The strongest woman in America is…a mom? Yup, you read that right. This past weekend on September 29, 2018 in Long Beach, CA, Kristin Rhodes won her eighth (EIGHTH) America’s Strongest Women title in the heavyweight class. The 43-year old is also a world champion, winning the United Strongmen World’s Strongest Woman, held in Finland, in 2012.


This beastly mother of three managed to pull a 565-pound axle bar (a thicker bar) deadlift, speedily carry a 500-pound yolk, and press a 200-pound log for nine reps. Look at this deadlift!


And this Yolk Carry!
