What happens when a Powerlifter gets into a strength battle with a Street Workout specialist?



From Fitness & Power


Everyone appreciates their sport and claims that their sport builds strength and muscle the best. But what really happens when a powerlifter meets an experienced calisthenics athlete and they get into a strength battle ?


Romano Rengel (a 25 year old powerlifter) and Bertrand Mbi ( a 24 year old street workout athlete) decided to challenge each other and see which sport creates a stronger athlete. The rules were simple – they both needed to do a few exercises with a certain loading. The exercises were as follows:

  • 20 reps with 100 kgs on the bench press
  • 15 pull ups with 40 kgs additional weight around the waist
  • 15 dips with 40 kgs around the waist
  • 25 squats with 90 kgs on the bar


Here is how the contest went down :



The Street workout guy started the contest a bit too confident if you ask me.
