Bodybuilder Vs Strongman: Who Wins?

bodybuilder vs strongman

A battle of endurance, mindset and most notably strength.

The Athletes

  • Name: Johannes
  • Profession: Bodybuilder (& Strength coach)
  • Weight: 125 kg
  • Height: 188 cm
  • Age: 35
  • Name: Tetzel
  • Profession: Strongman
  • Weight: 105 kg
  • Height: 191 cm
  • Age: 191 cm

At face value, the competition seems to be in favor of Johannes as he does have a whopping 20 kgs on top of Tetzel. However, the exercises they will be performing are mostly (2/3) strongman exercises: 150kg Squats for 20 reps, Farmers hold 240kg for 30 secs and Log Lift of 80kg for 15 reps. So it does balance the competition out a little bit, but then again this is quite debatable.

Surpringsly, it came down to the last line to determine the winner.

So based on those facts, who do you think is going to win? The bodybuilder or the Strongman?
