Have fun doing 9 events lads! It will be brutal! In all seriousness, Paul put in so many events so everyone has some good and bad events. I think all areas are being tested

So in the keg load medley, they load a keg from 5m, flip the fingals, load another keg from 5m, flip the fingals, the kegs are reset in the meantime back to 5m, and they repeat the whole thing as many times as poss in 75 seconds? Or is it just carry & load keg, flip, carry and load keg, flip, finished?

The deadlift isnt heavy as I thought it would be looking at the qualifiers weights... But people did no rep on that event which is never great

For the guys who make it this far to compete in such and alternative event with new tests of strength is something I would love to see never mind take part!!!

I thought that.

I think I would stand a chance of completing that!

It'll come down to speed for these guys. Nothing wrong with a speed event though.

The deadlift will come down to a grip test as the 2nd implement is a 275kg axle and those who can lift it without the use of straps will save a hell of a lot of time. There's no test of deadlift strength there really. Still a cool event though.

I think 9 events is overkill personally, but nearly all the events look great. I just hope there's a nice fast turnaround to keep spectators happy. It ran awesome last year so I'm sure it will

5 out of the 9 events will come down to grip, arm over arm, maxle, deadlift medley, farmers and tyre, no surprise there but I do think its abit overkill

Also deadlift medley involves picking up a frame and carrying it, when there is farmers?

I wonder how many biceps tears there will be on that tyre with no tread?

I love to have a moanGrin

More often than not overloading the forearm/bicep in previous events leads to ruptures than technique faults IMO

That's why they happen alot in comps after other specifically demanding events whereas in training most people manage to keep the biceps as god wished

If you mean keV he did do max reps with an axle before he touched the tyre and tore the distal attachment of his "under" arm on the alternative grip

When you put it like that I think your points are valid, very grip orientated as some comps are

Check out tacky for the tyre, straps allowed and use you "shelf" on the axle

Just do your best in the given situation and don't hurt yourself, you don't have to do every event if you twinge your biceps!
