Any requests?

I'm looking for inspiration to new feats of strength. If any readers have some request please post your suggestion in the comment section and I'll try to do it and make a video with the attempt. I can also send you the creation as a souvenir. Go ahead and challenge me!

Hammerslag in Tivoli

Ps: I put a new video on youtube, where I set the "hammerslag" season record in Tivoli. Go to youtube.com/simonstrongman

Bakken Bears: National champions

The 18th of April the Bears won the Danish championship in basketball. As strength coach for the team I am proud of the performance this season. They worked hard to earn the title. At the finals Bakken Bears beat Svendborg Rabbits in 4 games in a row and Monday night the team took the title as national champions.

As a strength coach I work with the team in the weight room improving the strength of the movements they use on the court and I also take them through exercises to prevent injuries.

To motivate the team I do a feat of strength every time I introduce a new program (once a month) plus give the guys a motivational speech.

Watch me crush a aluminum can of CULT Energy drink for the team on http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=10150419811420424 (You will need a Facebook account to see it).

Congratulations to the team - you earned it!

Thank you for the comments

Right now I'm in Turkey on training camp with Danish Archery Federation so I'm not able to put on new video clips on Youtube or update my blog. But I want to thank for the comments here on the blog and on Youtube. I've only been online for a short time, so it means a lot to me.

I really appreciate the encouragement and welcome any questions and feedback by readers and viewers.

Article in Jyllandsposten Aarhus

So this January I was contacted by this sports journalist from Jyllandsposten Aarhus, who wanted to do a portrait of me and write about my coaching. The interview and article ended being about my hobby as well. The tittle is "Strength coach rolls up frying pans". Read the article here (danish).
Or you can check out the feat of strength the article is referring to in this blog post from April 7th: Simon Strongman - Rolls up a thick Ikea frying pan.

Also, remember to check out my Youtube channel for more feats of strength on youtube.com/SimonStrongman.

Simon Strongman - Rolls up a thick Ikea frying pan

I'm the strength coach of a professional basketball team Bakken Bears, and every time I introduce a new program, I do a feat of strength. This video is from last year, where I gave the team a pep talk just before the finals and rolled up a frying pan to motivate the team.

Check out my Youtube channel

Check out some of my feats of strength on my Youtube channel SimonStrongman.  On the channel you will see me rip a phone book in half, tear a deck of cards, rolling up a frying pan, closing Captains of crush hand gripper no. 3.

Here's the video where I rip up a deck of plastic coated Casino cards (56 pieces).
