And I said the most grip dominant comp I've seen

If I'm wrong then I accept but if I could one day do this comp then I would consider myself a complete strongman

They are similar dimentions to the giant ones used at wsm last year! The handles are same as a regular bar

No problem! The pickup is about 18" they are just under 5ft long if that helps at all

Barrel fingers medley
Deadlift medley (straps)

There's 7 events that have hardly any grip work in them!

How is it a grip dominant comp?? It's well laid out IMO

Arm over arm - forearms pumped to death 2 events later farmers ! That's enough to recover... If it's not.. TRAIN TO

maxle and tyre flip are hugely dependent on grip aren't they?

tacky on the tire will be allowed even though I personally don't think the tire is taxing on the grip and max axle is a bit taxing on the grip but not the weights guys will be lifting IMO

ah cool

I'd wager hixxy will get the maxle in to the realms where grip becomes a factor

If you doh the axle then yes but most will cup the bar overunder up to the belly then swap doh to clean to chest! Which will not be grip taxin at all !

I did 12 reps on a 200kg axle cupped grip and my hands are the size of a small racoon !

1stly, if you want to win the deadlift medley, you wont be using straps!

Maxle (which a lot of guys DOH to the belly) is definitely taxing on grip

Arm-arm (with very thich rope) is VERY grip heavy

Farmers (slightly thicker handle, if they are the 2009 farmers...which I suspect they are?) at 150 is very grip heavy

The comp is what it is, I think for people I speak to , the main problem is the guy who selected the events has the best grip in the country (at 105) and is one of the best movers in a comp with only one or two (of 9) static events
