Offbeat Video

A strongman showed off some unique strength training as he battled a revving car in a supercharged tug of war.

As bench press world champion Kirill Sarychev stood in the street outside Moscow on April 17, he was determined to show off his power.

Holding one end of a rope tied to a Nissan Silvia, Kirill held on to the other end as the driver put his pedal to the metal.

With smoke rising from the spinning tyres, the car only moved from side to side as Kirill – who can bench press 335kg – used his whole body to stand his ground.

Kirill Gavrilov, who filmed, said: “I was shocked.

“It was amazing to witness such a show of strength and power.

“Kirill is a real machine.”
