Fair comments from Karl and James max events are for finals not qualifiers IMO that's why your have to make and do UKs this year Karl. It's going to be heavy and hopefully the guys in it will be able to cope with it......! My original weights on some events on here were heavier but the complaints came.......! So these are the ones I'm sticking with it strongest person still wins and it's not exactly crossfit is it mate.......! Happy

Ok karl u want a heavy deadlft and heavy logs etc? Would you be happy with 140kg farmers a 380kg yoke, a 180 shield carry ?

No...

This is not a dig at all just everyone has there strngths and weaknesses and a qualifier is to give people who come into the sport a chance

The strongest man always wins

Just my opinion probaly a load of s**t but thought I'd throw it in there.

I completely agree with Sean

You cant ask for the static stuff to be heavier and the moving stuff not to follow suit

I'm sure Englands/Britain will have one of max squat, log, axle, deadlift

Hi James
I think we have all heard this "it was my idea originally" but Craig said he had a better venue with the casino. I have heard nothing since. I even PM'ed Craig with no joy. I haven't even been training so if it suddenly pops up now I will be well ticked off. If nothing happens with it I will talk to some people about putting it on next year.


British Log lifting and Deadlifting Championships will be in April 2014. It will be an evening event at The Grosvenor Casino in Reading. Just confirming dates this week

I dont think what Karl is suggesting is that all the weights be made heavier but instead have a heavy and light option on a couple of events and maybe a max event.

If there is a heavy yoke, farmers or shield as you mention it will put people off as they know they cant lift them. But if you have a light and heavy option it can maintain the high entry levels whilst also giving the stronger guys the option of lifting the bigger weights.

Also a max event, like the axle at last years qualifier, with a good opening weight doesnt put people off whilst also giving guys like Karl the opportunity to hit pb's and records.

Anyway, not sure why im getting involved in this conversation as im far too fat for this class.

Looking forward to coming along to watch, last years qualifier was a good comp.

I don't like heavy light options I personally think it's s**t like I said UKs will be nice and heavy qualifiers are for all guys at all levels in 105

Well if I can defend myself, I would have no problem with heavy farmers, yoke or shield , always happy to be pushed myself.
I was not suggesting max lifts on all the static stuff was I ? Still reps but just reps on a heavier weight and it is quicker and easier to do the 2 weights option on these events.

As for the strongest man still winning ...... We all know that is not the case. Who won the worlds strongest man this year? It was not the one man in the field with the heaviest overhead lift, log, dead lift and squat was it.

Is static strength the only measures of strength?

The best strongman won worlds this year

Strength imo isnt about just standing in one place lifting s**t

If you want to do comps were the strongest guy stood in one place wins then PL is place too be

Well to be fair he is one of the top deadlifters in the world plus he was the strongest on this years final that's why he was crowned WSM that's kinda what happens on that given day or days the best man wins.......! May not be the strongest at all events but being consistent counts.......! Happy
