Golovan is listed in the top 10 of Russia’s strongest people. He aims to become even stronger in life and his motivation is fitness.

The duo went through three exhausting drills – Squats (15 x 200 kg), Clean and Press (15 x 100 kg), and Dumbbell Walk (2 x 40 kg – 10 m) & Farmers Walk (2 x 120 kg – 20 m).

Eventually, Nikita Golovan ousted Alexandr Luzanov. It was a tough encounter between the pair who went through the drills withstanding tremendous pain. The strongman emerged as the victor by defeating the powerlifter. But in the end, fitness certainly won.
