Feats Of Strength

Feats of strength are all about improving your strength, fitness, and adding a bit of physical showmanship and flash to your capabilities.

On this page you will of course find literal feats of strength, but also more generally impressive physical feats like the five-minute burpee challenge, which will push even the fittest individuals to their limits if they go all out and seek to progressively improve.

The articles linked off this page attempt to explain how you can work up to these various feats.

Some of these moves are advanced, and you may want to consider laying a groundwork of more basic bodyweight exercises if you feel they’re too much for you.
