I forgot whether you are in the UK. If so, I think Channel 5 do the strongman programs nowadays. In fact, I did see world's strongest man 2015 listed a few days ago. But like you say, it's traditionally a program that you watch around the Christmas holiday period.

To be honest, I haven't really watched it much since left the BBC. If I remember rightly, the chappie Magnuson was very busy in the world of strongman when I used to watch it, he's probably a veteran nowadays :-)

It's pretty amazing to see what these guys can left, they are like machines. I think it was probably about two years ago when I was watching the strongman contest on television from the early 1980s, in fact Geoff Capes was one of the contestants so that shows you how long ago it was. It's incredible to see how how much stronger the guys are nowadays than they were then. Don't get me wrong, they were strong back in the early day, but I reckon they are lifting nearly twice as much nowadays as they did back then.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

yes Im UK :)

I think today its alot better organized and they know alot more in the way of safe lifting and better exercise etc but yea I just find it amazing how these guys can do what they do and i like that it is fun but disciplined. I normally watch on 5 so hope they are showing again :)

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)

These guys are like machines. You see the one of the events the other day where he threw seven kettle bells over a metal bar that was the equivalent to the height of a double-decker bus? These kettle bells ranged from 50 up to 66 lbs. I have an amateur radio transceiver that weighs about 50 Pound, it takes about two people to lift it properly.
