Nick Best

  • Nationality: American
  • Height: 1.87m
  • Weight: 142kg

Prior to strongman, Nick Best was a world-class powerlifter in the 125kg weight category. His strongman career to date has seen him compete in both the World’s Strongest Man and Arnold Strongman Classic, with a best performance of sixth place in WSM 2010.

Unsurprisingly for an ex-powerlifter, Best excels at the squat and deadlift in strongman competitions. However, perhaps unexpectedly, Nick consider’s his favourite events the yoke and farmer’s walk – a far cry from his static strength roots.

Based in Las Vegas and in his forties, Best is proof that older strongmen can still be competitive. Let’s hope he is still going in his sixties!
