what determines an amateur though? I dont earn anything out of strongman, barely get invited out the uk for competition. Am i really a pro?
Worth asking lol


Defo worth asking as the winner of the amateur gets to do the full Arnold's and if you go the pro route they only ever seem to want 1 max 2 UK athletes.

I was actually thinking the other night that this could be a poss route to Arnolds for you hixx via winning the ams

if youve not made a wsm final, which you havent, I dont see the problem tbh

I'm sure by 'finals' it must mean actually getting to WSM.

For Hix's sake though, I hope it doesn't.

Not sure about that mate, I watched Uks finals last night and an unassuming young man called Ed Hall said HE is the best log presser in Britain.

Well in competition he is Eek

I'm sure him and mongo will have an awesome battle next year to claim that title! I predict a 212.5 log will be what takes it!

His 200 strict looked easy just off balance before he failed it.

With a little legs 210 would go easy.

Nope. If he got anything from leg drive he would use it.
