Robert Oberst and his iconic beard began their Strongman careers after trying their hands at a few other things, including a brief flirtation with the NFL and working as a bouncer for a nightclub. It was there that a fellow bouncer encouraged him to train and take part in Strongman events. Robert has “the strongest shoulders in the world” and is the holder of the American record in the Log Lift. He’s also known for his phenomenal appetite!
