Watch this Russian strongman move a two-story cottage

Thursday May 28th, 2015

You know you are about to see some impressive stuff when a strongman warms up by squatting six truck tires.

Elbrus Nigmatullin became the first man to move a two-story cottage recently, pulling the 30-ton, fully furnished home across three meters of specially made tracks at a recent exhibition in Chelyabinsk, Russia.

Nigmatullin said that he was unsure he would be able to complete the unusual feat of strength, according to

“When I first approached this house, I was only 30 percent sure that I could make something happen. But when the eyes are afraid, the legs keep on going,” 

For his next feat of strength, the 41-year-old will join another strongman in pulling a 1.5 ton ship.
