Feats of strength have been the subject of human admiration since the dawn of time. Long before there were deadlift numbers and clean and jerk records, there was that other kind of strength - the strength that was immortalized in epics and legends, like Hercules shouldering the Erymanthian boar.

 

 

The world isn't quite as exciting now as it was back then. We haven't seen any hydra around our parts, but maybe that's just us. But amazing feats of strength are still performed and admired by people everywhere. And even though we may not be able to shoulder mythical boars and Cretan bulls, we can still have fun with yokes, cars, and giant tires.
