The next round of the World Ultimate Strongman Feats of Strength series goes down this weekend. Oleksii Novikov will be attempting a world record this Saturday, and you can watch it all online.
Novikov will be the fourth athlete to participate in the Feats of Strength series. It all began with Hafthor Bjornsson setting the world record for the heaviest deadlift of all time last month. Following that, other competitions have tried to set their own records in non-competition settings, with some succeeding and others failing.
Now, this weekend Oleksii Novikov will have his shot at glory. Saturday, May 30th, he will look to set the record for doing the most reps of a 100kg/220lb giant dumbbell lift in 75 seconds. Best of all, if you are interested in watching the steam, you can do so for free, beginning at 12pm EST/6pm CET.

Unlike the previous performances in this series, Oleksii will be not be looking to break a world record. Instead he will set an entirely new one, as this is not a task that has been recorded like this. Although some may find this to be a lesser version of what we have been seeing recently, it will still be ultra entertaining to watch him.
Given the circumstances surrounding what he is attempting, it will be curious to see how Novikov performs this weekend. While others are chasing a specific goal of beating a previous record, he will be looking to do as many successful reps as possible. In the end, it will be fun to see this new benchmark be set.
Good luck to Oleksii Novikov this weekend, as he tries to set a new record. He has clearly been working hard and it will be exciting to see that work pay off.
