    KSI was the strongest, Tobi was the most impressive, Ethan had the best form, and Vik was the most surprising

    Please sidemen do this again, with all the boxing training that has been we want to see it. AND ADD SQUATS

      @ur biy strength isn't proportional to age, they might become weak with age

  • Skelly
    Skelly 4 months ago +18

    realistically, tobi and vik are the two most physically challenged, so as a ratio(kg to kg), they are really strong, even if they couldnt do 80 kg(in the first challenge), even getting close to doing it is impressive

  • jcbusto122
    jcbusto122 9 months ago +50

    I love how they are all so close so genuine. And it's dope how even though KSI is buff and more popular than them it makes no difference whatsoever. They are still his brother. That's better than being rich having friends like that is one of the best things in life.

    Not gonna lie, the dead lift numbers especially caught me off guard. The boys are all strong

      @KonaloTwo well it depends on what u train so if u train calisthenics then maybe bc it’s bodyweight but if u train lifting or bodybuilding it’s just how much u can lift that’s my take idk for sure tho

      @jowldy I know he says that he does, but I doubt it very highly. He has gained 0 muscle in the last 6-12 months of "working out."

      He's using the "injury" as an excuse because he's the only one that doesn't workout in the sidemen

    Strength is judged on the basis of bodyweight.
    So people who lifted more as compared to their bodyweight are much more stronger than who couldn't.

    It’s dope watching them lift and watching them all cheer each other on. Like JJ literally was amazed and his jaw dropped during parts of the deadlift.

    I'm so proud of Vik, he has come so far and has arguably changed the most out of all the Sidemen, before he couldn't lift almost any weight and now he is competing with the rest of the Sidemen.
