How to watch the 2019 World's Strongest Man series on CBS

The exhilarating broadcast of the 2019 World's Strongest Man gets underway at the end of the month, and with it comes a chance to relive the athletes' display not only of sheer force but of stamina, skills, tactics, training and strategy -- all put to the test over signature events like keg tosses, log lifts and fridge carries.

Designed to push Strongmen to their absolute limits, the annual World's Strongest Man competition features various challenges of both agility and mental toughness, and since its inception back in 1977, it's also been home to some of the toughest, wildest tasks -- from giant dumbbell presses and squat lifts to truck-loading races and literal vehicle pulls.

America's Martins Licis triumphed over big-name and big-bodied Strongman veteran Hafthor Bjornsson in this year's competition, which took place in Bradenton, Florida, taking the prized title on his first podium appearance. But the road to the top was not without plenty of signature Strongman action.

Here's how you can catch all of this year's World's Strongest Man series, including all the anchor-carrying, car-lifting events you can handle:
