Here, in a video taken from the World’s Strongest Viking competition on Jan. 31, Bjornsson takes five steps while lifting a 32-foot, 1,433-pound log, which broke a 1,000-year-old record, according to IronMind, a strength and weightlifting website. Just try to watch that video without having your back start hurting.
