Bursting triceps and burning forearms- the forward hold! Sometimes referred to as Thor's Hammer, this is one event not to be taken lightly!
The athletes hold the hammer out at arm’s length and the winner is the one that can hold it for the longest. Considering these behemoths think nothing of deadlifting hundreds of kilos and running with cars, a tiny 30kg should be nothing to them, right? After 30 seconds, that 30kg weight can seem like the heaviest object on earth! This is one event where blocking out the pain and putting mind over matter is the key to success.
