Englands Strongest Man 2021

Shane Flowers

I am 28 years old and a former international powerlifter turned professional strongman. I was always involved in sports such as football and rugby growing up until aged 15 when I was rushed into hospital for emergency surgery with a ruptured appendix. After a year or so I started weight training to rebuild myself physically as I was still underweight, but pretty much straight away I got bit by the iron bug and I never returned to team sports. I naturally gravitated to the heavy compounds and soon after entered my first powerlifting competition. After 7 years in powerlifting with national and international titles I decided to hang up my powerlifting belt for good. 2019 rolled around and the lockdowns made getting to the gym impossible. So with just some sandbags, scaffolding and a few weights I started to train strongman on my driveway. As soon as the world reopened I entered my first strongman competition and the rest is history! 2 years later I am the reigning England's strongest man and on the 2022 Giants Live pro tour headed to World's Strongest Man
