Strongman Pro

What is ARNOLD STRONGMAN PRO LEAGUE?

Arnold Strongman Pro League is a contest of strength with the presence of the greatest athletes of the Strongman world, in a circuit all continents participating in the Arnold Sports Festival.

Known as the competition of the "strongest men in the world", is a sport in which competitors seek to demonstrate their strength in a series of tests and different ways.
Strongman is one of the most complete sports, in which is used strength, endurance,
speed and the ability to lift and haul different objects.
It usually takes place in public places such as beaches, enclosed streets, squares or wide environments and with an easy access to the population. For this reason and by using familiar efforts (pushing, throwing or lifting objects) the Strongman has been one of the most popular sports in the world.

Bryan Benzel

USA

Height 188 cm ; Weight 143 kg

Bryan Benzel played college football at the University of Nebraska before taking up strongman after a friend introduced him in his mid-twenties.

Benzel’s favourite event is the Atlas stones. “It’s a mixture of how iconic it is and because it’s typically been a strong event for me.” Although after dropping a 181kg stone on his foot earlier in his career – nearly losing it to the resulting infection – he’s got first-hand (maybe that should be first-foot?) experience of how real the stakes in strongman can be.

Benzel’s proudest strongman moment to date is placing 2nd in the 2015 Arnold Amateur World Championships. Ever the fierce competitor, it’s also his biggest disappointment as he felt he could have taken first.


Dimitar Savatinov

Bulgaria

Height 178 cm; Weight 150 kg

Dimitar was a wrestler in high school and continued to wrestle during his time in the Bulgarian army which he joined when he was 18. After leaving the army, Dimitar went on to work at nightclubs across Bulgaria, and it was on the door that he met a group of circus acrobats who asked him to join their act. Travelling with the Bulgarian Ringling Brothers circus, he came to the USA. Although life on the road with the circus made regular weight training difficult, Dimitar did what he could and in 2009 was invited by some local powerlifters to go with them to a powerlifting contest. It was this meeting, he explains, which inspired him to look into strength training as a career and he would go on to enter his first strongman contest in May of 2009 where he promptly won first place.

Dimitar didn’t leave the circus immediately, and continued to travel and tour with them when, fortuitously some might say, the Circus’ resident strongman was injured in 2012, Dimitar took over his act for the next six months. The act that he then performed included laying on broken glass while a board on his chest had twelve performers dancing on it, bending iron bars, holding and spinning seven girls on a human carousel, lifting a 200-pound kettle bell, and, finally, having a car drive over him.

It seemed like fate: in the past year alone he competed in six contests and won his place at the 2014 Arnold Classic by finishing second at Odd Haugen’s LA Fit Expo All American Strongman Challenge. Mitko now says that his focus is solely on Strength Training and we wish him luck – he is one athlete to watch in this upcoming season on competitions.

Polônia

Height 193 cm; Weight 142 kg

Poland’s Strongest Man in 2015 and 2016 made his debut at the World’s Strongest Man  in 2016. The full time strongman says he had two simple goals when he first started training: to be big and lift heavy weights. He’s stayed goal orientated but now his targets are a bit loftier.

Kieliszkowski’s trains for up to six hours a day, five days a week and says daily schedule isn’t filled with much other than training and resting. The only drawback with putting that much time into training is he says he’s getting to the point where he can hardly find clothes that fit him.
