I don't think you need a max event at every comp.

I agree.

Although yes it is nice to have max lifts, we already have giants live running the worlds deadlift championship and the log lift too... So from a marketing point of view alone, they're not going to give away a max lift in any other event they run.

I do agree, but they could of had at least one max event. Do squats for a change, (to decent depth) or dare I say bench. People might think bench is boring, but to the casual lifter, or the man on the street, It is the only lift they care about.


BENCH ??? Noooooooooo Eek

I think I'd rather see a front hold/arm wrestling medley... just.

On a serious note, chuffed to see Felix performing as he did, what a fooking hero that man is. Loz getting through unscathed is encouraging for WSM and really hope he can build on this and go on a decent run.
Well done ED blah blah blah...

In the UK or world? Surely in the UK no-one can touch Eddie?

I would actually like to see the odd bench event thrown in. Could do it on an axle if you wanted to make it more strongman friendly.
But like already said it's something the general public could relate to

I never understood the anti-bench views that most strongman fans hold.

Is the prospect of Z vs Hall on bench not a wonderful thought?

If the current crop of WSM guys Had a bench comp I'd put my money on Radz.

People thought log from stands at Arnold's was s**t. Bench is basically the same but looks visually s**tter.

But from an interest point of view and casual gym goer view..500lbs for reps would be interesting.

admittedly I have only spectated at one pl comp but the bench part of that was as boring as s**t. The crowd were well up for it during the squats but bench totally drained the life out of that audience. It was like the interval entertainment between the two main acts. And I'm as big a pressing fan as anyone.

Yeah maybe you're right then. But then again, this is strongman. Can't they just bench some supermodels or a Shetland Pony!

I once remember a comp in Sweden where they were benching quad bikes, it wasn't that bad

I'd enjoy a similar bench set up in strongman as a one off Happy
