Mariusz began training for strength sports at age 13. Mariusz cites his key strength supplement as malted milk. "I met a kid, he was 12 years old," he said in an interview. "I could not lift him, then he tried to, and he lifted me up 6 inches in the air. He was strong. This motivated me to work out and become the world's strongest man."

On May 1, 1999 Mariusz entered his first Strongman competition, which was held in Płock, Poland. He achieved his first major success at the international level in 2000 when he finished fourth in his first World's Strongest Man competition. He returned to win the WSM contest in 2002, and retained his title in 2003 by the largest margin ever achieved in the competition. In March, 2004 he also became the Strongman Super Series World Champion.

He initially finished third in the WSM contest in 2004 but was later disqualified. He was forced to return his prize money, stripped of the International Federation of Strength Athletes points from the event, and received a one-year ban from competition. Pudzianowski did not dispute his banned substance violation and waived his right to have his stool sample verified.[citation needed] He then returned to win the title for a third time in 2005.

In the 2006 World's Strongest Man contest, he came second to Phil Pfister, the first American to win the championship since Bill Kazmaier in 1982. Pudzianowski had led for most of the competition, however Pfister won the last five events to narrowly clinch the title. In the final event, the Atlas Stones, the two went head-to-head; Pfister narrowly beat Mariusz.

Pudzianowski regained his title in 2007, winning with one event to spare (which he had also done in 2003 and 2005) and joining Jón Páll Sigmarsson and Magnús Ver Magnússon as the only four-time winners. In the WSM 2007 competition, Pudzianowski said that his target was to become the only person to win the event 5 times, which he did by winning the WSM 2008 competition in the very last event ahead of Derek Poundstone. He succeeded despite a serious calf injury, which he suffered in the Polish Strongman Championship Cup of 2008 and further exacerbated during the WSM qualifying rounds, seriously threatening his chance of even reaching the final.

Apart from WSM, Mariusz is also known for practicing martial arts (he is a fourth kyu green belt in Kyokushin kaikan). Moreover he was a professional boxer for 7 years before he started to compete in strongman competitions. He also won a lot of lifting competitions

I'm going to defer to whatever Oleg thinks on this one. And I have a hunch that if there isn't a lot of turnips and boiled cabbage in his nutrition plan, it's going to be a no.
