STRONGEST MAN NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
6 p.m., Summit Arena. Free.

You know these events: enormous guys moving a bunch of things that shouldn't be moved. It's powerlifting, it's great and it's coming to Hot Springs for the final qualifying round before the America's Strongest Man national championships in September. Expect to see old favorites like the Giant Timber Frame Carry, in which competitors have to tote a 750-pound hunk of wood 100 feet; the Dead Car Lift, where men lift the rear end of a car with bare hands as many times as they can stand within 60 seconds; and, of course, the Atlas Stones round, in which the athletes lift, carry and load six hunks of rock (between 285 and 420 pounds each). In event of a final tie, the two strongmen vying for first place will have to bicep curl the Arlington Hotel.

The flexing and grunting continues on Saturday; doors open at 1 p.m.
