The Downriver Strongest Man Contest is July 12th, 2014 in Wyandotte, MI. This semi annual event is presented by Powerhouse Gyms of Brownstown, Dearborn And Lincoln Park and LoveTheBeaver.com. The last competition was in January and over a $1,000 in prizes was given to each winner.
Hosted by Big B. and Mike Agemy this wildly popular event was standing room only the last time. About two dozen men competed and less than 10 women competed. The name of the event may confuse women from entering, but there is a also an open class Women’s Division. New to the event this year is the Amateur Fitness Show, a Flip Cup Tournament and an open class 315lb Bench Press Contest.
Weight classes for the 225lb bench press contest for men are: Under 200lbs, 201-230lbs, and over 230lbs. Open class for the Women’s division. The most reps in each division wins and most overall reps out of all divisions wins the title!
The Amateur Fitness Show, sponsored by Tittle Brothers Construction, will take place prior to the Heavy Weight Division lift. The Flip Cup Tournament, sponsored by X2 Nutrition, will start at 7pm. Great fun to watch for those who are not competing as well as those who are competing.
Photography will be provided by The Best Of Detroit. Come out and join the fun with us.
