A Very Different Sport?

Tonight we went and watched the unusual sport of Saheb A Zaman. An Iranian sport that can only be described as a combination of gymnastics, body building, aerobics, singing and sunday school all rolled into one fun filled hour!

Now before u knock it, I am here to tell you these clubs are ridiculously heavy and the strength required to do this for even a minute is massive.

Below: now this was a little rediculous, bench pressing the barn doors Iranian style. Very unusual indeed but they all did it as part of the warm up.

Below: the actual event lasts for about 5 minutes.

Below: the clubs

Below: the pants did not fit around the front, not that I am bragging
