The Stark Center and Rogue Fitness are proud to present Fullsterkur (full strength) an original film documenting the culture and traditions of strength and stone lifting in Iceland. From the age of the Vikings to stone-lifting sailors to the farmers and fishermen of today, strength has always been an inextricable part of daily life for Icelanders who have relied on a distinct blend of physical strength and mental fortitude to carry them through the harsh winters on this unforgiving outpost in the north Atlantic.
Fullsterkur features interviews with professional strongmen Magnus Ver Magnuson, Hafthor Bjornsson, and Stefan Solvi and it also explores the life of Annie Thorisdottir, the two-time winner of the CrossFit Games. Fullsterkur is a rich portrait of a sparsely populated island that is home to a disproportionate number of the world’s greatest strength athletes and it was made in part by Stark Center directors Terry and Jan Todd, who served as producers and historical consultants for the production.
The film dedicated to Terry Todd who passed away on July 7, 2018.
