What is the most physically demanding sport?
There is no way that you can explain this to someone unless they have done it them selves. Contrary to popular belief, (according to ESPN) Snow-cross (Snowboard racing down a man made track) is the most physically demanding sport. Most people reading this are in denial right now thinking "you just stand and go" I dare you to try. A hard session on a snow-cross track drains every muscle in your body exhausting you yet still requiring you to have great amounts focus to ensure you are on the best line and jumping the best sets.
There is some controversy with that. Also contrary to popular belief, I would actually have to say cycling is the most enduring. The Tour de France is over 3500k in 19 days at about 35 Km/H. Also, no athlete trains as much as a cyclist.
Boxing is no doubt a physically-demanding sport, requiring a wide range of skills, among them strength, stamina, timing and a high pain threshold. But the most physically demanding sport ever? My vote goes to multi-sport competitions such as the Olympic decathlon and the Ironman: in terms of the amount of training needed to successfully complete them, they far outweigh time-limit sports such as boxing and martial arts.
Without a doubt, cycling. Cycling means you get your butt on a saddle for six hours, keeping in mind breakaways, sprinting, and bike handling. Hills and long miles make this sport extremely hard and challenging. Though millions believe that all you do is pedal, that is a HUGE understatement. These people know nothing about the challenges about this internationally acclaimed sport. Cycling is THE most physically demanding sport--NOT basketball, baseball, football, or any other American…
There is no single art that can be considered the most demanding. Properly motivated, all of the martial arts can be very physically demanding, depending upon the effort put into it by the artist. Many arts are expected to be combined with cross training to include aerobic activities such as running and power building things like lifting weights.
It depends on the sport. It's not very physically demanding to play golf, but you better believe your sweet patootie that Boxing requires immense physical demand. Many of the traditional Olympic sports are very, very physical and require many years of training just to do a few things. One could certainly learn and perfect more dance moves in less time than it takes to learn and perfect one gymnastic move.
I've often asked this question. The typical answer is that most consider a 'sport' to be an activity that is physically challenging to the partaker. Most say that the conditions in which the drivers are subject to, it is physically challenging and that not just anyone of average health could handle it.
what the heck...what type of question is that!!!!!! None, all sports require physical ability and if you don't want to be in a sport that is not very sport demanding then join something like chess!!!!!! REPLY: Calm down. For one, I play a number of sports. For two, I am doing an essay, and If anybody knew of any sport that is not VERY physically demanding, I didnt say there had to be no involvement…
Many would say that the Olympic sport of Decathlon is the most demanding physically and requires the widest range of abilities. Certainly those who compete at the highest levels in the triathlon must be considered too. Those who run the Ironman events, consisting of a 2.4 - mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and then a full 26 mile, 385 yard marathon run, all within 17 hours to even be considered a finisher, are amazing…
Well hard isn't quite the word to describe wrestling. It's demanding that's for sure and depending on your weight class and skill it can definitely be hard. What sport isn't hard though? I don't think there is any point in participating in a sport if it doesn't challenge you mentally AND physically. Wrestling is amazing. Never be afriad to get out on that mat and give it your best shot! :D
