The Strongest Man in History: Brian Shaw’s Toughest Carry Yet (Season 1) | History

October 21, 2019


Come on beat oh I’m gonna have a heart attack right Nick. No, I’ve never had 350 pounds humbled me So roughly I seriously don’t know if anybody’s gonna be able to I really didn’t fence me. Oh Man you got a setup sweet as You guys know? the most famous feat of strength that Peter Francisco did was to pick up and shoulder an Eleven hundred pound cannon and carry it off a battlefield much like this right here. That’s beyond absurd I want to make sure that I’m being very respectful with how I put this because I really look up to Peter Francisco But the man did not put an 1,100 pound cannon on his shoulder. It would have killed him. These are all period-correct cannons so the little one on the end there is 250 pounds this one right here is 350 pounds this one jumps up to 700 pounds and the one on the end is right around a thousand pounds. Whoo so when you say this is 700 pounds you mean the whole contraption but the wheels the Stakes the metal the rope all this is at least 700. No, no just the tube Just right here 700 pounds. The whole rig is around 2,000 pounds. Oh my gosh This one’s ringing bells for me Right this one like 1,100 in total and then the barrel on the time that one 350 seems doable I can envision this francesco lifting a car into his shoulder running off the battlefield, but it definitely wasn’t 1,100 pounds it was Still an extreme feat of strength, but possible Challenges first we need to see if we get this on her shoulder So whoever can pick this Canon up and move it The farthest to those trees is the winner who wants to give it a go first I’ll go first cuz my arms bad, so I think I’ll be the worst at this Okay I could probably manage ten steps with that like that there was nothing to grip there was nothing to sort of lean on to it was just just an impossible object to pick up and I could see my biceps pull in I Really didn’t fancy it I’m the world record holder in the shield. Carry. I carried a 440 pounds shield over 75 feet I wanted to show the guys I still got it. I’m still here and I’m still plowing through Oh Oh, man You’re right, Nick. No Right away as I stand up with it. I realize there’s no way I’m throwing this to my shoulders It’ll tear my biceps off if I do that and I start walking and I’m going and I’m going I’m going I get a little bit of a decent rhythm and then the whole World just goes black. Whoo. There you go. Yeah. All right. Yeah, I stop I don’t even know if it’s possible. I Seriously don’t know if anybody’s gonna be able to do this Oh, that’s good, I’m gonna have a heart attack The only you only made sideways progress Honestly, this is starting to feel embarrassing. I don’t think any one of us is gonna get this on their shoulder I’ve never had 350 pounds humbled me so roughly It’s insane. I’m the four-time world strongest man I didn’t come all the way to Virginia to fail at Peter Francisco’s biggest feat of strength Come on Come on Even if nobody else understands what that’s like I’m I can’t believe I got to watch you do that. Yeah numbers on the scale can say whatever they want about that, but the shape just Literally doubles the weight I think Big respect to Brian to getting that to his shoulder walking it down the field That’s one of the most impressive things I’ve ever seen him alive makes me respect Peter Francisco even more Having known that he did Something very similar to that at 18 years old. I mean, it’s literally incredible. Yes for one brief second I actually felt a little bit like Peter Francisco You You

  1. John cena could have done it because he has put The Big show who is 200KG/383 pounds in a firemen’s carry multiple times for the AA.

  2. I'm a HUGE Brian Shaw fan, but even he couldn't walk in Louis Cyr shoes and repeat his lifts the way he did… Brian Shaw is an amazing athlete, but the strongest man in history is still Louis Cyr.

  3. Look how those guys were carrying it this is staged Brian Shaw got his hips down and used forearm guards. The other guys just used their biceps.

  4. I thought carrying a 20kg (50lbs) mortar tube for a quarter mile in a forest in the military was tough lol. Allthough it has even less to hold on, but it's like one seventh of the weight of that thing.

  5. Now the seyyid ali çabuk challenge. The turkish soldier who in ww1 carried three 606 lbs grenade shells loaded the cannon and fired

  6. It wasn't that peter Francisco was strong, adrenaline can make you 3-5 times your normal strength for a brief moment. Imagine Brian Shaw in that same scenario.

  7. Wife: Can you open this jar of pickles

    These guys in the other room: your welcome

    Wife: But you didn—ohhhhhwutttthhheee

  8. My man Steve from Minecraft carrying stacks of gold blocks in shulker boxes filled to the rim an inventory of shulker boxes and having gold armour on. Along with a shield in his off hand

  9. I was impressed by peter(never heard of him until now)and everyone else but was absolutely astonished when he said that feat was done at 18! Wow

  10. You guys should’ve called some Basque Stone Lifters (harrijasotzaile in basque)… I’m sure they woul have made it

  11. These guys crack me up with hard they are on themselves when 99.9999999% of the people in the world would die or severely hurt themselves just trying to pick that cannon barrel up. Also, welcome to the 95 pound weaklings who down voted this video.

  12. Watching them go through these challenges and how humble and respectful they are to others is truly amazing . These guys guys have already made history and now they're using it to teach us all how powerful humans have been over the years! Amazing!
