You PL have it ingrained in you that a 112-115KG guy, should not be competitive with a 125KG guy........what a load of s**t!



Have to disagree with you there mate. Certainly at the top end of the sport 10-12kg of extra muscle is going to make a hell of a difference to performance

So you dont get guys in say for example 90 outlifting 100s

Or 100s outlifting 110s

As I say PL will never be ultra competitive IMO as long as you stick with 25 million weight classes

Take strongman for example....a 125KG Pudz competes very well against a 180KG Terry

Weight is not the be all and end all

Yes you do but it's not the norm. Actually between the 90 and 100 class there often seems quite a big division. Even your own example of terry vs pudz, terry is a better static lifter (OHP apart maybe). So thats those 2 examples taken care of. You know there's not a million weight classes right?

Weight is not the be and end all, but between 2 well trained and talented athletes it is an important factor.

PL is very competitive at the top of the sport aka IPF worlds.

It may seem as a suprise but people involved in PL actually do know a thing or two about their own sport! Happy

Eh? Pudz used to murder Terry OH and squat.....leaving only DL, so Pudz is better statically

Mick Ashurst, superb PL in the 120/125 (or whateva it is)

Mark Clegg 100KG athlete. Would give Mick a great run for his money in a PL comp

I still don't really understand why we have multiple classes. Track and field don't, and you can't tell me an u90 shotputter (say) is going to be competitive. We don't have height classes in high jump either...

(Obviously I know it's to allow more people to be competitive. Still doesn't really answer WHY.)
