If there’s one thing we learned today at Men’s Fitness HQ, it’s that stein holding is an extraordinarily good shoulders workout.
We brought in Jim Banko, founder of the U.S. Steinholding Association and previous stein holding record holder (his longest time is 17 minutes, 11 seconds), to put our editors head-to-head in a live stein hoisting competition.
The results? Well, let’s just say this test of Oktoberfest-themed strength and endurance was one of our most entertaining yet.
Check out the video below to learn more about the Samuel Adams annual Stein Hoisting competition, and find out which of our editors reigned supreme in our live-streamed, in-studio contest.
