This is what competition without ego is like. All friendly, stiff competition but full of respect for each other. Fantastic sportsmanship and you can see they’re learning from each other at the same time.

Love the energy of this video. As a trainer it's interesting to see the strongman lifting using lower body mechanics and Magnus using a lot of shoulder/scapula retraction the fact it's so evenly matched up to this point is incredible

I love the way Magnus goes back and forth with his guest. He is like a passive encourager haha, he isn't in your face and loud, but definitely gives motivation and credit to push you further and further. I also like he humble he is.

Amazing when two gentlemen can have the most polite and encouraging competition. Both of you are excellent in your own areas and it is clear that you both walked away with new shared insight, and it genuinely looked like you enjoyed each other's company while going through these exercises. I applaud you both.

Magnus' grip strength is crazy for his size. Great showcase of how training specificity plays into things.
JumboJ Dia atrás
@Go muscle size - a 200 lb muscular person on average will have higher grip strength than a flabby 200 lb person. Those two guys are outliers in the population. Both top on their sport

Size? Grip strength has nothing to do with a person's weight. Overweight or underweight people usually have less grip strength than normal ones.

The thing I like the most is how encouraging they are to each other. That is the sign of true sportsmen who don't truly compete against each other as much as challenge themselves. I have great respect for these two.
Ekonnahn 2 dias atrás
@Puro That's not necessarily true. You attempt something and that sets a benchmark. Now you work to raise your benchmark. You are therefore challenging yourself to do better than before. There are many factors you can target, be it quantity, duration, speed, etc. You don't have to push anyone else to push yourself.

To challenge yourself you have to challenge others so they improve, otherwise you have nothing to try to beat.

After a certain point with strength sports you're really just competing against yourself and a handful of other weirdos who have put in years and years of very specific training. At that point it's hard not to be coming from a place of mutual respect. Nice to see that coming out in this

I love the humility of two truly competitive people on display here. You can tell that you both work very hard on your abilities and don't take anything for granted. When I was young my father had a logging business selling firewood. I was about 16 when he shut the business down, but my brother was in that sweet spot of youth (late teens/early twenties) when we all did that kind of work. His hands were so powerful from picking up hardwood pieces one handed and throwing them (two at a time from the ends with barely the fingertips gripping the edges) that even though he has relatively small hands, he could palm a regulation basketball fully inflated by crushing it with his fingertips. I bet he would have done well on these tests back then, especially the 3rd one. That tool is shaped very much like a piece of split firewood. Your demonstration here shows how the limits of human strength are more universal than they seem. You both are strong in very different ways but your hand strength is very close because the two types of exercises you regularly do require it. Very cool.

Magnus is 5'9" and the Norwegian Hulk looks to be about the same height (perhaps even a bit shorter) so despite being nearly 400 lb and very strong, as far as strongmen go he's likely got some pretty small hands. Other huge strongmen who are much taller like Thor (6'9"), Brian Shaw (6'8") and Mark Felix (6'5") have incredible grip strength in part due to their massive hands.

@Cosmic Billy Just a quick google could have shown you that I'm right, did you even bother to check before attempting to call me out for something easily fact-checkable? If you're talking RAW bench, the record is 782lbs, which is still significantly more than the guy in the video. But if you're including the separate category of bench shirt press records (press shirts help with safety and balance, protecting lifters shoulders to help safely focus upward muscle force)), then the current world record is 599kg, or 1320lbs by Jimmy Kolb.

@Daniel Kaschel By that I mean stronger than your average guy that works out and lifts a lot. But from my experience just about every decent sized gym in a medium sized town has a guy that can lift that much or more. Hell some US high schools have guys that lift more.

@KhaReckless I done some power lifting and lift normal, but can say i barely train my grip to hold the primary weight. You either train the large muscles isolated and pick a few smaller ones with it as an added bonus. Or if you go power-lifting the aim is to use every muscle in your body to get shit done. The amount of weight i can hold with my grip significantly decreases if it solley hang from my fingers (grip)

Loved seeing this and the genuine comradery and support! While I've never competed in any strength competition's or anything like that and I've never been a gym guy I've just always had very strong hands/fingers which I've started to lose due to Multiple Sclerosis. Despite the extreme unpredictability of my strength from day to day or even moment to moment I think maybe I'll look into a gym membership where I can work on it in a more controlled manner. While most likely not the actual intention of this video, Thank you for the inspiration!

As a submission grappler, I have rolled with all kinds of body types, and various configurations of strength and athleticism. But by far, the person with the strongest grip and arms I ever encountered was a 165 pound rock climber. It was insane how easily he could manipulate other people’s limbs, almost as though he had hydraulics in his own

What I really like about this is the strong man has an opportunity to be genuinely surprised by someone's strength. It's not often this guy pulls a really tough deadlift and sees someone come up and lift the same weight. Pretty cool to watch his reactions to Magnus lifting weights he's also struggling with.

@Infinity It is, and thank you. For me, a survivor of an off road motorcycle accident at the age of 21 which left me a paraplegic with a spinal cord injury. Both sons know the risk.Most of their role models as kids were world class wheelchair basketball or racing champions. My wife and I trust our younger son, the climber, to make the correct choices on the rocks. Over my 45 year career working in rehabilitation. I have seen way too many paras and quads who were hurt climbing, diving in water or in MVC accidents. Thank goodness for the Boy Scouts. Both our sons embraced hiking and living and experiencing the outdoors at an early age and they are more comfortable sleeping under the stars than in a bed. They are both safety conscious and they have taken the testosterone aspect out of their outdoor activities. All the best to you this Spring when you are able to get back out on the trails. Be safe and stay at it as long as you can. In my opinion, walking is overrated(smile,) but it sure makes life easier. Be safe.

@martymorse2 That's really exciting to hear. I'm more of a trekker/hiker myself, and not that good at climbing. But I watch videos like this to awe at the very dynamic approach at climbing, which is different than almost any other sport. Some stuff looks like straight up Spiderman shit. It's really impressive to see.

@Infinity Excellent feedback Infinity. Thanks. Our youngest son is a climber. He is currently living and working at Yosemite. He is in heaven out there with the hiking and climbing. I doubt he could tell you his pr's in any of the lifts he does other than with his climbing and bouldering specific work. Love the problem solving aspect of rock climbing. It is so much about imagery and adapting. It will prepare him in a metaphorical way for the. rest of his life.

Pretty sure he can tell his personal record in his field, that is climbing. I don't think climbers focus that much on the numbers of their grip strength, but they for sure wouls remember how high they climbed, or what their hardest course was.

I always had a tiny suspicion that strongmen were strong, so, to me, it was more amazing to see how strong a rock climber can be in the hands. While these specific exercises were designed for rock climbers, a strongman has to actually hang on to the insanely heavy things he's lifting, so besting a top level strongman is very impressive. The Norwegian Hulk climbing? Well... It might be fun, seeing a mountain tip over. Still, better to leave them standing, I think. He'd definitely do better at climbing, than you would in a strongman contest, though - even with the mountain collapsing over him. No offense.

@Wendy Here I'm Dutch and lived in the Netherlands for 34 years and moved to Norway 4 years ago and still living there. It's harder to get connected with Norwegians than in most other countries. It's way easier to start a conversation with a unknown person in the Netherlands. Here in Norway people keep to themselves. I know another Dutch guy who moved from Oslo to a small town near Lillehammer. He has 4 neighbours around him and they never ever came by to have a chat with him. You really need to work hard on making new friends in Norway, and still, even working activly on it, it takes a looot of time. People here really mind their own business and they think that they are harassing people if they start a conversation. For the norwegians: ikke tro at du er til bry for noen hvis du begynner en samtale med en fremmende.

@DeSpace Man I agree. That’s true of anything, really. It’s not even the money if you think about. It’s branding. In sports, food, art, etc, once something/someone becomes a “brand” it begins to lose some or all of its originality and becomes an insincere calculated marketing machine to one degree or another. I don’t want to see sports stars selling me cheeseburgers or, more tragically, talented musicians falling into the cycle of being spoon fed pop songs written by someone else and composed at a computer.

It's humble because there isn't big money in it at the moment, when sports become a million dollar pay check it start to become nasty & ugly. That's the reason I do sports for fun & for enjoyment once you go into tournament or pro & lost of money involved it's no longer enjoyable for me. I had player & coaches come up to me & say why don't you come & play in the pro division with us your skills are very high, I said nah then it become a job & isn't fun anymore I'm not interested in a trophy or prize money at the end of the day that's not what sports means to me.

Very interesting. The comment about having more muscle mass but not being able to use it in something this specific was correct, I think. Rock climbing is very dependent on grip strength strong man yes but not like rock climbing. Also, being able to do it over and over vs one time powerlifting type stuff is important. Great competition.

I feel like hulk could do better if he had a week or so to practice. You got to remember rock climber does this more regular so he has better technique and muscle coordination. Hulk is learning this and it takes a bit to get your muscle coordination and technique down. Everyone experience this issue with new lift when starting it's kinda hard at certain weight but you find you quickly progress because you are learning technique and your muscle are working more properly to assist you to max out at your potential in the moment.

@nillyeg The broken phalanges and metatarsals. That much weight would just snap the bones and crush the joints. I think the climber would suffer more from the permanent loss of mobility, although the strongman would be permanently lopsided in his lifting. The pain would eventually heal (with surgery and physio) but the damage would be lasting.

@P imagine if it fell on his foot. The pain x.x

I was lying in bed watching this wanting to be stronger so decided to do two pushups for every successful rep that either of you did. Let me tell you, I'm exhausted. This was the only time I let an ad play all the way through just for a rest.

Each one is an expert on their field and mad respect for what they have achieved and the sportsmanship demonstrated. When it comes to grip strength however, my money goes to climbers, always. When it comes to total body strength, that's different story.

This is so wholesome. Both these men are clearly incredibly impressive athletes, just with different specialties. And they are both so kind and encouraging. It just makes you feel good watching it.

Love how they are so humble and how the big guy is the furthest thing away from a "meathead".

Just wanted to say how humble and nice this exchange was. Scandinavia gym culture from the outside seems a lot for communal and positive than here in the UK.

I'd love to see Norwegian Hulk do rock climbing. Heck, a series of him going out and trying a bunch of new stuff would honestly be pretty great.

He would have heart attack after a few minutes😅 And honestly not enough strength in fingers anymore when too much unnatural mass. A gorilla weighing that much can climb to trees, but a strongman like that would be just unintentional comedy and actually not even fun to watch.

I really enjoyed this! There is a rock climbing place close to me. I always think about going there more often. Your videos are going to change my "think" to "do"!

You can see the difference where the muscle use differs between the two. I bet the big man will change up his rotation a bit and gratz to the rock climber, super impressive. Both are very impressive and humble. This is the friendly type of competition people love to see. Big mans numbers on lifting are just ridiculous.

The Norwegian Hulk is one of those people that one instantly likes. His performance in the last challenge was AMAZING!!! I used to be a rock climber and I know how tough that challenge is. For him to be able to nearly match you on that one was inspiring. Great content!!!

@Ricardo Arjona Gaming as someone who was scaffolding i agree, but your body gets use to it so you don’t continue building muscles past a point at a job appearance wise lol

​@J K i worked at a warehouse for 6 months no fancy machinery all the work was done by hand, at that time i felt stronger than i feel now despite currently hitting the gym 3 times a week. i guess you cant compare a two hour workout to lifting and moving heavy things all day every day...
