Tough Enough 2

The Bar Brisbane is excited to host Tough Enough 2.

Registrations are only locked in once payment is received.

Spectators Free!

Registration is open NOW!

For the past four years we have created novice competitions which have had a welcoming and inviting environment for beginner strength athletes to compete in while creating a platform for advanced lifters to test themselves before moving to a federation level comp.

With ample parking and toilet facilitates The Bar Brisbane is the perfect setup to experience a first class competition without the pressure of a sanctioned meet.

General Rules.
1. This competition is open to novice competitors who haven't won any prior meets or competed at a national level in Strongman.

(We welcome guest lifters who want to use our event to practice)


2. You must wear a T-shirt for all events except a singlet is fine for deadlifts. Overly baggy clothing isn't acceptable (Track suit pants etc). You need to either have full length tights or long socks (that reach the knee cap) for deadlifts.

A full break down of rules and exceptions will be sent out prior to the meet.
