Right I think this has been talked about before and was brought up again when I was talking to Joni a few weeks ago.

Off the back of the success of the informal Adlington Club meets the idea is for a Sugden Barbell Strongman competition.

Much in the same vein of the Adders meets the idea is for an informal comp that gives people from Sugden the chance to compete in a no pressure enviroment. Hopefully this may encourage a few first timers to have a go alongside some of the more experienced guys.

This f**ker may take a fair bit of arranging so this thread is for everyone to chip in with their ideas.

Cleggy has kindly offered to lend us his gym to have the comp in, so venue is done. Not sure what gear he has there so anyone who can offer any equipment/means of getting it there pipe up.

Going to be a bit of a team effort I think this to get it up and running but it it comes off it should be good.

So lets hear it lads, what do you think?

I'd be up for it and willing to bring any of my kit down that is needed, as long as I can borrow my mate's van on that particular day, or if anyone else has a van up/passing this way?

What kit do you have Jonny, will make it easier deciding on events if we know everything that is available to us?

The best types of strongman competitions are those that have the core events, and not one of those tailored made comps for the organisers, i.e most events suited to upper or lower body strengths! 6 of these core events are:

1 - GRIP EVENT : Timed hold or Awkward object

2- UPPER STRENGTH : Log or Axle Press for Max or Reps

3 - LOWER STRENGTH : Superyoke Or Squats

4 - CARRY AND DRAG : Sledge / Barrel / Farmers / Truck Pull etc.......

5 - MEDLEY : Cross / Farmers / Sack / Too many to mention etc.....

6 - ATLAS STONES : Always a must for the final!

From relatively small experience, ive been to a few comps were 4 out of 5 events are more a less the same lifts. Hope this helps Big Tony! i'll enter if fit! iam seeing the surgeon on Tuesday for an op date!

I suggest utilizing one of those rubber sheets off the Adlington roof, if anything ever deserved an event being designed around it, it's one of those

would there be couople different categories? Could have same events but different weights for "open" and "novice", like yoke could be 320 or 240 or something like that?
