August 18, 2018 was the first ever KY STRONG CLASSIC contest. Going forward this will be an annual contest held in conjunction with the KY OPEN BODYBUILDING CHAMPIONSHIPS! This contest consisted of bodybuilding, strongman and CrossFit.

It’s always a good day to host a strongman contest and to welcome new faces to the world of strongman. Almost half of the competitors at this show were doing their very first Strongman Corporation contest!!!

Several strongman crews were represented from Resilience Gym, Team Derks, Louisville Strongman and KY STRONG Gym. All crews came together to put on a show. Lots of exciting lifts were accomplished.

It was a great day of strongman and hopefully everyone will join us as we move this contest to the Lexington Convention Center next August.
