if it was me i would be investing in some of those hooka you can get instead of straps! just an idea? less time to strap onto the bar. dunno if they would work on an axle but sure with a hammer they could be adjusted

That is an excellent consideration which I've never heard or thought of before

If it's within the rules and is allowed

I don't like the idea of an event where placings can come down to who can strap to the bar the quickest tbh. I'm going to practice strapping myself to an axle for reps!

I can't see you needing straps Robbo.

Smallsy - yes, Paul is defending his title.

i thought he had an injured bicep? isnt that why he did not do ESM and not doing BSM only 3 weeks before this comp?

A 275 axle will be tough I reckon Ben! Especially after other grip taxing events, but I could be wrong.

For the guys who do need to use straps, the fact it is timed whilst there putting them on is still a bit poor imo

he better be seriously careful at this comp then, I can hardly think of a worse set of events to come back from a bi injury

it does look cool though

Ahh all these people ripping me for using straps, I could stick to that axle in 0.5 seconds !!!

And I like the idea of deadlift medley with straps If your grips not up to par will take longer!!

Robbo I wouldn't say a word it favours you IMO!!
