    Best looking strongman ever?

    What do you guys think of this guy, J?n P?ll Sigmarsson.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJp_a...eature=related

    I don't think he ever got famous for bodybuilding but he was the strongest man in the world in the years 1984, 1986, 1988 and 1990. He competed as a bodybuilder in the same years, the shots in the video are from 1984 and 1988. Who says bodybuilders can't be strong too?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fm7g5...eature=related

    This guy was (and still is) the best and most inspiring athlete in Iceland.

    He died of a heart attack in 1993.

    Mariusz has the most powerful looking physique in my opinion.

    He plays/played rugby too which I thought was cool.
    Put on some sleeves, your 14 inch guns are intimidating me.

    I saw a clip on ESPN the other day with a bunch of bodybuilders including Lou and Franco competing against strongmen in the steel rebar bending competition. Lou won it with Franco in second. Lou looked great too.

    lol at saying Marius has the most powerful looking physique, this right here is the most powerful looking physique of all time.

    Kaz on the left. Can go on and on about his accomplishments strength wise and intensity wise. He was stronger than Marius is by quite a bithttp://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/dennis79.htm read this article for you strongman newbies.

    But if you're arguing about the most powerful looking competitors nowadays, Savickas wins

    Here's another one of Jon Pall Sigmarsson on the right:



    A few more:







    Btw Jon Pall beat Kazmaier in 1987 in the competition "strongest man of all time". He won 8 out of 10 events and put 6 new world records.

    Are you kidding me? Marius LOOKS far more powerful. Kazmaier had a lot of bodyfat and no muscle definition.

    lol his face, that is one man you do not want running towards you in a game of rugby. i agree with Mariusz, although Svend Karlssen also was a bodybuilder before turning strongman in his earlier days, he looked pretty impressive also.

    Katz and Jon Paul both looked great as far as their physiques are concerned, but Mariusz looks the best IMO, i dont think we have ever seen a strongman competing that looks so much like a top IFBB pro.

    lol, so you have to be thin to look powerful? I feel that guys with more bodyfat look more powerful since they are often more powerful. Look at all the top powerlifters and strongman events that don't involve agility/and quickness.

    You see how just looks can be deceptive? Guys who are ripped and huge look more powerful that guys who have a lot more BF and bloat, yet i dont see any Mr Olympia smashing powerlifting records, you look at the majority of top powerlifters, huge all over including midsection and they will crush any of the top pros lifts.

    They train primarily for strength and explosive power, many WSM competitors have recently been getting more conditioned, not because it makes them stronger, but because in this day and age it helps them be better all round strongmen, because a lot of events now require good cardiovascular conditioning, with incredible strength, conditioning is not so much of a concern for powerlifters, they only have to hit max lifts, not run around with a stupid amount of weight in a wacky event or pull a truck for a distance in record time.

    Wait a second....are you saying Marius is thin?

    Fair enough. I think IFBB pros LOOK more powerful, but they are not, obviously.

    Most ppl think this also, but those who are strongman or powerlifting athletes/fans know different.

    Jon Pall was such a great strongman b/c his strength was up there with the top end but he had SICK mobility for his time.

    mariusz is much leaner than kaz ever was, so he looks better IN TERMS OF BODYBUILDING STANDARDS.

    but kaz looked much more powerful, IMO. those traps and that back is just scary.

    exactly what I was saying, some posters here don't seem to understand that. By thin I mean "lower bodyfat". Kaz looks much more powerful, but some seem to think higher bodyfat % makes one look less powerful which imo is completely wrong.
