    So this year Thor dominsted strongman, becoming the first man to do the treble; win Europe's Arnold's and the world'.
    He then turned his hand to powerlifting aiming for the all time total record ...

    He failed and what does this tell us?
    Well for a 6ft 9 person he is statically stupidly strong, insanely I'm fact.
    But strength is specific and if you don't train for depth you won't hit it in comp.

    And deadlifting with straps when you are fresh is different from without after maxing in your squat.

    So powerlifting is different from strongman and probably more different than we thought so hard to compare the two.

    Oh and Thor is a monster
