The Arnold Classic has so many events going on..it is impossible to get to every one. Ballroom dancing, skateboarding, fencing, arm-wrestling, cheerleading, children’s crossfit….I had hundreds of photos to choose from. Here is a sample of some of the events at the Expo.
Bigg Dogg Strong Side Handle Car Deadlift– Contestants deadlift a car for maximum reps.
Mighty Mitts Challenge: The Jowlett Anvil competition. It weighs approximately 163 pounds and is placed on the platform with its horn pointing upward. The challenge is to grasp it by the horn with either hand, lift it off the ground and walk/run as far as possible forth and back across the front part of the 50’ stage within 30 seconds. The prize-money ($1000) went to the man who carried it the greatest distance.
