, etc…

    Secondly, they can be an indicator of using bad form in an exercise. I.e. if you are squatting but notice that your quads are way stronger than your glutes, you are probably not using good form. Doing shoulder raises but find that your traps are growing and not your shoulders, you are probably using bad form.

    Lastly, as mentioned in the video, certain strength standards will be different based on how you train. However, not meeting certain “standards” could be an indicator that you should change how you train. For example, your triceps should be stronger than your biceps. If you can curl 40 pounds but can only handle 20 on a tricep extension, maybe you won’t get injured from that and you could still be doing exercised correctly, but you might want to at least think about changing your workout habits.

    In general, I agree with things he mentioned in the video and people put too much emphasis on reaching arbitrary specifics and some values that are just meaningless. However, there is some value to strength standards and it simply isn’t healthy to get too out of balance.

  • How do I find imbalances in my strength though. I only have a certain amount of time time to lift and I want to work on my weaknesses.

  • Strength/speed (it’s awful in the running community sometimes also) standards are toxic in that they discourage others from starting their fitness journeythanks for video!!!!

  • I just recently came across you channel and this video. I am really I really like the subject discussed here. I’m a master trainer and strength and conditioning coach as well as fighter. Both my students/fighters always ask me the same question and I pretty much tell them the same answer in which you provided here. Also do my squat was higher that me deadlift for a while. Now that are the same. Keep up all the good content.

  • 1. I thought your gained a bit of ass with the colour of the chair blending in with your shorts!

    2. I gained 100kg to my squat, bench & deadlift by loading up the weights… Whether I actually completed those is an entirely different story…

  • I give all these guys props for such feats. But those Oly lifts are insane! In order to do such lifts, ones gotta be beyond strong. Technique is part of it but the animal has to come out to pull these lifts off haha

  • i have a really stupid question, but why is everything in Kg instead of pounds? i know it says pounds underneath, but i just wanted to know why Kg.

  • Form usually does matter, but when going for a world record attempt like many of these are, it doesn’t.

    You must get the weight up any possible way.

  • Kurlovich, Pisarenko, & Taranenko. Not necessarily in that order but in my opinion all still definitively above Rezazadeh…I specifically said “4th best” just to mess with him a bit – I’m not as high on Rezazadeh as most people.

  • HYPED!! So because I am coming back to heavy training after a “layoff” (due to injury) I think the tips in this video will apply to most people who are unable to train normally due to the pandemic. Hopefully you guys will find it helpful for when we’re all back in the gym as normal. I’m hoping sooner than later! I put the summary and tips at the end of the video by the way. Peace!

  • Really impressive damn. I think you’re underestimating your PRs though. I can get 405 x 6 and 315 x 5 respectively for squat and bench and hit 505 and 375 for max reps (good form etc). I think you could do equal or more likely better

  • Really cool video impressive numbers for your body weight. I may be drinking Haterade by saying this, but sumo deadlifts aren’t the real deal.

  • Very true. There is a rugby player in my home country, who at 19, was incline pressing around 220 pound dumbells. The guy was a monster, even though he did very little weightlifting before playing professional rugby. I should add he was already close to 6 foot 7, and weighed close to 270 pounds.

  • Literally muscle memory and being fucking huge for anyone that doesn’t know Jeff used to power lift and was stronger than he currently is at a younger age he just trains now for the specific training effect of strength.

  • I closed my eyes for a second and I could swear this is Ben Shapiro talking!!! ������ had no idea he is this jacked! ���� good by Shapiro! ����‍♀️

  • The skit in the beginning was hilarious while also genuinely freaky in a way, like mimicking a schizophrenia simulator. You were portraying something that although was mainly intended to be funny also accomplished having some sort of scary movie vibes.

  • 9:38, im a disabled veteran, for 2 years i lived inn depression and a vicitimized lifestyle. What he said is 100% correct, you got to shift that menntal attitude. My diet and phyqise went to shit, went from 200lbs to 140 (stomach ulcers contributed to weight loss) almost 5 months ago i got back into a 5-6 day routune and worked from the ground back up. Back at 163lbs now. annd Feelings great despite fracturing my L3-S1 years ago.

  • I lost over a hundred twenty pounds a body fat gain muscle mass and got stronger at same time it is definitely possible to get stronger more muscle mass and lose weight it’s also about nutrition eating the right type of foods will get great result. I don’t believe in diets I believe in lifestyle and nutrition is part of the lifestyle one of the things that help stop drinking soda cut out fast food and junk food cook your own meals I do three meals a day breakfast lunch and dinner, it actually help me lose weight because I used to eat one or two meals and my body would go into starvation mode causing the body store fat this is a reason I do three meals a day along with a good weight training program what certain days I do cardio other days I do a High interval training program that helped increase my metabolism and every morning with 8 oz of hot water 2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar a teaspoon of honey and a squirt of lemon juice in the hot water really helped me a lot, I learned a lot from these videos as well

  • “getting into a man’s was that could punch you so hard it could altar your dna” I have been laughing for 5 minutes with no signs of stopping

  • Never mind the videos… I’m STILL enjoying the name: “SLAPPED HAM!” Great channel name. I’ve gotta go tell my girlfriend, miss SARAH BELLE PALSY!

  • Oh, there SHOULD be strength standards for occupations, but HR departments will consider that sexist and not inclusive to women so they just get rid of the standards altogether and all the heavy work will fall on the few guys who do keep themselves in good shape. Since you have a few guys doing the work of many, they get injured and broken down more and have to leave the occupation to take low paying jobs at Home Depot while the “others” are able to put in a full career at their high paying job to essentially drive the pickup truck around without any real physical work ever being done and no real physical injuries as a result. Think I’m bullsh!tting you; ask a male firefighter what they really think of quota hires….

  • U guys missed one man his name is Marijan Matijevic resarch that man and u will see why he was called the strongest man in the world

  • The thing is, men’s testosterone levels in 2013 ranged from 270 – 1070 ng/dL. 100 years ago men’s testosterone levels were recorded to be between 800-2000 ng/dL!

  • so a long time ago I used to be a subscriber for this channel back when this had 20,000 subs, and oh man you have grown this channel sky high. its no wonder because of your beautiful voice ( ͡o ͜ʖ ͡o)

    but really congrats man xP

  • Toptens over slapped ham. Slapped hams voice and personality sounds childish. He makes to many dumb jokes and puns as he goes on. Sticking to Simon.

  • I watched both videos and you guys made a great team. Maybe there could be more videos in the future because Im sure alot of people would watch.

  • For more information about the Great Antonio, he was a french canadian homeless man, My mom once saw him across the street from her and she described it as “I could smell him from very far away”. They have a memorial statue of him in Quebec erected after his death.

  • I’ve played bball barefoot outside…. don’t do it. The sudden movements rip your feet apart, unless you’re tough. Then you just get horrible blisters, which pop while you play

  • The things I love about Marine Thrall: He’s no nonsense and straight to the point. He also speaks thorough and plainly. In other words, he speaks as a real man should speak.

  • damn and here i was thinking that Alan dude plays the best shit in his gym….only metal plays at my gym but I’m the only member haha 😉 great video thank you for posting it!

  • Dude, thank you for the tip number 10. I can’t even remember how many times I’ve become discouraged and stopped working out because I thought my technique was super poor or that there was a better ultimate exercise that I should be doing instead. It’s a toxic mentality and I am happy I’ve come across this video!

  • I worry too much about what other people think so i set my goals as follows
    Bench 225 for reps ill buy wrist wraps
    Squat 315 for reps ill buy belt
    Deadlift 495 ill buy straps

  • on the diet, while I do need to lose weight, my ideal weight is penis visible and helecopterable… not 100% sure how much that is, especially if I put on muscle, but that aside, i’m putting off major diet changes till around 3 months of trying, if I cant stick with lifting, I don’t want to end up failing a diet and potentially screwing myself harder because of it.

  • wow, thanks for clearing up that breathing idiocy, my gym trainer told me to inhale on release and exhale on the lift, felt extremely unnatural

  • Barefoot squat is better if just for the reason ur calves will be more flexible, personally I squat naked in the woods in moonlight with a thousand pounds

  • You’re very mean to the Great Antonio. I knew him when he was in Montreal, Quebec. He had problems due to a very sad and rough life but was not «  insane ». Family and people tried to help him and journalists made a few interviews with him. He was very kind. You have no right to be cruel and harsh about him, he was a poor man and was appreciated in Montreal. Hope to never suffer the life he had, poor soul. I am disgusted by your heartless attitude.

  • If I had a top 10 of the videos I’ve watch about physical training over the years. This would definitely go right in at number one. Thanks for this free gold Mr Thrall

  • Yep wanted to build some strength/muscle before losing weight. It didn’t take more than a few months to realize that I should really be getting the flab off first, and let the rest come in due course.

  • About 2 and a half month ago I weight in at 60kg (Im 191cm tall) since then I’ve put on 10kg. My goal is around 83-85kg.
    Currently working out 3 days a week and eating 3500calories a day. And I have never set foot in a gym. All done with a couple of dumbells, a pull-up bar and other bw exercises. I was planing to start in a gym because I need more weights to keep up the progresive overload, but then this whole corona thing happened

  • 5:25 I deadlift in wrestling shoes or Chuck Taylors, its amazing how many people at the gym laugh at the chuck taylors when I put them on to lift.

  • I love the pup is so chill during the vid, except for the sled pulls hahaha. Great video, just the motivation I need to get back to lifting.

  • Guys, it’s not just about breathing. He’s saying you have to brace as well. Bracing is sort of like getting ready to get punched—your lats should be engaged. I breathe in a little, brace (lats engaged), and take in breath again. Then rip. I am a 49-year old woman and have an amazing trainer who’s teaching me a lot. But I swear, Alan’s form as he sets up, opening his chest before driving in and hinging up, is a thing of beauty.

  • This guy in this video is an idiot and definitely not an expert weightlifter. The beard does no favours, it makes you look like an old ass man which you most likely are. What a douche.

  • @TheDiamond123123 she’s Aneta Florczyk from Poland, we are just stronger than others probably because of a numerous number of wars we’ve been fought during history (btw sorry for grammar)
