BILLINGS, Mont. – You may have seen these Strongman competitions on TV, but have you ever seen them in person? Residents of the Magic City got their chance Saturday with Ron Wilson’s Iron Barn Gym hosting Montana’s first-ever strongman competition.
When you think about lifting weights, many people may think of lift barbells or dumbbells, that knowledge won’t get you far at these competitions.
“Strongman is totally different than power lifting, you got atlas stones, yokes, tractor pulls, it’s miscellaneous stuff, but it’s heavy and definitely more technique than power lifting,” said Owner of Iron Barn Gym, Ron Wilson.
