For the tensioner I used a breaker bar to give me more leverage. Only turn that clockwise and yes, it's pretty strong but not too bad. I wouldn't say I struggled with it but it definitely needs some strength to rotate it. It's kinda all about leverage. If you can find a spot to put the bar/wrench and can push down while still having access to the belt it will be easier than if you can only get in a position which forces you to pull the bar towards you or whatever. Hard to explain but just think leverage.
