The Ultimate Guide to Qualifying for the World's Strongest Man Contest

Hello, strength enthusiasts! Have you ever dreamed of flexing your muscles on the World stage – specifically, competing at the World’s Strongest Man (WSM) contest?

Well, this is your comprehensive guide on how to transform that dream into reality. The journey to the WSM stage is one that many begin but few complete. Just the top 30 athletes from around the globe ever qualify to receive that golden ticket to the World’s Strongest Man. Along the road, you will endure hundreds, if not thousands, of hours of training to hone your body into a lifting machine. However, the final destination has clear and simple landmark contests that will indicate how close you are to becoming the Strength World’s next King of Kings. The premier destination has to be the Giants Live’s Arena contest tour.

The Main Road through Giants Live’s Arena Contest Tour

Giants Live isn’t just a professional strength competition; it also serves as the official qualifier for the World’s Strongest Man contest series.

Throughout the year, Giants Live events scour the globe in search of the strongest individuals. They have been hosted everywhere from Australia to Iceland, with the UK and USA frequently being the primary host nations. Each of these adrenaline-pumping contests typically involves a mixture of five events that test up to 14 athletes in one evening of competition. If you’re on form and secure a top-three podium finish, you’ll not only earn a generous prize but also one of the three golden tickets to the WSM Heat stage from each event.

Where does this position you? It means you have become one of the 30 men who will compete in the Group Stages of the WSM Finals. Each of these Heats or Groups has six athletes, and they are narrowed down to just two who make the WSM Final – the top 10 in the World. Those ten men then face a further five events, and the winner is crowned the World’s Strongest Man.
