– Have you seen
the size of these logs? – Oh, my God. – Over a thousand years ago, there was a Viking warrior
named Orm Storolfsson. He was famous
for having 50 guys pick up a 1,430-pound mast
from the king’s ship and set it on his shoulders. This eventually killed him, but that feat of strength
lasted over a thousand years. It would be really cool
to try to replicate. – The idea of 50 people
picking up a log and putting it
on someone’s back, doesn’t that seem
like a folk tale? – Probably gained a little bit
of size and weight and… – He didn’t have this frame
in place, obviously, so 50 people put it
on his back. He walked five steps, and then it probably
folded him in half. [ laughs ] – All right,
so what we got here is two logs. One is 1,415, so this would be 17 pounds
over the legend of Orb Storolfsson. And then what we have here, from what we know
of the ancient boat building back in the day, is about a 900-pound log which most conventional
strongmen should be able
to take a run at. – That would break my back
quite easily. – You can see
why it folded him in half. – Checking out the mast
was a little daunting. It’s–It’s gonna take a lot
to get that log up. – What’s the heaviest yoke
you’ve done over what distance? – The heaviest yoke,
the current world record, is 1,565 pounds. – So you’ve done heavier
than this. – Done heavier than this.
But this is really a challenge of balance,
I think. – Because it’s such a huge
object. If the balance point
in the dead center is off at all, it’ll be almost impossible to get it off and lifted and to be able to carry it
those few steps. – Speaking of putting things
on your back and dying, where’s the average man? – Average man!
– Average man! – Average man! [ laughs ] – He’s here.
– You’re up, big guy. – Just try and fit this on,
like I did with my shoulder. – Make sure you’re not
on your collarbone ’cause that’ll snap
your collarbone. – Oh, boy. So don’t snap
my collarbone. Snap my neck.
– Right. – Here we go. [ grunts ]
Oh, my God. – Tell you what.
Use this overhand. – Yeah?
– To pull yourself up as well. – Okay. [ grunts ] – Come on.
– Oh, no way. No way. I literally felt a pop, too,
like… – Yeah.
– Awesome. – When you do
a big lift like this, you don’t start at the max. You got to warm up, So you do lighter weights, and you build up
to the maximum lift. – All right, guys,
so what we’ve got is each one of these red lines
is marked at 6 inches, so a total of 6 feet
to this line, which is a heck
of a strength feat with this big of a log. So if one of us is able to carry it
the entire distance, we’ll use that for a time. If we’re trying to pick it up
and lose our balance, like at the start
without taking any steps, can we pick it up again? – I think it’s max effort,
right? So, like…
– All right. – …if it goes off balance, we just suck it up
and keep going. – Okay.
– Are you ready to go? – No.
– You’re not. – Yeah, I’m getting there.
– Well, find a way. – All right.
– Buck up, champ. – Looking at the mast
for the first time, I thought, Wow. That’s gonna be really
interesting to pick up. There’s no handles. There’s no way to actually
put your hands on and brace these things, so it’s gonna be
a very difficult job, and we’re really gonna have to
figure out how to balance it. – Start. – Head up. Come on. Come on. – Come on, Nick.
– Come on, Nick. There it is! There it is! Again, Nick. Come on.
– Good. One more shot now. Big breath. – Good! Good!
– It’s hard. – Almost there. Done! – Good job.
– Nice. – 19.7. – Atta boy. – All right, well… – Edward?
– Ed, you’re up. – Come on.
– Come on. – All right, let’s have it
Come on. – Brian, I’m calling.
– Okay. – Ready?
– Yeah. – Set. Go. – [ sniffs ] [ grunts ] – Time.
– Boom! – Thank you very much. – [ laughter ] – Three and a half seconds without lifting it at all. – It lifted.
It went forward. – I’m not gonna go that route. I’m gonna pick it up
and carry it. – Come on.
– Come on, let’s go. – Ready? Go! – Aah!
– Whoa, whoa. – [ bleep ]
– Easy, big guy, easy. – You just slid that
the whole way. – Oh, I felt like I stood up
with it. – Well, it’s a good effort.
What was it? – 6.7.
– 6.7. – All right.
Let’s get it, B. – All right. – Eddie’s gonna call it. Let’s go, B! Let’s go, let’s go. – 3, 2, 1. Go! – Let it go, let it go. Come on, come on. – Come on, B. – Nice. Ni–Yeah.
That’s it. Done. – That was good.
– Good? That was good. Solid effort. All right.
– Good carry. – I did it in 10.96, and Nick was 19,
but he had to go first. I’ll congratulate you
for that. But I–I’ll claim– I’ll claim the win
on this lighter log. – Oh, I’ll claim the win
on the logs since I did it
the quickest time– 3.4 seconds.
– I think– I think I take that win.
– No. So we know that this log
is more than likely the kind of weight and size that Orm Storolfsson
probably lifted, due to what research we’ve done
on the ships and everything. But we’re not here
to beat facts. We’re here to beat
myths and legends. So let’s get that big
1,450-pound log out and see what we can do
with that. – Let’s do it.

    I love these 4 guys so much, they have great chemistry. Been following them on YouTube for a long time now.
    And as much as I don't like violence at all, it would be kind of cool (and scary) to see a bunch of cocky, drunk idiots start a bar fight with them xD

    i love how these guys literally spend a quarter of each show talking about how they could end up in a wheelchair with one tiny little mishap, and yet they go ahead and do the event anyway. That's why i don't condone steroid use in sports. When your ego overpowers your instinct for self-preservation, it's not a sport anymore….it's a game of life and death, and life and death aren't a game.
