The Strongest Man in History: Barrel Lift Challenge (Season 1) | History


I think it’s time to break a record what
do you say we’re in the UK taking on a
legendary British strong man called
Thomas Topham he lifted thirteen hundred
and thirty-six pounds of weight and
water and barrels in front of a huge
crowd
gonna be honest guys I’m seeing stars
after that but I’m bowing out with that
buyback buyback napkin the yoke lift is
not my strength I’d beat the Thomas
tough and legend so I left it there and
let those guys carry on in moments like
that everything just stops and it’s just
basically between you and the iron
guards at that point it’s the most
religious experience
it was hard but it was doable and meant
a lot to me to break this record but I
was done that was awesome man how
awesome you cheered louder for the beers
in the left I get it
we give you quite a bit more I think I
got a little in tank you want to up the
ante why don’t we go like 1500 how about
that Nick how are you feeling I mean we
did the Thomas top and left at thirteen
hundred and forty five I was happy to
leave it there and then Nick and Brian
went off on this absolutely stupid
little competition between the two of
them to see who could lift the most
weight
I can feel my hands I can feel
everything feel your feet come on your
head my upper back went yeah heard some
crops and I got to the top and I heard a
bunch of cracks and pops and I was done
I was worried very very badly but I was
willing to do whatever it took to win
that event you bowing out I’m out so
that means all you have to do is out
anything give it and you win so what’s
the lowest jump 27 27 pounds let’s do it
let’s add 27 pounds guys after all these
lifts even adding a small jump is a lot
let’s go
ladies and gentle winner Brian Shaw
this challenge was much more difficult
than Bening frying pans or carrying a
stupid watch tower so it’s fair to say
after my performance in the barrels that
I have not only won the week but I have
conquered England
even though Brian won my heart goes out
to knit vest more than anybody right now
seriously welcome Nick
it wasn’t about beating the weight or
the number that’s there it was about
pushing myself further than I ever had
before
but to be the best you have to be able
to beat the best and Brian’s the best
now I’m done
you
