Standing at 6ft 6.5 inches, Terry Hollands is one of the biggest strongmen today. He has been a common stable in Strongman sports since 2008, despite rarely finishing in a top 5 or top 3 spot.
Recently he lost a lot of weight, got ripped and tried his luck in bodybuilding. However, now it’s time to get strong again!
Terry has been slowly building his strength up again for a 2020 comeback and the first stop is Britain’s Strongest Man 2020. Terry will have his work cut out for him as a lot of world level top strongmen are British.
Graham Hicks, Stoltman Brothers, Mark Felix are all top-level Strongman and now with Hollands, the “British Giant”, back competing it’s going to get really crowded at the top.
As you can see, Terry is making light work of some really impressive weights. That last 180kg stone seemed like it didn’t even give him a struggle, which is a terrifying implication. Terry has stated in the past that when he lost a lot of his mass he also lost some strength but he felt way better.
Now it looks like despite losing the weight, his strength is slowly coming back to him. Hollands being lighter would also imply he would be faster and have better cardio, which must be an advantage for him. Especially now that the modern top-level strongmen are a bit lighter and faster on their feet, unlike the mass and power 400lbs monsters like a prime-Zydrunas Savickas, Brian Shaw, Eddie Hall or Thor Bjornsson
